I rolled down the rear window of my sonata on sunday only to not be able to roll it back up again. seems to have slipped a clip or the motor to move the window up and down is broken. I need instructions to remove the door panel so that I can take a look and get an idea of the parts I need.

You'll need to remove the door panel from the inside of the door. Go to an auto parts store and ask them for a trim removal tool and a pry tool to help remove the window crank handle - tell the clerk what you want to do. Use the trim tool to unhook the catches around the outside of the door panel. Remember to unscrew the arm rest before you try to pull the panel off the door. Once you have that off, you will likely find that that the glass has slipped off of the track that the bottom of the glass rides on. It helps to have someone help you hold the glass as you lift it up and reset it on the track. Make sure that it is seated squarely on the window track and that it rides up and down smoothly before you put all the parts back together.
I had similar problem it was the key switch in the rear tailgate. You need to remove the upholstered panel and then the steel panel and with the window all the way up you can unplug the key switch harness connector to remove it from the circuit. I left mine unplugged and now works fine with just the front panel switch.
sounds like the either the spline on the motor has worn or the window track has detached from the window. Remove the interior door panel just enough to see inside the door & try rolling it down you should be able to see what the motor is doing from there should be an easy fix. If its a worn spline you may have to replace the motor
You can try a dry lube or lithium grease on the slow ones, but it sounds more like you need new window motors. Unfortunately Saturns are plastic cars, and... The window motors are not too difficult to change and it requires removing the outer door panel to make it easier to access.
