Sounds like it may just be the window bushings?
That window not going all the way up or making clicking noises? It's not the motor but the plastic bushings inside the motor. Here is a step by step to help fix the problem.
Pics came out a little blury but you will get the idea.
Pop off the plastic cover. Start from the top with your fingers and pull up. Remove the two gold phillips screws holding the switches.
Remover the phillips screws.
Pull the tab before the speaker out with some plyers.
Remove the four phillips speaker screws. You won't have to disconnect the speaker. The speaker magnet will catch on some metal.
Disconnect the window motor connector. Now work the window motor side through the hole.
Here are the three 8MM bolts holding the window motor in place. Before removing them put a screw driver in the window tract. Some say the window will fall it you don't. Mine did not but do it for safety precautions. Now put your arm through the speaker hole and use your other hand to remove the bolts. The window lift will fall right out now.
Bring it to a work bench.
Remove the cover with a screw driver. You can see here where it is clamped (screwdriver is pointing to the notch).
With the cover off you can see the mess of chewed plastic bushings. Clean all the bushing material up.
Remove the gear ring. This will be a pain. I used to small nails. Stick in the holes and pull out. You will figure you own way when you get there.
Now pull the steel gear out. Also pull the white plastic gear out. At this point you can just purchase an entire gear kit from Cardone. Part number is 42-91 and costs around $20 (easier way). There is no assembly required with this route. Also some auto parts stores sell just the bushings in the HELP section. Or you can go to the dealer and get plastic bushings like I'm installing here for $13.
Put the new plastic bushings in place. Now put the entire assembly back in the window lift housing. Put the gear ring back on and dab a little grease on it. Put the cover back on and reverse the window lift removal procedure. (Screwdriver tip pointing to the bushings.)
