    Window problem

    My drivers side windows been having some issues with going up, now that it's started cooling off. It'll only go up a bit, then I have to wait a few minutes then a bit more. There's no grinding or anything from the motor, so i'm wondering what I may need to replace on it. Any idea's?

    The whole motor. They're notorious for crapping out, mine went a few weeks after I bought my car. Snag a new one from ebay and replace it.

    The window motor was going out when my mine did that. Here's a guide I used to replace mine.
