    When you say sticking, does it stop or does it just go up very slowly?

    No it's when I try to send it down, it sort of sticks in the up position and I have to use my hand and help it to move, but once it's going it works as normal. It's just the initial first movement

    Just to make it clear, when the driver window is up and I press the button to open it nothing happens. It's like it's stuck to the wether strip. I use my hand to help it to open and then it works as normal. It's doing my head in and I hate using the window now.
    Any help would be great

    I think you have a Compact, so you have window frames... Start by using abit of WD40 around the window frame.

    Next, is to remove the door cards, and use some white grease, and grease up all the runners inside the door.

    That should hopefully solve your problem

    I've had this problem on other manufacturer of cars and found that a good quality silicon based lube, in an aerosol, more often than not does the trick. Spray it in the runners when window is down and spray down edges of window into door (down the gap where the window drops into the door). Then work your window up and down. Might take a few applications. Failing that follow the next step what Ferret said by removing door card and investigate further.
