Unhappy windows again!

Hi my drivers door window suddenly stopped working while closed. I've read the posts about thumping it & holding the switches up/down to reset them etc with no success. However when I removed the switch bank it suddenly started working but after a couple of runs up & down it stuck down. There's a small click from behind the dash which I assume is the relay but nothing from the motor. I'm suspecting there's either a motor or sensor fault, or maybe a loose/broken wire. I'm now in catch 22 though - to go any further I need the motor/regulator out but can't do this with the window down. Is there any way to manually get the window back up or is there a way with the window down or has anyone any other suggestions. TIA Neil

turned out the motor had been replaced. The new motor had been connected in with badly crimped bullet connectors
