With the motor, or the structure? (I don't know what else to call it,
I'm thinking of all the metal and cables that actually hold the window
and guide its motion.)

I had to replace the driver's front on our '01. The motor was fine, but
one end of the cable came loose when the plastic clip broke. Of course
you can't just replace the piece of formed plastic, you have to replace
the whole frame and motor just for one stupid little piece of plastic. I
kept the old motor in case one of the others burns out.

That's only one replaced on a truck two years older, so it doesn't seem
"chronic" in our case (knock on wood).
