90 4Runner Right Front Window - Motor? #898497

When right front window is lowered from either drivers switch or passengers, it will not easily raise when the switch is reversed (either). This has been going on for a long time. We try to be careful, but someone inadvertently forgets. Only way to get back up is to continue to engage switch, interminably. Last night when it happened, I believe I proved that it may be the motor is not operating well in reverse and it continues to get worse, it seems. I gently jammed switch in up position and pushed / pulled up on the window. I was able to get it raised to the full up position. Is it reasonable to infer that the motor is not working well in reverse? Brushes, etc. Would you recommend that buy a replacement motor? Easy to find? Easy to do? Thanks for help.

Not sure about your gen, but on mine, the rubber window seals in the tracks are worn out. This causes the windows to rapidly descend, but I have to operate them a certain way on the return trip up (up.... down a bit, up... down a bit, up... down a bit, etc).

I will be replacing these as soon as I return to the US...
