i'm wondering if your mirror section has been bent too much seeing that your rubber is torn. I know my mirror wasn't quite aligned, like someone decided to rest something really heavy on it. It made my window not go up as fast as it should have and i bent it back into the right place a little and that helped my window go up just fine now.

i know when jarret owned the car he took out the mirror with a mailbox but i didnt have the window problem then. it was like 6 monthts later when the car got shot up and i replaced the window it was doing it.


which way did u have to bend to straiten..

(runs outside to study this..

mine was bent down a little, so it looked like the lines on the top of the mirror were pulling away from the line of the window. I bent it back up until the lines met correctly. If i had it bent one way or the other too far, it would slow the window down right before it closed. wondering if yours is a combination of motor starting to die and that angle of the mirror rubbing on the window? maybe even use some spray silicon sealant on the parts that rub? or use some rainX to help it go up and down a little easier in spots?

like if you stand on the side of the mirror and you pull up on it, it'll bend it towards the other side of the car. if you pull down on it, it'll move the other way. just don't break anything and do it with the window down

Just wondering if you resolved the problem. It's possible to "bind" the window in the tracks or to have a bent track inside the door. The two vertical tracks have some adjustment available by loosening the the top and bottom bolt of each vertical track. This adjustment allows the front of the glass (A pillar) to be higher than the back (B pillar). I suggest removing the door panel and loosening the four bolts holding the tracks in place and the just slightly loosening the motor bolts. If the window goes all the way up then you know its either an out of adjustment track or a weak motor (used or new motor?).
BTW, you've probably discovered that the black sealant holding the plastic sheet in place will stick to everything: tools, skin, door trim, etc. WD40 takes it right off.
