If the motor is okay, you needn't replace the entire motor. You only need to get the gear kit. I just learned this and it was very easy. You must remove the motor after removing your interior door panel. Some of the screws that hold the motor in are difficult to get to, however, and you may need to exercise some patience here. Better yet, if you have a hole saw, you can make a hole over where you need to access one or two of the existing screws holding the motor in place. Once you have the motor out, you only need to take the gear cover off, remove the old one (mine were pretty much wasted from heat, age, etc. Next, clean out all the old particles of the old nylon gear and replace it with the new one and put in new grease. (supplied with new gear kit) New gear kits are around 30 bucks and the entire motor is more than double that, so this is a good fix!

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.
