Most often, the motor is fine - the suspects would be a bad upper switch, broken wire along the trunk hinge, or a bad lower switch. Unplug the upper switch and test it with an ohm meter for continuity when yo manually activate the switch.

I pulled the trunk motor and pulled it apart. And greased it ,re-installed armature and slid down through brushes and it worked like a charm. Sometimes the trunk gets slamed down and it jolts the motor. It will be frozen and needs to be eased. This will also happen in the winter when ice forms on trunk lid assembly. GOOD LUCK

Yes. You can take it apart, manually screw down the catch and don't power it again.
