When I push the switch I hear a small noise but the window does not open or shut. I believe I may need to replace the window lift motor. I have removed the door panel but I don't how to proceed from their. Any instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Driver sider window does not work
You should be able to pull back the plastic cover over the door holes behind the door panel and then you reach into the inside of the door, you might want to tape up the window, you may need to manuever it to get to where you can unbolt the rails from the window, then you can tape it and unbolt the nuts to the window motor being held in, if you get a couple wires you can hard wire it to make the motor move up or down by reversing the polarity, just carefull not to cross the wires. this will tell you if you have a short inthe wiring to the motor of if it is actually the motor that is bad.

It is the most common problem of all vehicles with power locks or power windows, a wire has folded back and forth for 10 years in the door hinge area until it got stretched and broken. Possibley many wires. In your case only 7 years.
check switch to window, push switch while pulling up on window if switch is good and getting 12 volts more than likely motor in door that lowers and raises glass if yoy here a noise it's probally a burned up motor pretty tough job in most cases but dont go to the dealer never the dealer ask a parts store who they recommend
you will need to check all the fuses first, then remove the pop window switch and check for power at switch, and power going through switch when button is pushed, this button is on the dash, if there power then you may have a bad release motor,if your blazer does'nt have a hatch release on the dash then you will have to remove the panel on rear door and test there .
you most likely have a power/ground/switch issue in the drivers door. the power for the other three doors must first travel through the switches in the driver door before it goes to the passengers. hence the reason why when somebody rolls down a passenger window and you push the up button on the driver door the window stops moving. the wires can break inside the rubber boot in the door jam. you can also have an internal problem with the driver door switch unit. you would need a wiring diagram to diagnose this concern.
That buzzing sound was probably a short circuit in the switch panel. You will need to take the door card out and replace this panel. First check the fuses though. You may have blown a couple of extras because of the short. Did the door get wet on the inside somehow?
With ignition switch on and engine off activate a window switch... listen for a clicking noise. if there is no noise then start checking fuses and relays. The fuse panel in on the left of the drivers legs. open it up it is well marked and in it you will find a handy fuse puller and spare fuses if they're needed. If you hear the clicking sound then try the Mini cooper Thump. Apply it to the doors midway between the large and small speakers (It may take two or three solid thumps) re-apply as needed
when you push the switch if you hear a grinding noise you will need a new window regulator if you hear nothing the motor is stuck and by pushing on the switch while banging on the center of the door panel with fist or rubber hammer will sometimes unstick the motor
