Q: Passenger power window stops moving after 1/4 inch travel on 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My front passenger window will move approximately 1/4 inch and then stop. I press the button down again and again it moves about 1/4 inch and stop. It does this in the down an up direction. It also does this regardless if I operate it from the passenger control or driver's side control.

All other windows function, auto down and auto up with one touch control.

Is this a motor issue, maybe a fuse or I have read something about a regulator

Check first to make sure your glass isn't getting hung up on a very dry glass run. If the window runs are very dry, it may restrict movement of the glass and make the motor labor too much.

Or, it could just be a motor issue or regulator binding issue.
