Drivers window getting stuck when fully down

The window goes up and down at normal speed and there's no problems providing it's not put fully down.

Mine does this. Seems to be common issue and is intermitent.
If you lift the switch very slowly a milimetre at a time it always works. Once the window is up over an inch you can fully pull the switch for full auto close. I have cleaned the channels and glass but no difference. However we have mastered the slight switch pull and so have stopped further investigations which can wait for the summer when i can remove the door panel.

Yeah, try to only nudge it up on the first click. If you go to the second click (the auto-up) feature, it tends to stop.
I believe the cause to be moisture and gunk in the window runners causing resistance as you'll probably notice a correlation between cold, damp weather it being worse. Take a butter knife or anything thin and hard with some cloth wrapped around it and give the window runners a thorough clean out. It makes the windows run more happily for a while, until they get clogged up again.

If it does turn out to be dirty channels, After cleaning the channels (try using wd40 or similar with a clean rag / kitchen roll / cotton bud), lube that sucker up with silicon spray.
