About the same odds as the passenger door window not working on my car, and my friend'* window not working the next day (which happened). Remove the 3 screws holding them in...leave the wiring connected, and operate it from the switch.

I removed the screws and nothing on either motor. I found this online how to test window motors by hooking a meter up to the two wires to the motor and moving the switch and if you get anything less then 11 volts the motor is bad. I killed my battery and have a charger on it now and I will do this test. thnks Weird your friends motor died the next day maybe you did the ole switheroooo on him. LOL

I tested the voltage in the windows and they were both at 13.5 volts. I took a hammer and tapped the motor on the driver side and it started working and the same with the passenger side. How tight should I retighten the three bolts. Is it good to leave them just snug loose or tight? As far as lubing the regulator should I just lube the wire and work the window up and down? Thanks for all the help!

Great! Virtually every failure of the front windows has been solved by just removing the motor and putting it back in. They either bind up mechanically, or crud builds up on the commutator from it stopping in the same place.

Just snug the 3 screws up good, lube the slide where ever you can get to it, and the cable, then yes...run the windows up and down a few times.
