Hi there if you remove the door skin to acess inside the door to get at the mechanics of the window locate the window motor and locate the 3 bolts that hold it to the frame,remove these you may want to put some foam blocks inside to hold window in position while removing regulator assembly attached to motor also remove positive battery terminal so you dont get injured due to window power grabbing your hand or fingers ok , replace the old regulator onto motor and reinstall and adjust so window closes all the way and not to much . good luck with this project let me know how this helped you by selecting the fixya rating .bye for now

You describe a window regulator which has broken. The regulator is constructed with pullys and a spool which the motor moves to either retract or extend the window slide up or down. They are always replaced -- never repaired. My search for an ILLUSTRATION or DIAGRAM was unsuccessful. However, if you choose to attempt repair, I suggest you remove the driver's side window regulator and compare it to the passenger side, AND IF you are mechanically talented, you could possibly repair it. Caution, the pullys are pastic and rivetted in place. if the plastic pully is broken, you'd have to find a suitable substitute and install it (either rivet or nut w/bolt/washer, etc.). If the cable is tangled up in the spool, again caution should be taken if you try to remove it as this may damage the spool. If the spool is damaged.... well, that's a horse of a different color. It stands to reason that assembly was/is possible, but disassembly is quite different. You'll just have to study/examine what's possible/achieveable with it.
It is either the window regulator or the switch. If the switch at the driver's door goes bad it can effect the switch at the passenger door too. And there is no way to test this easily, without taking the switch out and hot wiring the window regulator at the door. If the window worked the problem would be the switch. If it still didn't work, it would be the window motor or regulator assembly in side the door. Hope this helps. Have a nice day :O)
Its probably better to start over and remove the window glass from the regulator (use duct tape and tape in position to the window frame, it will hold fine). Remove the regulator and motor assembly and put together as a unit, then reinstall. Bolt back onto door and reattach the glass. Next time its easier to just remove the motor by itself, not the whole assembly. The rivets can be drilled out and replaced where it sits. You may have to slightly bend the corner of the inner panel to get rivets in, just bend back when done.
What you need to do to initialize the window is remove the window motor from the regulator. Plug it into the car by itself, then press up on the switch until it turns four times. Then hold the switch down for four turns, then put motor back into the regulator, and assemble back into the door. to make sure the motor spins correctly four times I make a tooth on the gear with a marker.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge. you can then test out the switch and if it's not the switch, you'll need to pull back the weather seal to get to the regulator and motor
It either needs a new window motor or switch. To tell which, you can open the door, have the ignition in the on positon or running, hold up or down on the window switch (whichever way it needs to go), and slam the door pretty hard while holding the switch. If the window works, it needs a motor/regulator assembly. If not, look at wiring or switch. If you can hear the motor running, and nothing happens, you need a motor/regulator assembly.
