Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driver side power window works like a charm.
Right side window did as well but today it went
down with no problem or sounds . On the way up it
went up half way then makes a horrible sound.
Thought it could be rust or something in the way ..
Nothing's in the way and I put a special wd40 on it
in hopes I worked but still nothing.. I had someone
help pull it up but it would not move passed the
noise.. I took a video of someone would like to lend
me your email and help diagnose the problem ..
right now it's windows down and exposed to others
to happily walts right in .. HELP ME
