Windows, (driver and passenger),  do not go up or down smoothly, and will not go up all the way, without pulling on the top of the glass.   The switches and motors seem to be working, just limited movement.  Has been like this for a while. 
Has anyone had any sucess with the after market rebuild kits? Or, should I go ahead and replace the regulators? 
Thanks, Mike

Before going that route, I would suggest cleaning and lubricating the window regulator tracks. Might make a huge difference in the operation.
