    Are the window motors prone to going out on the T100's more than other Toyota's?
    Today on my 97 T100 I put the drivers window down and it wouldn't go back up, after a few minutes it would go up only about an inch then I would have to wait a few more minutes and it would go up about an inch again and stop. This was the routine until I got it to the top. Has anyone had this happen to them, does it sound like the switch or motor, thanks for any advice before I take the door apart to trouble shoot it.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    Your glass isn't binding up on the track is it?

    If not the motor I'm bet is going out on you. On some cases it's better to replace the assembly

    Sounds like the motor. I assume that it goes down just fine, which means its probably not the switch. And I'm assuming that when it does go up an inch at a time its very slow or jumps up then slows to nothing.

    Let me get you the Chilton Manual for this.

    See attached. Looks pretty straight forward.

    Let me know if there's anything else you need.

    Thanks guys, Nor7, it did go up a lot slower when I got it to raise an inch or so at a time. I went up to the shop and tried it again. This time it worked fine about five times then it wouldn't go up at all so I waited a few minutes and it went up about half way and stopped, after a few minutes wait it would go all the way up.
    Thanks for the files.
    Should I replace the motor/regulator assembly or just the motor? There is no binding on going up or down or no 'funny' noises either. I'm thinking maybe just the motor.

    I'd say just the motor. But I think you might have to get the regulator out to get the motor out as well. Not 100% sure, just put a spot of grease on the regulator as long as you're in there.

    Also, make sure all nuts and bolts are tight when you're buttoning it back up. Otherwise one might back out and start catching on things, happened in my Tacoma, had to take the door back off.
