Re: rear passenger window does not go up or down
The window regulator (the track part) probably has failed. The motor and regulator might come together. It is easy to replace. Hardest part is getting the door panel off, which you've already done. Just unbolt glass from reg, slide up out of the way, tape glass up so it doesn't fall on your hands while your working with the reg. Unbolt reg from door and tilt down to remove from door. There should be an opening in the door to bring it out or you may have to remove a speaker. Just be careful working with the glass.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

if the window is off track the regulator is probably bad. to remove the door panel should be a couple of screws by the inside pull handle and possibly one by the door handle itself also check the bottom of the door for any then just pull it off and lift up to clear latches and remove plastic film to get to inside of the door
It's a different van than mine but i have the same issue. The motor in mine went bad. For the longest time it took forever for the window to go up and then one day it wouldn't. Why did it go down easy you say?? The weight of the window helps bring it down with a weak motor. You may also have come off track. To put it back on its track involves you removing the inside door panel. This also has to happen to have the motor replaced.
i CAREFULLY REMOVED THE PANEL, THE SPEAKER, TAKING PHOTOS ALONG THE WAY (INCLUDING PHOTOS INSIDE THE DOOR WHERE I COULD NOT SEE), AND EVENTUALLY REMOVED THE TRACK WITH THE MOTOR AND CABLE. i FOUND THE PLASTIC MOUNT FOR THE UPPER CABLE BROKEN. AFTER MUCH STUDYING I FOUND THE CABLE SNAGGED ON THE REEL. I CLEARED THE SNAG AND LUBED THE REEL. I DRILLED A HOLE TO ACCEPT THE CABLE END AT ABOUT THE RIGHT DISTANCE , INSERTED A SCREW AND EPOXIED THE SCREW AND END IN POSITION, I HUNG THE ASSEMBLY ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE DOOR , PLUGGED THE SWITCH IN AND TURNED THE CAR ON -- THE TRACK WORKED PERFECT. I REPLACED ALL COMPONENTS, ATTACHED THE WINDOW, REPLACED THE PLASTIC REATTACHED THE LINKAGES TO THE LOCK AND DOOR OPENER. WORKS GREAT.
SAVED SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THE COST OF A COUPLE OF HOURS AND A
SCREW AND JB WELD EPOXY.MEMBRANE, REINSTALLEED THE SPEAKER,
I had the same issue with the passenger side rear window. I took the panel off (one screw under the window switch and one screw located behind the door handle. There is a small black cover over the screw.) I then took the motor off of the door and track system. After the track was off, I plugged the motor back into the wiring harness and tried the switch. Mine actually worked and the gear spun, if not, it will be a pricey window motor about $150-$250 depending on where you get it. Good luck! Sean
