Yup, window regulator problems are fairly common. There *might* have even been a Service Bulletin. If that's the case, you might be able to get it fixed despite the warranty being expired.

Try your best to fight them- I had this issue for BOTH windows, and recall many others had this problem as well.

Check for service bulletins, and fight hard ...

best of luck
