Why don't you just take your door panel off and figure out what the problem is?

I used white lithium grease on mine, and it helped some.

Just do not overdo it and spray in the rubber track above the door. I have to look at that white crap every day

You can use spray silicone in the rubber track on the little corner window.

Silicon spray lasts longer than white lithium, doesn't gum up like the lithium with age. M.net has tech on doing the window repair, I read it and did it, it worked. In short, remove the PW switch and clean the contacts, pull the door panels and lubricate the tracks and rubber. The white lithium works on the tracks, the silicon works on the rubber.

if the regulator is jacked, I recommend the a-1 electric retrofit kit. One of my window regulator cables was all frayed and jacked, so I bought the $200 kit for both sides. Works great, and no more cables.
