Hi there,Have you tested all of this electrically?These are a bit of a challenge to change the motor in so let me know.Thanks.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The window was becoming sluggish when raised or lowered, now has no movement. From what I can see, there is a lot of dust inside the door. I suspect that a cleaning and lube of the parts might fix. That or replace the motor that runs the window. How do I get to those parts?

HERE are the instructions to remove the window motor and regulator. Hopefully this will give you enough access to lube it up at least to try that.Hope this helps and please let me know if you need further assistance.Thanks.
