Hello odtom, Looks like you have the same problem as my Kodak. The contacts below the dial are getting worn and that's why it works intermittently. What I got for my Kodak was some electronic contact cleaner spray at Radio shack and gave it a blast. This worked for about one week and the problem returned. Other than spraying it forever, the mechanism needs the replaced. It's like an old radio with a scratchy sounding volume knob. The contacts are worn out. Time to get it replaced.

Drivers side window works sporatically going up. works fine going down. Is that the regulator or motor. how do I replace it

More likely just the switch. These go out long before the motors or regulators. Start by pulling up the panel that has the switch in it. Remove the switch, and you'll find that you can take it apart in half. Do so, and clean the contacts that you find. Put it back together, and you will probably find that it works now. If it doesn't fix the problem but improves it, change the switch out.
