Passenger side window being stubborn. How do i fix it?

So i've had this issue with the pass. side window since i bought the truck, My GF has finally nagged me enough to fix it. It goes up and down very slowly, and i have to put my thumb at the base of the button and push down for it to move at all. If i don't give it the right amount of pressure at the base it wont move. Also, if I put the window all the way down, the passenger side button will not move the window. I have to move it up slightly with the control on the driver side for the pass side button to work at all. And then sometimes the passenger side window button doesn't respond to input at all, as if the window lock button is pressed. What do i have to do to fix it? new window motor?

Whats MID?

Take the door panels off and Honda makes a window channel lub.

It almost sounds like you have 2 problems-the passenger switch and the motor. If the window always moves slow no matter which switch you use, the motor is likely going bad.

I just put a window motor in my truck a few weeks ago. bought it on ebay for about $50. i'm not gonna lie, it was a pretty tough job for someone with my skills.

Im sure there's a way to test current on the switch and motor, but I never did that on mine so I dont know how.

You may want to pull the door panel off and make sure everything is on track and not binding before you go any further.

Sounds like a bad master switch (driver's side) to me.

All the power for that window runs through the driver's switch no matter which switch you are using. Obviously the driver's side gets the most use, and most wear.

Don't know if you can take these apart. I have disassembled switches, filed the contacts flat, and put them back together, but not on a Toyota.
