Default Passenger Window problem

OK, 2008 Saturn XR, Passenger window (power windows) stops working intermittently; either up or down, and will not respond to driver's switch or passenger switch. I can hear the switch clicking, but no movement. Then a day or two later it starts working again just fine. The other day I pulled the inner panel off, pulled the switch box apart, and the contacts look fine. Im thinking window motor, but I really don't want to go there. How hard is it to replace the window motor? Thanks.

While it may appear to you a window motor issue, how do you know if wiring isn't the problem? All wiring goes thru a hole in the door next to the hinges. Continually flexing is part of design but occasionally wire damage occurs. Whether visibly or not, this may be one consideration of intermittent power. Can you measure voltage applied to the window motor while pressing either up or down switch, door closed, open, and during opening/closing to see if power is interrupted? It may be wiser to rule out a wiring issue before concluding a window motor failure. You can also apply 12v directly to the motor to test it with direct power to see if the motor runs intermittently.

fdryer; yeah, I think that's it; after more fiddling with it, i realized just opening the door, and sometimes wiggleing the wire bundle between the body and the door made it work. Thanks, I'll keep updating.
