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.

What is wrong if the power window won't go up on a 1996 Chevrolet Camero?

If you hear a sound when you hit the switch it's probably a bad power window motor. If you hear nothing, the problem is most likely electrical. Maybe a fuse, relay, bad switch or a wiring issue. My 94 Firebird had a bad power window motor. $54.00 for the motor from Autozone, and $260.00 Labor at the dealership to install it.

The motor itself is a simple motor, nothing fancy, I found a couple of times that the magnet which makes up the field in the motor breaks and jams the armature (the part that actually turns in the motor).. that's why I suggest to make sure that power is coming into the motor. once you verify this and there is, try running the motor without any cables connected.. you could have a jammed cable or dry track allowing the window to pull sideways and jamming it some more.. . if you find that it is the motor, you will probably find that most of them are self destructive, as they are not screwed together, they are assembled and another machine basically folds the metal closed. so to open the motor may make it impossible to re-assemble.
