    Electric window ground to a halt

    Well, on one of those frosty mornings my drivers side window packed in on my 2003 8P. Went to open it, and it tried to work against the ice and cut out. I got it to go down a bit giving it a helping hand but it wasn't keen to move. So tried to put it back up, and got a few horrible grinding noises, I was thinking it was gonna get stuck, or break sending the glass down into the door (!), but I got it up (excuse the pun). Now it's stuck there, when I push the button the motor seems to make a little effort but nothing moves.

    So I guess I'll be pulling the door panel off soon, is it easy enough? What broken bits should I be expecting?

    Probably your window motor gave up. Happened to me last winter in a very similar scenario. Might have to replace it.
