A photo is worth a thousand words.

Upload a photo so we can see what you are talking about. However if the window won't drop it could be a dead switch or the motor is dead.

Sounds like the front spare has come loose. Have you checked its secure? :p

Does it happen when you accelerate, brake, turn, hit bumps or just when the car is idling? Could be a control arm?
