help putting up a stuck power window on a 87' 325

all power windows don't work, bought it like that.. the drivers side window is stuck down, i already took off the door trim panel. can anyone please help me manually put the window up for now?
- i need to put it up for now because of excessive rain.. in the soon future i just wanna convert it to a manual regulator

well...I'm sure you tried this but here goes my only bit of info....

is the window kill switch on or off?

My windows didn't work for a day, so I wiggled the switch (it's more of a button...) and they work fine now....

my switch looks like this:

(I believe it's the fuse?..not sure though)

Swap out your switch with the passenger side switch to test for now. Do you have the scissor or the snake style regulator?

would that do anything..? all the windows don't work.. it's not just the driver's side window. the drivers side window is the only one thats rolled down though. if that will help, i will deff. try it in the morning.

also, im pretty sure it's the snake style

If all don't work then check your fuses.
