Landrover Discovery SE7: My passenger side front window in

Resolved Question:

My passenger side front window in my 2004 Discovery does not go up or down, there's power getting to the connector inside the door and you can hear the ecu clicking. It was working intermittent and now not at all, the motor gets very hot while plugged in, even without using the switch?!
It doesn't appear as though there's any mechanical damage inside the door.
