Here are complete step-by-step instructions (with photos) on how to test a power window motor to determine whether the problem is in the motor/regulator or the switch/wiring

It would depend what's wrong with the motor... it may be the motor or the assembly.. if your not having any sounds coming from the assembly, then check at the connector if power is actually getting to the motor..In many cases just by opening and closing the door, the wire inside the sleeve that feeds the motor and switch, gets broke , then you have to repair 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.

Remove the inside door window panel. Make sure the window is on the window track. Make sure the window linkage is not needing repair. Replace the window motor.

The ends connect to the spool that's driven by the motor.Once that come off the track or break, you cannot repair them. You must replace the entire regulator.Here's how:http://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/repair-topics/window-power-repair/replace-a-power-window-regulator

You cannot manually close a power window. You must repair the problem causing it not to work. Check the fuse, power window switch, and if they are good, you may need a new motor.

To repair the power window on the 1998 Old Intrigue, you will first need to remove the interior door panel to access the window motor, switch, and actuator. You can then determine which part is broken or damaged and replace that part.

replace the power window motor inside the door. You will have to drill out the rivets and replace with nuts and bolts

It cannot be raised manually. You will have to repair it in order to raise the window.

Not much you can do to repair one of those, replace it with a new one is your best option.

After you get it off, you have to remove the motor which is attached to the window linkage which is under spring preasure. There are very sharp edges in the door so be careful. GoodluckJoe

Test according to the procedure in this article.http://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/repair-topics/window-power-repair/replace-a-power-window-regulatorIf the window motor is getting power, replace the regulator assembly.If it's not getting power, you've got a broken wire--most often in the hinge area of the door.Or, you've got a bad master switch

Check power to window switch. Common cause. Check power to window motor. If none then check fuses/relays.
