I have a similar problem with the same window. The window doesn't stop moving but it tilts forward until it won't close properly leaving a 1 inch gap between the top left corner of the window and the door frame from the perspective of sitting in the drivers seat. I had the motor and regulator replaced but to no avail. I took off the door panel, everything looked fine. Took off all the weather strips and the driver side mirror. Behind the mirror there is the top portion of the metal guide the edge of the window rides up and down. it was partially cracked and bulged out beneath the crack. I gently pounded it back in and cleaned out the guides on both sides with window cleaner and WD-40. The issue will not be completely fixed until I replace the metal guide but it runs much smoother now.
I have had the same problem with my driver side window ,., it might go down but get stuck half way up and wouldn't go any further. take the door panel off and all the protective plastic , it goes back on easly enough, it might sound crazy but i took a bar of soap and soaps all the tracking where the window slides up and down and I sware it works better than my other window I mean it works better than when i bought it, try it you'll be glad you did
Remove the window crank handle (by removing the clip...assuming that it's a manual window). Remove the screws in the arm rest. Depending on the options (full panel, half panel, choo choo custom, etc...) the screws half-way down the door (standard package) the one up by the vent window, and carefully pop the clips along the front, back, and bottom. Lift to remove from the window edge and remove.
In the cold weather with the window slightly frozen I had a similar problem in my 2002 Jetta. The glass stuck at first and then fell into the door. Luckily nothing was broken with the glass, so after taking off the door panel I was able to raise the regulator half way then slide the window back into the bracket. I tightened the bolt on the bracket for good measure and haven't had a problem since.
Take it to an Auto glass place and they can fix that problem.
If your going to try it you need to remove the inside door panel and look at the window rail fram and check the fasteners that hold the glass to the mounting brace. Inspect the guild rails for the window for any damages and worn parts.
After inspecting and re tighten all the nut's and bolts and glass lines up. Just put things back together like new. Good luck and buy new door clips for the panel since they break easy.
I just had the same problem and took the panel off by taking all the screws out. Some are hidden behind black covers including one behind the door handle. My problem is now getting the door panel back on to the door. Haven't figured out how it goes back on.
