Default 2004 Window Regulator - track or motor?

Hey Max Fans! This is my first post, looking for some help...

My main questions are below but here's the full story. About a year and a half ago I had a little side swipe, medium damage to the passenger front door. Was able to pop out the dents with an industrial suction cup, window was still operational and all was well, minus a bit of a wrinkle from the door shell stretching.

A few weeks ago the front passenger window stopped going all the way up on auto-up and progressed to sluggishly going up when manually pressing it up. Disassembled everything. I did notice a gap (1/4 to 1/2" between the inside door shell and horizontal door supports). Didn't look like it would effect the clearance of the window but gave it a pounding to close the gap. Supports were pretty sturdy so just ended up filling the gaps with some caulk to reduce the flex of the stretched door shell. After removing the window, the motor operated up and down fine. Put some silicone on the window regulator tracks and replaced hoping it would solve the problem. When putting the regulator back in, I did notice one of the bolts didn't want to align perfectly to the holes on the inside cover but gave it some pressure to get thru. After re-installing the window, the window wouldn't move up at all unless I helped pull or push it, going down was fine.

So main questions are: Could it just be the tracks are bent? Was thinking of just ordering the regulator, $50. After seeing how the lines run thru the motor, how easy is it transferring the old motor onto a new regulator? Or could the motor just be weak? It doesn't slip or grind with the window installed, just stops when trying to go up. It still operates smoothly up and down without the window installed...?
Thanks for your input!

Welcome Aboard.
In order to help you, it would be helpful if you posted a pic of the door....How extensive is the damage. You might need to replace the door if the damage is too extensive or you will end up burning out regulators because if the increased resistance the track places on the window.
