Power Window?

My driver side window will not go up all the way. It gets almost to the top and then makes a rattling noise and stops about 1/8" from closing.
I have pushed out, in, up and sideways trying to give it a little help. Still nothing. just rattles and wont close all the way. w/ any suggestions
Thanks!!

You may have to get in the door panel and have a look. Maybe part of a gear has stripped.

Sounds like another 6 pack project for my Saturday morning.
Thanks!

I can't begin to say how much fun that turned out NOT to be. I got the door panel off, side mirrow switch unplugged etc...couldnt get the window to go up or down any further. I loosened up the two bolts but it would not go any further up. I did manage to put a 3 inch deep scratch in my rear door. I came very close to loosing my breakfast. I used to not have any scratches that a waxing woldn't cover up. I'm taking it to the shop amd pay to have it done right.

Man, after I got my window to close as much as possible I cut a length of weather stripping and it actually snapped into the gap between window and top of door. 10 minutes later the bottom fell out. It saved me from bailing out the ride haha. I hope the repair shop wont kill me on this,,, also going to have an OBDI diagnostic done as my CEL comes and goes about every 5 to 7 days. Almost 180,000 may be time for tune up?
Thanks 4 the support.
