Drivers window goes down 80% of the way they stops?

Hello all, the drivers window on my '93 goes down about 80% of the way then stops about 4" to 5" from being all the way down into the door. I removed the door panel today and there is nothing I can see that would prevent travel all the way down. This happened all the sudden one day. The window travels back up fine and back down fine but slows about the same place each time, about 4 - 5" from being all the way down.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

thats common , either the window regulator or the window regulator tracks or the sliders in those tracks are worn or broken or bent. the only other common problem is the window is coming loose from its connection points

That makes perfect sense. Thanks for the info I'll look everything over tomorrow.
