In the instructions I followed it said to remove the motor assembly by removing the 3 bolts to gain access to the plastic block. Whin I did this the front half of the motor only came off and the cable came off the spool. I had to rewind and re-install the spool which was a bitch. Removing the motor was not necessary. Hopefully this has not caused the window stopping problem. I would appreciate any suggestions.

This probably doesn't help much, but I just replaced the drivedog on my 2004 rear left side. When finished, my window did the same thing. It would go up to the top and then retract down an inch or two. A few times all the way down and then up resolved the problem. On guessing it had to relearn the parameters.
