Default Window drop issue.

So I’m sure there is a thread on this somewhere but I couldn’t seem to locate it.
The issue I’m having is the driver side window does not drop the small amount it should when the door is opened so that it will not catch on the Exterior trim of the car when the door is closed.
The auto down feature works fine and window works fine in general but when activating the auto up feature it will go all the way up stop and then roll down to half way. This happens when the door is closed or open. The passenger side works as it should. So I replaced the “little nipple” (the one that controls the interior lights and is supposed to control the auto drop and up feature) for lack of a better tern that’s on the driver side with the one that’s on the passenger side since it works fine. There was no change the passenger side still dropped as it should and the driver side still did not work. One things to add the “little nipple” still does turn the interior lights on and off as it should.

I have tried the know reset methods with the control switch but have not tried removing the door panel to reach the actual switch on the motor.

Could this his be the motor or regulator being bad?

Thanks in advance.

Also - While you're in there, it might be a good time to service(clean & lubricate) the regulator assembly and within the cable conduit that the window is driven by with some dry graphite lube.

Thanks all for the reply’s you are the real mvps. Oh @travlee thanks for the picture by the way. But I was not sure if both issues were related to the same thing but either way +1 for trolling. 😂
