I would start by checking the fuses, the manual should tell you which fuse corresponds to your window. Do your other windows work? If not it may be your comfort relay.

If the other windows are working and there is not a blown fuse then I would suspect that the motor is the problem. It "could" be the switch that operates the motor, but the motor is far more likely. As to a possible fix that does not involve replacing the motor Ive got no idea. I would hit up vines automotive in AL (assuming you are stateside) and see about getting a motor from them if you do not want to purchase a new one. They have always treated me well with good prices and quick shipping.
