Question about 1999 Toyota Camry Solara
My driver side power window just quit working. I took the door apart and the motor clicks but won't move the window. The motor gets hot very quickly.
These window motors do periodically fail. Instead of trying to tinker with the motor itself, best to cut right to replacing the window motor. You can buy them online. Don't buy the cheap ones with the short warranty. Make sure you get the ones that have a multi-year or lifetime warranty, as they are usually of a higher quality. I just replaced one for my 94 Camry and the part cost $67.00 with a lifetime warranty. Make sure that the bottom of the window is securely bolted to the unit, Check to make sure the bolt made it all the way through both parts, as it is easy to overlook it if not fully secure.

UNBOLT THE MOTOR FROM THE REGULATOR AND SEE IF IT TURNS AND STAYS COOL WITHOUT A LOAD ON IT. IF THE MOTOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH AFTER YOU USE THE UP AND DOWN BUTTON 2-3 TIMES THEN REPLACE THE REGULATOR, IT MAY BE JAMMED, CAUSING THE MOTOR TO STOP WORKING BECAUSE IT IS THERMALLY PROTECTED. WHICH MEANS IT IS SUPPOSED TO SHUT OFF WHEN IT GETS TOO HOT. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK
