our rear windows are rarely used and are keep child lock. however recently when using the real right it makes a crunching noise when going down and doesnt go completly up stop half way.

Is their an easy fix or is it a big $$$ job????

thanks

Im pretty sure its an alignment issue, and WD40/RP47 has been known to fix this problem... down side is you have to take the door apart...

I had the same problem, same window lol. I just left it, and the more I used, the less aparent it got, still makes the noises, but it goes up and down all the way.

Cheers

Sounds like the regulator might be gone? If so, a new one is I think roughly a bit over $100.

Before you worry about that though, it could just be some dirt or something stuck in the runners. Grab a can of silicone spray and give the runners down each side a good spray.

Crunching sound is the gears in the regulator rubbing against eachother and wearing down the teeth due to a restriction somewhere.. Do as what has been previously afforementioned.
