Power Window Issue, Jammed closed, possibly track issue?
Hi, I got a 95 tbird lx, over the past few months I began noticing a issue rolling the driver side window down, it would start getting stuck coming down about 1/4 of the way, sometimes it would stop completely at that point and I would have to give it a little push down to get it going again, after this started, I would notice when the top of the glass would get to this area on the rollUP it would tilt foward slightly before coming back, like it might be hitting a bump, eventually it would intermittently get worse, one time I couldn't roll it up or down onceit got 1/4 the way down without a huge amount of banging and tugging on the window.
I was going to work on it, but I've been taking care of my very sick grandmother and have barely had time to breath, when the weather warmed up, it seemed to be fine, but last night the whole thing seemed to give up the ghost, it got jammed coming down again, this time it acted like it got hung up on two spots, 1/4 the way down and 3/4 the way down, and would tilt and bump on both spots on the way up, then when it rolled all the way up, I didn't immediately release the button and it made a very loud BRRRRRRRRRRT noise, (now this isn't the same noise as the gearbox going bad, cause I had that happened and replaced the motor about 8 years ago, and my pass side is making the rrrr rrr rrrr noise and not working) I was able to roll it down one more time and when I rolled it back up fully it just stopped, and apparently jammed up, now it's making no noise at all but the motor is pulling current judging by the amp gauge dropping and lights dimming whenever I try to roll it up or down.
Any ideas on what might have happened before I pull the panel again, I don't have much time to work with, but I gotta atleast use this window, signs seem to be pointing to something in the track jamming or broken.
