Replace the Track strip for the window. There is a track guide inside the door with teeth on it and you have lost a few of the teeth on that strip creating a bad spot. It is usually about $12 to $15 and a 30 minute job to replace. Once you get the door panel open it should be pretty obvious how to remove the old strip and install teh new one.

Sounds like your drivers side window regulator motor gear is bad as far as the other windows drivers door switch is most likely bad if you dont have experience working on electrical or have never taken apart a door panel I would recommend seeing a mechanic. To check the switch you have to disassemble passenger door panel accesa the window regulator motor disconnect the weatherpack connect hook up multimeter and test for power while having an assistant push the window switch down

Power window on drivers side messing up


I would say the noise is the gears over-running each other. There is a gear on the motor and one on the window regulator.
You probably have a restriction in one of the tracks.

Driver side door window wont go down it sounds like the motor is working but has clicking sound and no movement for 95 ford thunderbird


CLICKING GRINDING SOUNDS... THE WINDOW MOTOR ASSY IS BAD.. THE GEAR CAMS ARE GONE... CHEAPEST WAY IS TO REMOVE THE MOTOR AND REMOVE THE PLATE THAT COVERS THE GEAR HOUSING..GO TO ADVANCE AUTO AND FIND THE GEAR CAM KIT....THEY DO SELL IT IF YOU GET A LAZY PERSON BEHIND THE COUNTER THATS DOES NOT WANT TO LOOK FOR IT..IT SHOULD BE 3 PIECES THAT JUST SIT INTO THE SLOTS .. YOU WILL SEE HOW IT GOES

Power window does not work properly


It sounds like either your window motor is bad (gear failure), the window regulator is out of alignment or a combination of both. I'm leaning towards the motor because I had the exact same problem and it turned out that my window regulator was binding which caused the motor assembly to fail. They sell them together or separated. It's not the easiest tast to accomplish but not the hardest.
