Window won't go up!

02 Envoy XL SLT

So on lunch at work, I went out with a few co-workers to grab some food. My buddy sits in the back seat (middle row) on the passenger side. He puts the window down and upon arriving to the restaurant, tries to hit the switch to bring it back up, nothing!
All we hear is a click coming from the door. Tried to give it a lil "love" push while hitting the switch, it went up a good amount but it was still about 6 inches from being closed all the way. Left it alone, went inside to eat and then came back to the car and the window slid back down, not all the way, but probably 8 inches from the bottom.
Basically I can grab the window and pull it up quite a ways, but it slides back down. Still only hearing a click when I push the switch.

Any thoughts?

Maybe it's slipping off it's rails. One of the rould nuts that holds the window on place might be loose and causing the window to push one way, causing it to get stuck Take off the door panel (don't break the handle cover clips!) and have a look at it

I was thinking that it may have slipped off its rail, never took the door panel off before (on the Voy anyway) but I'll take a look at it tonight when I get home from work.

Any other thoughts?

from what you said about the window sliding back down seamed like a mechanical problem. if the windowwon,t move then first check to see if you have juice at your switch.use a test lite.even if the other window,s work it,s not a fuse but a in op. switch or wire,s i.e short,ground

I had to replace the back left regulator on mine because it did the exact same thing. I got it in at work and replaced it while on lunch, then sent the old one back for a $40 (i think) core credit after work. It's a PIMA when broken, but an easy fix. Only 80 or so dollars all in all. Not too bad of a problem.

SO i took the door panel off the other night. It seems the steel cable snapped inside the regulator. I also ran into this post.

BullNettles - where did you find it for $80?? I'm assuming it was $120 minus the $40 return core credit = $80 ?

Anyway, since the cable snapped I pulled it out with what slack i had left and wrapped it around the motor, just to keep the window up.

For the record, apparently it was more than 80 after core and all. Sorry about false hopes. I have an awful memory...
