Default Window issues

This morning I had an issue with my passenger side window. It goes down smoothly but when I went to put it up it just jerked then stopped, I could get it back up by doing, up then off repeatedly (it jerked up to the top). I tried driver and passenger switches and they are both the same. All the other windows work fine.
Has anyone has this problem? or any idea on how to fix it, Thanks

Try some lubricant between the glass and the vertical parts of the frame. Silicone spray is excellent but the trade apparently used to use washing up liquid!

It is the sign of a failing window regulator.

HI Marcus


As above window regulator, you need to drop Mickyboy a PM ask him if he as one in his stock if yes then it's just a case of changing regulator over, 45minutes work steady.
