it is time to go buy a new window regulator. parts store and eBay are good sources. pay an auto glass shop to put it in. you are not going to do this yourself. dealer about 500 dollars, as much as the car is worth, do it my way about 150 dollars total.
Firstly check the wiring then motor is only working one way that means that the power is not being reversed to put it back up, switch the wires around from the switch if it go's back up then you know there is a wiring fault.
On my 2000 bville, all four of my windows came off. All four had the same problem. the upper and lower cables go around the pulleys then connect to a plastic piece connected to the track. This plastic piece breaks and lets the cable free. I fixed them all by removing motor assembly and reconnecting the cable with coat hangar wire. Kind of a redneck fix, I know, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for a new assembly that would probably break again!! Good luck!!

First thing you do is take the door panel off, which pops off with a little pressure. The whole door panel comes out as a one piece, but the door handle stays on. After taking out the door panel, you will see the wire harness for the switch. You unplug this and the panel will separate from the door. There is a black plastic cover on top of the door held on by glue. Take your time to pull it off so that you don't rip it. Somewhat in the middle of the door on top of the plastic cover you will see a part of the motor with 2 bolts holding it. You will have to remove these bolts and complete taking black plastic cover off. Now, try to push the window back all the way up and get1 small hose clamp the size that the channel that the glass rides on. You might have to play with the switch on the front door to help get the window all the way back up, but to do this you will have to temporarily plug back in the rear window trim panel. Once it's up, unplug it again, while holding the window up in position. Put the clamp on and tighten. After that, drill a small hole right below clamp and put a sheet metal screw in to prevent clamp from slipping. This is the only way that you will save a lot of money, because the cost to repair this window would cost you close to $500.00. Granted, the window will stay fixed in the closed position. You can now put the door back together.
My drivers side quit working. I took the door/window assembly apart and found that a small plastic clip had worn/broken. I modified it to hold the cable securely. The problem I had was knowing how the cables routed in the door and window assembly to put it back together. I found an online picture of a new one and routed my cables per the photo. It has not given me problems since. Time invested, about 3 hours. Cost was $0. If you buy a new one, cost is about $80 (online) and time would be about 2 hours. If you have the $$, buy a new one.
