Is it the typical side to side shaking like a lot a Rangers do on the driver's side window, kind of like it's getting stuck in the track? If so, you can pop off the door panel and grease it every so often.

You need to get a clean towel and try and get the dirt out of the track, you can use a bit of silicone lube there too.

Biggest help is pull the skins and lube the track with the sliding bar that lifts the window. This is nearly a yearly thing. Again i prefer silicone lube spray.

Thats a pretty good how to.

Once the skin is off you need to pull the dust cover off some what.

inside you will see your window mechanisms. There is a horizontal track inside you need to lube top and bottom of it. Again i prefer silicone spray. Do not use WD-40.

If your having a hard time sticking your cover back on some 3m super 77 contact spray works well. Or similar type product.

I suggest for reinstall to have the window down so you can line up the lock. This is the hardest part of this.
