Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
I have noticed earlier that it took longer to "power down" my driver side window compared to the passenger side. it was slower going up or closing. today when i opened/lowered my driver side window i could not close it back up. i did manage to close it by pushing power switch up at intervals (where window moved about an inch every time).
what could be the problem?
I had the same problem and found the the plastic clip that holds the window to the guide rails that guid the window up and down was broken. The solution is the window regulator assembly has to be replaced. The cheepest place to find replacement is the salvage yards. Older models will work but some have to be dissemble and make 1 unit out or 2. Another thing that happens is the cables that runs in the tracks get rusted and binds a little, Remove the door panel and lubicate the tracks that the cable travel in, I hope that this will help

I would say window motor is getting weak. its the one that gets used the most. you could try to get some lubercant like wd40 in the tracks might make it move easer. but eventualy the motor will have to be replaced
