    Remove the panel, inside you'll find a cable like a speedo cable that goes from the motor to the regulator. Unscrew the cable from the and chuck the end of the cable in a cordless drill. Try reverse first (I can't remember which direction makes it go or down...) and go slow. If it seems tight try the other direction. It will go down using the drill, I did that for quite a while...
