My pass. side window will roll down, but it'll not go up. I can hear motor whiring, but it'll not move. I have to pull it up with my hand.

I checked a lot of threads regarding this problem, so today I took the door panel off, disconected glass panel from the regulator by unclipping the regulator arms from window glass slides, and secured the glass in up position. Tried the regulator on it's own, and everything works fine. One click open - works, One click close - works. So I mounted glass again, and same old problem. I'm puzzled now.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

The regulators have plastic gears that can slide out of alignment. Your works when it doesn't have any weight to move? Replacing the whole regulator is likely to be the fix.
