Help rear electric windows seized 2001 156 s.w

I have disconnected the supply because once rear windows go down they jam half way up. motor must be ok because it tries to go. took panel off and pumped in some oil but no joy. any ideas.

oil!!! never use an oil based lubricant, it makes them worse.

get some alcohol cleaner and keep using it till the crap dripping out the bottom of the door is clear. now let it dry for 20mins. now apply plenty of silicone spray to the runners. now move it up and down again and again until it moves freely.

Wow its cool.checked the fuse-ok cheched function of the switchs using test lamp-ok. Im getting 2 EARTH feeds at each multi-plug for the motor at each of the rear windows,obviously one has to switch to a LIVE feed to allow the motors to operate but this isnt happening! can anyone point me in the right direction please.
