UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 6 months ago

Hi .

This is a common issue for a weak window motor ,going down easy but going back up can fail to reach the top if the motor is malfunctioning and using up to many amps or very sticky / hard window rubber guides .

As soon as the electric window module sees to high an amp being used it will stop and drop the window a few inches as its thinking someone or thing is in the widow and for safety issue reopens it.

First i would check the window rubber guides and use silicon spray for rubber and then see if the window gos up and down smoothly . if nor open and replace the window motor.

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i/we will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .
