Will that window work from the driver's master control switch? If so, the switch on the left rear door is bad. HTH. -Jim

Ok, then it sounds like the motor for that window is bad. Just to be sure, check the wiring from the main body to the door. Remove the rubber boot from that door jam and inspect the wires carefully. Sometimes they wear and break through normal opening and closing of the door. If the wires are in good shape then I'd replace the window motor on that door. HTH. -Jim

I know, old question. Just want to add some info to others who might find this post by search. If you unplug the rear switch, you can't operate the window with the master control switch. In this case, it could be the motor or the switch. In Denmark it is illegal to have rear windows that can be opened in a 2 seat van, and that's how you turn them off, remove the switch and put a cover on.

I recently had the rear power windows broken out of my car ( hazards of working in Philly) I ordered the window and am ready to install. I removed the panel to the door. I cannot get the motor to move to install the new glass...any suggestions?
