You can adjust the amount it goes up IIRC, you will need to remove the door card then have a good look inside the door, there is a Allen key screw or M6 bolt or similar that can be adjusted that the window sits against, it is to stop the window from going too far up and breaking when you slam the door

Have you tried holding the window button switch down for 20 seconds then giving it a go? :thumbsup, this resets the window motor and tells it where bottom is. :cool

If no luck give the window motor a bang with your fist, it may be a dead patch on the motor, had it lots before.
