Alternator: now this was a breakthrough!! Before the alternator was the dynamo-machine. A DC generator who wasn't that bad, but had a lot of glitches, the regulator system was complicated, it was large and in some cars highly unreliable. Then came the alternator. It was brilliantly constructed, highly dependable, half the size of the dynamo and very easy to repair. The output that it gave was much more stable and consistent thus allowing more appliances to be put in the car.
If your motor is functioning properly but the window is not responding, you may need to replace your regulator. Remove the bolts that attach the regulator to the glass. The regulator is the lift assembly that moves your window up and down. You will have to move the window up or down to align these bolts with a hole in the door interior. Using an extension on a ratchet, you will put a socket (usually 8 or 10 mm) through the hole and loosen the two bolts. Push the window all the way up. Use your hands to push the window up, and then either fasten it with tape or pull it out of the door altogether.
