Unhappy Window making horrible grinding noise

Today I was rolling down my driver side window and almost immediately I hear a horrible grinding/scratching noise. When I rolled it back up a few streaks appeared that I didn't notice before. I have power locks and windows, and it is a 2002 Jeep GC Laredo Sport... with 177,000 miles. So I guess it's about that time for parts to start failing.


What could this be and is it easily fixable?

EDIT: I decided to give the door a good SLAM to see if it would fix anything.... and it did. I'm not sure what was loose or rubbing up against the window but closing the door extra hard seemed to fix it.


Never knew we had a smiley like this... awesome.

Garage
it's pretty easy to open up the door and look around if it happens again, but nice when the simple fix works

Sounds like the window regulator is starting to bind up
