I had the same problem exactly. However, I opted for a hack as I really do not like automatic windows (due to inability to open if no power) so I converted it to manual. Not very pretty, but works well.
My driver's side window has been struggling to go up for the past few weeks.
Totally dead in the down position today.
Called a Nissan dealer... new motor through them is $313.79.
Called Napa auto parts and they have one for $104 that I can pick up today.
The Napa part is a refurb, but inside the box it is stamped "New Unit" and the guy at Napa pulled it out of the box and also said it is new.
Apparently, if they don't have any refurbished ones, they give you new ones.
Ugh. It's not the motor. The wires are all frayed in the regulator. Through the dealer, the regulator costs $242.93. Of course they don't have it in stock. Said they can have one for me by Thursday. 5 days from now.
I called Napa (where I got the motor yesterday), and they can have it in store for me in 2 hours and costs $179.99. I am really starting to like these Napa guys in Pleasanton, CA. Guy I have worked with is named Terry.
Anyway, here are the part numbers for this stuff.
Nissan part number for the regulator is: 807217s000
Napa part number for the (refurbed) lift motor is: 49-20965
Napa part number for the regulator is: 749-524
So, if your window symptoms are that the motor seems to be strong, except for certain positions as it goes up and down, you may want to check for the availability of the regulator before you dig in.
Here you can see the wires are frayed in the regulator:
And this is what the full regulator assembly looks like. This is what you get when you order the "regulator". It is not just the plastic housing.

A few things to pay attention to:
If your regulator is fine, lube it while you have it out. I think my new regulator came pre-lubed.
The clip that holds the motor electrical connector to the door frame is a squeeze-to-release type mushroom head. My curved needle nose were perfect to get that clip released from the frame. You have to re-use that clip on your new connector. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to remove the clip from the connector itself. I had to dremel it out.
Here you can see the clip that you will re-use, as well as the squeeze pin that you have to release from the backside of the door frame.
Pay attention to the instructions on how to program the anti-pinch function. Otherwise, when you use the auto-close feature of the window, it will go all the way up, then drop back down about 2 inches.
Be sure to test that the window doesn't bind going up and down before you put the panel back on.
Thank you tchjts1...
This information is very useful, the same thing is happening to me, but also the small plastic pieces that hold the glass in to the regulator are broke, anyone know where I can find them.
