Right rear window quit working correctly. I could hear motor spinning, but window would not close. I found that the plastic slider on the window regulator had self destructed. Since I had already purchased a new regulator, I went ahead and installed it. I subsequently found out that you can now get the vinyl slider and just replace that part.
