Re: window motor

Consider this... I learned from installing a used window reg in my car. 
the little plastic thingamajigy that holds the window mount to the
moving bracket wear a little with age and allows a small amount of
fore/aft "rocking" motion for the glass.  Since your motor runs the
window up fine from half way but not all the way down, maybe the window
is binding a little in the sliders.  Check for crud there, and examine
very closely the exact path the glass takes as it rises and drops,
paying attention to the bracket where it is attached also.  Maybe a
miniscule adjustment there will do something.
