Need Help with Window

I put my rear window down today and it won't go back up. I can hear the mechanism like its turning and it wants to go up but it won't. Is it off track or is it the regulator? Anyone in NJ who can help please

the whole window is on the regulator so yes,you can pull it up and do your install. make sure someone holds it though...from my experience,I bought the regulator and the motor,and now it works flawlessly. I just changed the whole damn thing

I took the door apart and found that part of the regulator had broken. I can hear the motor running so I just need the regulator correct? Some repair places are telling me to replace the motor and regulator? Should I do both? I wish someone in NJ would respond to me. I'll buy the part and pay you to install it.

search for window regulator I believe by Tommie not sure about the spelling. I replaced the driver, passenger and rear passenger, also the motor 2x on driver side for the last 4 years.
