    Sounds like the cables on the regulator.
    When i changed mine the whole door frame comes off complete, not too bad to do.
    Make sure you mark where the "wedges" go.. other wise your window wont ever shut correctly again and you'll get a wind noise.

    Yip, definately the regulator, make sure the motors working while your in there. Take your time and mark up the bolts and it's pretty easy
