Window lift motor replacement

It appears driver side motor it bad. It stopped in the window full down position. I have removed all panels to gain access and plugged replacement motor into the harness and it works fine. I can't manually get the window to go up so I can get access to old motor to remove it. Is there something I'm missing to move the window?

Thanks

Sometimes they act like a starter, you can hold the switch with key on and tap the motor and see if it will jar it enougth to work again. I've seen a Ford mechanic do it by hitting on the door panel and get the motor to go up again. If not, you have to take the window loose from the regulator, regulator loose from the door, something like that, good luck

A gentle tap with rubber mallet fixed it right up. Thanks.

It'll stick again, might as well change it out next time you're bored.
