    power windows work butttttttt

    you have to keep tapping them...so going down you hold it goes down an inch, release hold another inch bla bla to the bottom...

    would be nice to not do this...any ideas? ;p

    Sounds like the power window motor may be crapping out.

    Yup, or sticking in the tracks?
    There's a sensor in the motor which shuts it down when the tension goes above a certain limit.
    In this case I agree & think dying motor

    Disconnect the window from the arm (3x 10mm nuts) and move it manually to see

    I had a problem like that with my passenger window u might try taking the door panel off and cleaning out the carbon build up out of the switches.
