window motor??

hey, i've been having trouble with my window motor and now my window is stuck down.. how can you test to see if the motor is bad or if its the switch, or if theres a short... its on the passenger side, if that helps at all? also if its the motor how do you get it out to get a new one?

thanks in advance!

Re: window motor??

It could be the window regulator unit which itself has the motor...that could've been seized.

You have to remove the door panel to access that. The glass is held up by a plastic clip(s) via metal wires.

You can scour ebay for a replacement.

Re: window motor??

Does the motor seem to make any noise when you're trying to roll it up? It could also be a stripped cable.
