If it goes one direction but not the other it's more likely the switch or the wiring between switch and motor.

Get a manual if you don't have one already, then get a used one from a junkyard. I had the same thing on a 2000 zx3. The window drive is shot, either the guides or the motor. For about $90 and 45 minutes time you will be back in business. It is'nt a hard fix at all, the system is modular and all connectors, it just takes time to do carefully so you don't lose any screws from the door panel.

Mine was the motor. I had the same symptoms you do it would go down just fine but, would go up really slow or not at all. The motor was too weak to push the glass back up but the weight of the glass helped it when going down. I would just replace the motor and mechanism and forget about it. If you just replace the motor it would prob work but, it could just break the mechanism in a week and your back to square one.

Buy ford parts! The regulator takes about 30min. U need torx bits& 8or 10mm to get the door panel off carefully peel off the sounddeadner then 2 10mm bolts hold the glass and 4 that holds the regulator to the door. Take ur time its pretty straightforward

I suggest you get the power window motor, then take the door apart. If it did come off the track, then the bolt for it will be in the bottom of the door somewhere. You can probably hear it bouncing around when you close the door. If not, then you'll probably find that a new PW motor will fix the problem. If you have any questions about how it should look- then remove the other side's door panel to give you clues of how it should look when complete.

I had one of my rear doors do this. I purchased a motor/regulator unit from ebay, probably the easier way to go. It's been a couple years with no problems. Cost was about $45, IIRC.
