Don't know about the wobbly bit, but my driver side window sometimes wouldn't open, then wouldn't shut then done what it wanted. Also accompanied by a gritty grating noise. It was the electric window motor that needed replacing. Even at an independent garage, not a Renault dealer it cost £270 incl labour. Now my passenger side front has started doing the same.

Apparently the motor is joined to what holds the window in, so you can't buy the motor alone...

You will find loads of info on how to take door card off and repair/replace a window mech in the forum just do a search, also there are plenty of reasonably priced replacements on Ebay its an easy job to replace a mech took me 1/2 hour and cost £60.
