Window Catching and Rattle Fixed

Kind of an FYI for anyone with the same symptoms.

Since I bought the car several years ago the front passenger window has rattled when the door is shut with the window down. That irritated me.

Then, about a year ago, the same window started catching on the way up sometimes (as it should when someone sticks their arm in the way, for example).

My garage has had it in a couple of times, stripping the door down, checking the integrity of mounting points, brackets, etc. and lubricating but nothing solved either problem. They suggested that it could be a non-genuine window regulator that wasn't quite perfect.

Well, I had the car in for an oil change last month and decided to just get a new OEM regulator fitted and that seems to have solved both issues.
