I had the same problem with my 2001 LeSabre rear window. Use a small paint scraper to gently pry the door panel in the area of the plastic buttons. Remove the plastic cover surrounding the door handle and there will be a screw to remove. The door panel should now be able to lift up at the window ledge and then you can remove the wiring harnesses from the panel to get it out of the way.
With the window jammed (with a wooden wedge) in the up position, you will see a hex head screw holding the window mechanism to the glass at each end of the glass. Just loosen these two screws about one and half turns. Look at the motor bracket and you should see approx. 3 or 4 hex head screws holding the motor to the metal door panel. Remove those screws and you should be able now to wiggle the window motor and mechanism out of the door panel. You will probably find that the braided cable connecting the motor pulley to the window arms has broken or is jammed inside the motor. I have taken this apart, reset the cable but it only worked once again before it jammed up again inside the motor. Go to your local Auto Wreckers and order a replacement motor and mechanism complete assembly for about $150. GM wants double that price! Good luck!

Remove tweeter housing then one screw behind the door lock panel and pry panel from door either using a trim pry tool or a flat head screwdriver wrapped with a rag
