Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it's stopping in the same place each time then odds are there is something physically blocking movement. A bad window motor or loss of power or ground to it will stop the window from working but it sounds like you have a mechanical issue preventing movement. There may be something foreign in the door stopping movement, a broken regulator, or whatever you're seeing with the seal could definitely be binding the glass. Can you elaborate on what you're seeing with the seal or upload picture or video?
