New issue, 78 drivers side window is not going up. The motor is fine, it seems to be banging on something that won't allow it to go up.

I can see something has shifted down there and see it hitting something.

I took off the door panel but was unable to get to the problem area as there is metal of the door blocking me from getting to the insides where the window is.

Any suggestions?

Will the outer metal before the window come off at all so I can bend back what ever it as that shifted and preventing the window from going up?

Thank you in advance,

As far as I'm aware, the only part of the inner panel that you'll remove is the back panel at the bottom which, I believe, covers the actual motor etc.   From memory of dealing with ours, you should be able to reach anything you'll need to, with some dexterity, from that aperture.
