The cable system on the window regulator seemed to be stretched out, so I was able to at least temporarily fix mine by taking some of the slack out of the cable. Since there are no cable adjusters, I made one from a zip tie wire ties. See the pictures below. This fix allows the window to drop enough to clear the top and I'm going to look at adding a bicycle brake line adjuster to the system so that I can dial it in better.
Thank god the door panel comes off very easily, with only about 4 screws and some clips holding it on.

Instructions to remove the door panel can be found here:

I don't know what you mean when you say it looked stretched out. And that 1/2 way rolled down statement didn't make sense to me. Were you having the same problem as me or a variation? I don't understand your original problem.
