It's usually never the motor, and I honestly wouldn't replace it if you don't have to because they are pretty tough compared to aftermarket. The job to replace it is around 30 mins, majority is taking the panel off and ripping back the plastic shield. There was a good how to on the forum.

Same thing worked on my 2006 E90. Just hitting down-up until it went up.

Good to know it's not the motor as I was thinking maybe it was seizing and I should replace it.

I'd be interested in a fix if anyone knows.
