Had the same problem

You need to replace your window regulator. The part is about $250. You can try fixing it. The reason it won't retract when you try to open is that a plastic bushing (white in color) is cracked. This causes excessive play, so the motor can't retract.

My passenger side was replaced a year ago. I actually bought a driver side from ebay, waiting for the passenger side to break.

i can't help you with removing the side panels, but I do recall a website with the directions. Try a google search. Be careful if you have side airbags, you may trigger your air bag light.
