Yup. Does that 1 have motor as integral part of assembly? What's happening is the overheat sensor is shot. You dissasemble and bridge sensor and that will make it work again.

I HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK WITH DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS---FORD AND MERCURY

MAINLY CLEANING THE BRUSH SURFACE ON THE ARMATURE, WITH FINE SANDPAPER AND LUBRICATING THE SHAFTS AND "GEAR BOXES" IF YOU WILL

ON THE FORD STUFF A COMMON FAILURE IS 3 NYLON "CLUTCH PELLETS", AGAIN, IF YOU WILL, IN THE GEAR BOX, REPLACING THEM WITH BALL BEARINGS IS A PERFECT FIX! (NORMALLY THAT SYMPTOM IS THE MOTORS RUNS AND THE WINDOW SLIGHTLY BOUNCES, BUT WILL NOT MOVE

GOOD LUCK

Yah that's it. You bent some tabs and pulled plastic end out. Look at the brush leads more carefully. You will see a brass double layer strip like sandwich on 1 of the brush leads in the plastic end cover. You have to connect the layers together I soldered mine if I recall.
