Relube the tracks with a good grease that will stay put but isn't too
thick(ie, WD40 need not apply here.)  Something like Boeshield, which
apparently is highly recommended for the sunroof tracks, might work
well?  White lithium grease is another possibility.  Check the tracks
to make sure the existing goo is clean, it probably isn't.  If so,
get rid of as much as possible and put new stuff on.  Tada, windows
that work like new!  Well, once you get the regulator fixed ;-)
