Stuck windows in my hard doors

Couple weeks ago I was cranking down the drivers side window, and when I got almost to the bottom (nearly fully open) the crank started to feel funny (suddenly started to get hard to turn). When I tried to roll it back up, the crank just got really, really hard to turn. Hard enough that I gave up trying for fear of breaking something (and it wasn't moving much anyway). Once home I took off the trim panel and such to look, but didn't see any obvious problems. I sprayed white lithium grease around where I could reach, and between applying a LOT of torque on the crank and pushing/pulling the glass up I managed to very slowly coax it closed (glad it's not summer!).

Well, couple days ago the exact same thing happened to the passenger door's window! After 167,000 miles and 15 years, seems odd the same failure would occur at nearly the same time.

The glass itself doesn't seem to have any trouble sliding - there's a little play and I can easily grab the glass and wiggle it up and down a bit.

Any suggestions before I just start trying taking out screws to remove the regulator? I've never had to muck with it, but I know they're notoriously a PITA to get in and out.

I took my door off and put it flat on a work bench. took it all apart and re-assembled after cleaning. took hrs as i wear a size 13 ring. reinstalled and all worked just fine. then i traded the doors for a cord of wood. got half doors now.
