My car is the two door model. The driver's side window just started chattering at the top of its travel and will not close completely. So rain, cold air and wind noise are a problem. The window has to be manually pulled into the correct "up", and completely closed, position. Very annoying! Is there a limit switch somewhere that might be failing? If so, is this an easy fix or do a have to replace the entire power window mechanism and drive motor? Please advise and thanks!

You will have to pull the door trim off and inspect the regulator, the teeth on the driven arm may be worn away and the chattering is the drive gear skipping, if so a replacement regulator is required.

Hi MHPAUTOS: Thanks, this is what I suspected as well, but I was hoping that there was a limit switch that needed re-positioning or something. :D Thank you for your time and your expertise!
