clattering Spider window!!?

Hi there.
Another problem with the spider.
The drivers window had been catching on the roof for some time, a problem I have already adjusted once. But I was used to it and would push the door when I shut it from outside etc, although occasionally it would catch and push the glass out as Im all sure you've witnessed.
But I took it to the garage recently and when i got it back, put the window down.. then up when I was in.....
And it now does not stop going up when it gets to the top...and jumps about making a loud clattering sound, even when it hits the roof part. I have to push the down button to make it stop!!!?
Any help on this, What's happened? What do I need to do to make it stop/mend it???
I can only asum the garage not knowing about the window catching has slammed it on the glass and damaged the motor or something?
cheers guys

You probably need to adjust the window stops at the top of the door.

There are no limit switches or anything similar on these cars. The window controller monitors the current drain by the motor and stops the motor when it has stalled.
