Same issue here with my driver's side rear. As long as I don't let it go all the way down, it goes up fine. It is not slow either.

Would love to know more about this.

You can try to initialize the window. Close the doors, from the drivers switch block, hold the window in the closed position until the window is fully closed. Release the switch, and then hold it up again for another 5 seconds. The window should be initialized at this point.

right rear passenger window

I had the same problem where it would occassionally stay down, I replaced the regulator and the problem was not different. I tried the window reset, and now if the window doesn't come up on the 1st try, it goes up in the 2nd or 3rd try. Any ideas?

I had the same problem not long ago. I bought a new regulator from the dealer and followed the instructions on You Tube. Before I replaced it, I tested the old regulator after removing it by pluging the wires back in. It worked fine.
I reinstalled it and it has continued to work fine. I lubed the rails and have not have problems since.

You tested the original regulator with the motor outside of the door, lubed the regulator and rails, and it worked fine-did you install the new one or the original regulator?
