I just purchased a 2002 Camry XLE. When I lower the driver's window it jerks hard before it starts to lower. Then it goes down fine and back up fine. There was residue of the rubber seal at the top of all the windows but I cleaned it off, I thought maybe this was causing the window to stick in the seal but it didn't fix the problem. Is this a window regulator problem?
Do you

Hi suspect rubber in seal has lost elasticity. Clean with alcohol wipe then spray with silicone spray any parts store will have. Try that let us know

I can't seem to figure out how to upload a video. But the window makes a clunk when you start to open it almost like it is off track. I'll keep trying on the video it's not going to show much you might hear a sound when it makes its clunk but that's about it.

Hello,

Thanks for the video, yes this happens when the regulator is about to go out. here is a video of a window regulator being replaced on a similar car along with the instructions on how to replace your in the diagrams below:
