The F-body motor is notorious for dying. The replacement costs about $50 from an auto parts store and will probably take an afternoon for a first timer. Remove the door panel and take a drill to open up holes in front of the rivets on the motor. Procede to drill out the old motor then replace it with your new one and screw it in.

First you want to get the window up, if you can. If the motor actually hums, then press the button while pulling the window up, if you cannot get it up, then you are going to have to be extra careful not to harm the glass while taking the door apart and replacing the motor.

If your talking the spring on a power window it helps raise the window when you activate the power window so it takes some stress off the motor.
