I'd think you'd have to get into the door. It would seem the motor drive is off the track.

As witeshark says get in to the door......remove the door card and sound proofing, you may find that the plastic clips are broken that hold the window to the runner, if the motor does not make any sound when you push the button it may be the motor or a broken wire which you can test by meter.
