Power window motor

The passenger window on my 1980 works reluctantly, and the driver's side doesn't work at all. There is power to the motor leads when the switch is toggled, but no response. Is it possible to remove the motor without taking out the whole mechanism? I thought I'd ask before undoing stuff.

Try lubing the motor, cables and pullies before disassembly. My system hardly worked; cleaning and lubrication without any disassembly made it all new again. I used penetrating oil on the motor bushings, and white grease on the cables and pullies.

The window is quite loose in the channels: in fact, that's the next thing to tackle after I get the motor working. But it is not binding at all, and if the motor were working, the window would move. The motor just doesn't respond. If I can't get it out without removing the whole gubbins, I'll try to free it up by turning it with my fingers on the gear at the end of the shaft, but that's a painful process, and not likely to succeed.
