1997 Volkswagen Cabriolet

Electrical problem
1997 Volkswagen Cabrio Front Wheel Drive Automatic

on my cabrio, the windows seem to have a mind of their own. While driving, it appears that the driver side front window motor failed. This somehow caused the battery to fail. I checked the wiring in the boot and all fuses/relays and they seem to be fine. However, the driver side window went down by itself (car off, parked on street) and now I can't get it to go up. Any recommendations? I'm at my wits end. I'd like to replace the motor, but don't know how. Can you help please?
