Somehow the window drive cable got

Motor and switch still operate properly, but
cable doesn't allow window to raise fully.
Anyone have any reasonable ideas?

Take the interior door skin off and if you can't fix the cable, you will need to replace the window regulator. Here are instructions: http://www.dormanproducts.com/DigitalAssets/Document/741- 809_IS.pdf
