The part is called a window regulator, they are referred to by this name in all the parts houses and if you ask for a left front or drivers door window regulator, you are certain to get the correct item.

The inspection inside the door should reveal what part is broken, has this been done? The window regulator on a 2001 Lexus GS 430 is the thing that looks like a jack. The one that looks like a pulley may not be for the front door, it might be for another car altogether.
