Either the motor is bad or almost there, the switch is bad [contacts] or the regulator is binding.

Someone with a 1st gen will have to chime in on whether you can jumper the switch plug to test that out. Check that first as it will eliminate the next two.

If the motor is bad, have to R&R that

Binding regulator can be cleaned/lubed up if it's not worn out.
