    Folks any help would be appreciated

    During one of the colder mornings recently I tried to open my drivers window and unfortunately it was froze to the door frame and didn't budge (I was in auto pilot that morning :blush: )

    I let the car defrost and tried opening the the window again with no joy. I get a whirring and sometimes the window sounds like it's trying to move and then nothing.

    I noticed that I can manually move the glass by hand down and back up a few cms but it makes no difference when trying to move it again with the electric controls.

    I've read a few articles on here that it may be the regulator or pulleys, etc...

    Any ideas if it may be a simple fix or is a complete strip down job of the door the only option?
