Wrangler window crank sticking terribly

The driver's side window on my 99 Wrangler has, for almost a year now, been sticking towards the top of the travel. It's recently gotten so bad that I'm worried that I'll break off the crank. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I've tried WD40 but that doesn't seem to be working. Thanks for your help.

Re: Wrangler window crank sticking terribly

Same thing with my wife's Sahara. About the last inch the window cocks out of alignment (tilts forward). I had it fixed 4 times under warrany ...they even allegedly replaced the regulator. Within 2-3 weeks it would be back where it was again. I could still have them fix it now after a talk with the rep ...but I'll just figure it out myself ......sooner or later.

I just looked at the FSM and it looks fairly simple inside there (under the door panel) I imagine that the regulator (the vertical member that transmits your hand crank action) has become misaligned. ...errr let's see here...it also mentions to make sure that the door glass is properly seated "improperly seated door glass will result in high glass roll up/roll down effort.

Anyway ...pull the door panel off and see what's out of whack when it hits the top . It also says that the glass is attached to the regulator with screws (???).
