The nylon gear for the worm drive is worn out, you'll need another motor assembly.

About 30 min depending on how proficient you are. If it's your first window job, just take your time. And be very carefull of the door handle trim, it can be a pain sometimes.

I can't remember how much it cost to get a motor on Ebay, but I don't remember it being prohibitively expensive... and a tool I definitely wish I had... either a REALLY stubby screwdriver, or the one that has two ends that are bent 90 degrees away from each other.
