I haven't run into that problem before. How do you figure water got in there? High humidity, plugged drain holes, or do you submarine your car sometimes?

The cause of lack of mechanical drive to the window was due to a rotted splined shaft within the motor gearbox. I am attempting a repair with a view to buying another when it fails again (money is tight here...!)
The cause of the rot appears to be inadequate sealing between the gearbox cap and body. Not enough goo was provided by Mitsuba, in my opinion.
If my solution lasts more than 3 months then I'll put some pictures on here.
Seems like different regions have very different problems.
