Sounds like a missing tooth or stripped gear on the motor or moon gear on the regulator, the door will have to be taken apart and the regulator or motor replaced. If you can grab the top of the glass with your fingers GENTLY pull up while pressing the switch. it may catch another tooth and go up. (**Do not use pliers or any other tool to grab the glass**)

Volvo v40 (estate) same as s40 1997 2 litre

This sounds to me like you may have a bad master switch. Everything with the windows goes back to the master switch before it will work.

I have a 2004 volvo v40. When i wash the windscreen the headlight wiper on the drivers side parkes in the upright position. Whats wrong.

Probably the wiper motor needs some maintenance. The grooves that hold the wiper arm may be worn, but usually it is the motor itself which needs new brushes or something.

Not expensive. Probably cheaper to buy a new one than try to repair the old one which may then work another few months.

Drivers electric window stuck in down position

actually you have thought of all but the prob. The track has jumped, making the motor not move the window. Sometimes you can gently slide the window up by hand and then the motor will catch the track and finish rolling the window up
