I'd guess the cable on the window regulator assembly is jammed. I guess you can grab the window and jiggle and pull it upwards while someone pushes the up button although I really don't think that's going to help, but anything is worth a try.

Yea we tried that and nothing happened.. but thanks :-) im going to check into the.. window regulator?

Do we have to take the door panel apart..could it be a broken clip stuck or something..idk

It's called the window regulator assembly and there are numerous videos on Youtube to give you a general idea. You could take the door panel off and look inside but my guess is the motor assembly is in the front and the pulley and stuck cable is in the back...... While I had my regulator assembly on order, I pushed the window all the way up and locked it into place with Vise Grips.... On my Crown Victoria (Ford) I had to take the inside panel off, then drill out all the factory rivets that held the assembly to the inside of the door and the rivets that held the window to the rail. I was lucky that I didn't have to pull the window all of the way out of the car to get the old assembly out and the new one in.

It's very similar to the one on the Ford http://www.amazon.com/Dorman-741-159-Passenger-Window-Regulator/dp/B004SR8BT8

I had the same issue with right rear door on 1998 Acura. Just go to the video of how to replace the window regulator ( motor ). Part cost 159.00 and was not that difficult to install, just follow instruction on YouTube video.
