Power Window Problems

I did a search and I just want to confirm. I ordered a Torque Pin replacement kit with the gear for about $20. The problem I have is the Passenger Window is slipping and sometimes needs help manually to get it up. The rear window is not moving now at all but the motor is turning. From what I have read this is a common problem and the torque pins need to be replaced.

Did I order the right thing? Are there any things I need to know before hand that will save me some hassle once I attack the problem? The reat window is stuck and will not close all the way, so I need to get that one done soon.

Hi guys, I've read through all the different tailgate window tutorials but can't find what I do if the window is stuck in the 3/4 closed position. I need to replace the motor I guess. I tried the direct hookup to a 12 volt source and the motor didn't even hum. My problem is I can't get the glass down so I can open the tailgate. I've tried pulling it up but it'll only budge about 1/4". Pushing down and it only goes a 1/4" also. I've already got another motor assembly, just need to get the glass down so I can open the tailgate. Any help is appreciated.
Finally got the window to a position that I could reach up and under and get the motor out. Turns out the motor was ok but the plastic gear had shattered along with the torque pins. Got all that back together with new guts. Now I've got to see what's wrong with that switch that tells it the tailgate is closed, it is sticking some. Plus the window won't go all the way up, likes about an inch to be fully closed. I need to change out all the weatherstripping too. But at least I can open the tailgate now. Thanks for all the help here. I'm sure I'm going to have more questions!!
