You might try and see if the switch itself is "sticky"...

By Balky if you mean slow? If so you most likely have a friction problem a weak motor or high resistance in the wiring or switch. If it works intermittently, bad switch, motor or wiring between the doors and A pillars. Door panel? Should not be hard, every car is different so its a learning experience. Lube the regulator gears and pivots with Genie GLU-3 Screw drive garage door opener lube or any light grease rated for low temp use. The GLU-3 is available at Home Depot. Stuff is not cheap but it will not thicken up and bog down the motor. Lube the window track with a quality 100% silicone spray like Permatex 80070. Lubing the window track would be my first move as the door panel does not need to be removed. Just lower the window and spray down the sides of the window track liberally then run the window up and down several times. This will either make a huge difference or none at all. Keep in mind if you are going to do any painting in the near future do not use silicone spay as it will stay air born for some time and cause fish eyes in paint when applied.

I have a 93 and 97. The door panels from a 94 should be the same as the 97. If you have door panel lights you have to pop off the lens to get to another door panel screw. These are getting really cheap to buy and it pays for itself the first time you use it and will save you alot of money.

Sometimes the fix for a slow power window motors are these, after time they get out of round.

Out-of-round isn't a big deal, but breaking into pieces is problematic........

The assembly of the two parts of the gear compresses the pegs into an oval shape.
