Help E32 window issues

Ok so I'm new to BMW went through every thread didn't find anything with the same issue as mine. My driver window is acting up quite badly. It's tools up and down but it stops about 1/2 in to a inch leaving a crack. Now when it stops at this point all you hear is popping from the window motor. I can manually pull it the rest of the way up but then it won't go down unless I pull it back to the cracked position. Also the drivers rear window works when ever it decides to never know if its gonna work.or not. Well if anyone knows what this problem is or knows how to fix it any advice would be much appreciated.

No easy fix. Take off the door trims and check out the motors and arms. Once you can see it all it may be obvious. Check wires and plugs as well.

could be that (most used) gearbox being worn out., like those last teeth gone

the rear could be the switch, or something else electrical, like that motor/gearbox dying.

Mahir - try having someone push the window down as you press the switch.
