Any idea on window binding to level arm on back seat windows? Assuming there is a membrane and clamp (or epoxy) that attaches the window to the track. the track moves - but the window is binding in the up position - will open the door up - but would appreciate anyone elses experience with a diagnosis / fix.

Easy to envision a situation where the window jams up and the arm breaks the window

There are plugs that can be removed to unbolt the window from the regulator, but you need to lower it to line it up, so you may be out of luck there. If you can get it lowered then the nuts come off reverse threaded. To make the issue worst, if you can't get the window lowered to unbolt the regulator from the glass, then you can't remove the inner regulator panel.

You'll need to remove the door card and inspect it, hopefully one of the access holes will let you see well enough to figure out what's going on. I'd also try running a thin trim tool, or a plastic card through both the interior and exterior to see if something made it's way into the path and just needs to be knocked loose, I suppose that's an easier place to start than taking off the door card.
