Default Drivers side window stopped working on wife's 2006

My first thought was fuse but when i tested all the others worked. So i begin testing the switch and power was there, and switch was throwing power to proper terminals. I then removed the door panel to get to the window motor.

I tested at the harness connector and had power there. I then thought about replacing the window motor but upon closer inspection, the harness going into the motor had a stress break inside the rubber connector.

Carefully cutting away the rubber i was able to solder and shrink wrap new wire and everything works now. The motor moves up and down with the window and as a result, the wires are constantly bending where it clips on the harness connector that is snapped onto the door.

Just a FYI if yours quit working, check the wires closely before wasting money on a new window motor that wasnt needed.
