DIY Window Motor

I recently purchased a 2003 Mini from a private owner. After purchasing the Mini I went to dealer to get the service seeing that the drivers side window motor was said to be dying. Well a couple days after that it died. Does anyone know how hard it is to change the motor for the drivers side window?

Hitting the door card above the speaker might start it working again.

+1, I had to do this today as my window stopped working. Hit the door card about 3" up from your main speaker as that's where the motor is located. If it works then you've saved yourself some cash but if not then you'll need to have it changed
