So, the drivers door power window goes up and down just fine on my 2005 Ford Escape, except...
When doing 70 on the highway and the window is down about halfway and you go to raise it, it gets very slow as it nears the top and you could hear wind whistling too. This has been going on for several months now and only does it at highway speed. Sitting still it goes up just fine. A few months back I noticed after it doing it again, when I stopped at a gas station the glass on the rear part of the door was OUTSIDE the seal/track that it rides in! I put the window and back up again and it stays in the track as it should. I took the door panel and inspected the drive, the track that it rides on, made sure everything was tight and I could find no problem. It continued to do this, so much that I automatically put the window all the way up when getting on the highway, which is not good as I love riding windows down. I finally decided this is nobway to live and ordered the Dorman part. Got it installed (make sure you swing by the hardware store and buy the 3 extra 10MM nuts to mount the motor assy to door) and like magic, I no longer have this problem, works perfectly no matter how fast I go and does not leak when it is raining.
Still not sure exactly what was wrong with the OG, must have been worn out letting the glass tilt forward when air pressure was on it.
Anyway, if you are fighting power window issues, get it!
