Same problem here. Just stopped working today... When using the switch, lights dim and voltmeter moves. I figure short in the motor.

Here are the instructions:

1 Raise the window fully if possible. If not, you will have to support the window during this procedure. Disconnect the battery ground.

2 Remove the door trim panel. On a 1991-1994 there are three screws, two above the door handle and one in the corner. You also have to pry out the switch cluster using a screwdriver.

3 Disconnect the window motor wiring harness.

4 There may be a drill dimple in the door panel, opposite the concealed motor retaining bolt. Drill out the dimple to gain access to the bolt. Be careful to avoid damage to the wires.

5 Remove the motor mounting bolts (front door) or rivets(rear door).

6 Push the motor towards the outside of the door to disengage it from the gears. You'll have to support the window glass once the motor is disengaged.

7 Remove the motor from the door.
 


















well, look at that

Well, what do ya know, I took the door apart, tested the motor and it was fine.

I then lubed the window regulator (which is the scissor-like thing inside the door that actually lifts the window) and the tracks and everything else in there that moves, and the window is working.

Happy about saving the $50 for the new motor :)
