Weird window woes

Took the 84 out for it's last run, had to put some fuel in it before it goes into hibernation, and put the drivers window down. Would not go up. Took the panel off, and found two of the three mounting bolts had pulled out of the skin. Did a repair (a washer and a piece of steel) and it works, except it seems to be flexing the inner door skin. Is this a sign of a lack of lubrication somewhere, or something wor$e?
On another topic, can anyone advise how to get digital photos down to a postable size? Sometimes a decent digital camera can be a pain, the pics are WAY to big to post.

My door does that a bit.

Run a google search for the "XP Image Resizer"

What part is broken? You said it pulled out the studs? Like from the inner door skin or the regulator body?

how much is it flexing. if its not a whole bunch, its just air being displaced in the door. rolling the window up theres more room for the same amount of air. roll it down. and it displaces the air again.

The panel flex isn't air, its when the window gets to the top, the motor still wants to push, but theres no where to go, so it flexes out the door panel. I hope this is normal because all 4 of mine do it.

The studs pulled out of the inner (metal) door skinn, when the window operates, the metal flexes. The window itself doesn't move real fast, but it is about the same as any other vehicle I've had with power windows, none of which I had from new.
Will try the image resizer and post a pic or two.

Usually when the regulator goes bad, or it gets cracked, the windows binds as it moves up and down and puts pressure on the mounting points... I've seen several regulators cracked into several pieces from this, but never broken mounting points on the door itself. O_O.

I would say pull the regulator out and take a good look at it.
