Did it make a crunching sound when it first broke? Can you hear the window motor run when you activate the switch? You need a new window regulator. You'll have to buy the part and then take the door apart to replace it or take it to the stealership and have them do it for three times as much. The part should cost you about $100 plus shipping.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Put some silicone spray or dry lube in the window frame where the glass runs and this will free up the window and take the load off the motor.
All "Henry"window winder switches are a problem they don't last lone at all. I have replaced my Ford winder switches about every 18months to 2 years. They are a money maker for Ford Motor Coy
first open ur door board n get the window winder machine and chek for any damage and if u find any issue with the winder machine try and fix it up i.e if the cable is broken u will probably have to find a specialist to fix it but the best solution is to get a new window winder regulator
It wont be pretty but examine other rear door and be familiar with retaining fixings,ie door grab handle , window winder , and any screw fixings .
Remove what you can and maybe the rear seat also (sorry) The window winder removal is easier than you think ! It's held on by a horse shoe shaped spring clip, remove with a simple shoe lace or narrow piece of cloth pulled in the opposite direction of the horse shoe clip.(don't loose) This is about as much as I can help you , after this it's a tug and pull (against snap fixxings) upward lifting motion of the panel. Good Luck
Unplug the wires then unscrew the bolts which secure the window to the winder push the window into place and put something underneath it to keep it up be sure to unplug it as if the button for moving the window up and down starts working again it will either damage itself or move whatever you put to secure the window
mmmm from what i can recall 2 screws in arm rest (two small holes underneath arm rest hides the screws)take these out also one in door handle trim behind handle, And the window winder if you look close in the gap between window winder and door trim you should be able to see a curbed metal pin this holds winder in place so to remove it get a knife ( thin blade will fit in between winder and trim) and push on the end bit of the metal pin and it should spring off and then door handle can be removed.
After this run your hands around door trim gently pulling around all edges ect this will pull door trim away from supports
Remove plastic studs from door closer. Unscrew three retaining screws. remove grab.
Unhook window winder retaining clip. Best done with small long-nose pliers. window winder retaining clip located inside plastic winder handle section. Will need to prise away winder handle from door slightly to expose clip. locate and gently pull clip from winder shaft.
unscrew door opener / lock assembly retaining screw.
gently prise lower trim retaining press studs from door. remove lower trim.
gently , from rear of door, pull upper trim from door and similtaniously prise upper trim press studs from door.
gently giggle door opener / lock assembly through upper trim . remove trim
gently with flat blade, peel off plastic dust sheeting.
access to inside off door is now possible.
Reassembly reverse of above
the door inside panel is screwed on in 3 or 4 places. look on the underside of the panel for a screw or two, and look for a screw cover underneath where the inner door handle is. pop the window switch assembly out of the door gently and unplug the wiring harness from it. it is possible to repair the window winder assembly inside the door, but its too hard a process for me to explain. if u can get the door panel off, but cant figgure out how to repair the winder assembly, then buy a new window winder assembly for around $120, to replace and not repair is the standard practice anyway, cause the winders are a pain to repair, and the repair is usually only temporary, they are technically non repairable, the repair is more like a mcguyver move.
you need to replace the window winder unit. not the electronic switch but the motor/pully system which rolls the window up and down. if u can get the door panel off, you can replace it yourself for around $120, or you can macgyver a fix, without bying new parts. look for a loose cable on the winder unit, thats what will tell u that the winder unit is bad.
you have to rebuild (which can be ghetto rigged, but never is reccomended) or replace the window winder units. they can be removed, find the rail which those loose cables came from and remove it, it should be an assembly with the winder motor attached. be sure to remove the bolt that attach to the window mount also. if you can locate the place where the end of the cable is supposed to mount (on a little slider thing) and make a new mount for the end of the cable, then take apart the winder motor spool, and re wind the cable inside the spool, then put it back together, you have ghetto rigged yopur winder. if you cant do all that, you will have to replace the whole unit at a cost of around $120.
