You'll have to replace the regulator/motor assembly with a new one if the mechanism was damaged, which sounds like it was. Plastic parts break on these systems. If it is snowing and you don't have the resources to replace it right now, try to tape some plastic over the window using duct tape. But, this is only a temporary solution.
The gears on the drive unit eventually weaken and strip. Buy a replacement at a junkyard or off eBay (sometimes available there). Some auto parts stores carry them. Don't buy one at the dealer - way too pricey.
The door panel mus come off (inside). This is medium to difficult as a DIY project.
This nearly drove me crazy on our 1994 Cougar. First
remove the electric switch cover(window and mirror controls). Just pops
out with a pry. Remove the harness attachments You will see a single
screw into the door holding a bracket between door pad and door frame.
Remove it. Second, remove the door lamp plastic cover at the bottom
rear of the door. You will find a second screw in there on the upper
right corner. Remove it and you are ready. Pull the whole door pad
upward and it comes right off. No popem plastic clips or anything else.
Just 3 or 4 quarter circle retainers that pop over into the door when
you push the pad back down
