How do I close windows without power?

Ok, so we pulled the motor and harness out of the 318i a few weeks ago, in preperation of the M conversion. Accidentally left the front windows down. Is there a way to roll the windows back up manually, similar to how you can close the sunroof manually with a torx driver? Or can I disconnect the window motors and apply power to a certain lead to get them to go up? Help! My car is filling up with Las Vegas dust. And yes, I know, get a car cover...

Send a message via MSN to 325isBaby
remove the door panel and remove the window motor, then you will be able to manually run the window up.
