You will likely have to remove the panel from the inside with the window up. Once you have the panel off I would try to have some one hold down on the switch while you tap the motor with a hammer. Of course make sure the latches are all the way closed as if the door is not closed all the way the window will not roll down as it has safety switches to keep this from happening.
If you still can not get it down then you will need to unbolt the regulator and let it down that way.

SOURCE: tailgate won't unlatch
sometimes pushing in on the gate will release pressure on the latch enough to pop it, but the real problem is the linkage to the latch. it's probably stretched or bent from force. once you get it opened, take off the panel and manually latch and trigger latch it. see how the linkage acts and take out any slack w/pliers etc.

If you can find a used one it is much cheaper (obviously).You need to pull off the tailgate interior panel covering.Also you may not.There may be access to it from underneath.I have pulled apart windows,doors but have never had a truck or SUV.There may be some screws holding down the interior cover in a few spots.If you have to pull apart the interior panel,look for screws that may be capped with those little plastic covers,they like to hide the screws for appearance.Then you will have to gently pry at the seams between the cover and the tailgate.There are usually little pop in pins holding it on.Please do it carefully because they can break.Once you get past the interior cover,there should be access to the latch.It's usually only held on by a couple of medium size bolts,maybe 10mm-12mm.(Everything seems metric these days anyhow).Good luck and let me know if you need further help or have any questions.
