Front door window alignment

Hi Guys,
So Im new to this forum. Just bought a 2001 110 td5 and starting to look at fixing it up a bit. The first step is to have it pass a roadworthy, MOT, out of Province inspection. One issue that was identified is that the window on the passenger side (left hand drive) does not fully go up.

Taking a look at the door, it looks like the top of the door frame (window section) may have been bent in a rearward direction sometime causing the window to hit at the front and stop it from going up at the back.

Suggestions for a fix? I was thinking of getting a block of wood in the front upper corner and hammering on it in a frontward/upward direction to bend the frame back. Just wondering others thoughts or experiences? Should I heat the frame? woried it may blister the paint if I do.

I have attached reference pics.

thanks for any help!

Shane

Awesome Thanks!

Think I might try a jack diagonally across the window braced with a 4x4 in one corner and 2X4 in the other. Need to shift the top front corner forward.
