My 2003 Ford Expedition's driver window has been slow to roll

Customer Question

my 2003 Ford Expedition's driver window has been slow to roll up for a couple of years, and today the window came down but won't go back up. Removed the module in the door where the switches are located just to see if I could see anything obvious. I think the switch has had it, when I put it all back together, the window will roll down but when I try and roll it back up I saw a whisper of white smoke so I stopped instantly...

Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: took the electrical switch module out of the door and disassembled it down as far as I could go.....red my first response, it pretty well details what I've and thnk
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box. OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box. Is there anything else the Ford Mechanic should be aware of about your Ford?

On the Expedition, it is common for the drivers UP button on the master switch to go bad. It usually starts going bad and you have to press hard to get it to work.
