Question about Nissan 300ZX
The motor on the window functions but the window hangs up going up or down. I have to open the door and push the window down or pull it up with the motor working in conjunction with that effort. Sometimes the window will 'slip' a hair when I have been driving awhile.

Pull off door panel speaker and switches. lower the window to where you see the two or four 10millimeter that connect scissor mechanism to the window. Prop window all the way up and put a door stopper to prevent the window from falling down. Unbolt window motor, unplug window motor, and unbolt eveything else in the door. Pull it all down and out through the bottom largest whole, lay flat on ground the entire indoor mechanism, out where you can see it on the floor. Take a pic with camera, and proceed to swapping regulator, intallation is same as removal. Good Luck

My window was experiencing the same problem, although it never worked poorly, it only quit working downwards, but went up fine. The trouble was in the switch. Disassembled the switch, re-set the pegs and springs, re-assembled and now everything works fine. I assume one of the pegs simply sprung loose, and would contact the plate when "up"position, but was too far out of reach to contact for "down". If the regulator wasn't the problem, this is much easier to check. Make sure if you do disassemble the switch to keep it upside down when you do it, so as not to loose the pegs and springs within. Hope you found a solution.

Cars getting old but if your handy getting the door panels off and removing the motor the motor has clutch Plastic bumpers that die of old age. Auto parts stores sell these in a pak of three made as a Help product- Motormite- Dorman/ This is a common old ford with electric windows problem

Are you able to loosen any other bolts that could cause the window to come down more? You could also try manually turning the gears to lower the window...

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the nuts from the regulator cover plate
Remove the regulator bolts (1, 2, 3) and remove the motor/regulator from the vehicle
Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Install the regulator drive cable (1) to the rear of the cover plate
The regulator drive cable goes into position (2) for the coupe and position (3) for the sedan.
