I think a part broke on my 2002 Mini Cooper's window lift mechan.
I think that a part may have broken on my 2002 Mini Cooper's drivers door window lift mechanism. The motor works and the window will lower but it won't raise. If I lower the window, I have to lift it up by hand to close it.
I have good tools, but is there a diagram out there that I can print out of the window mechanism?

there is most likely a button sensor that is stuck - if you don't open the door much - that will do it - try spraying WD40 on the door components along the door edge where the latch is - also try wd40 on the latch inside the door -- open and close it say 35 times and after 10 or so it should work - but still keep on til 35 - then do that 10 times a month -
With ignition switch on and engine off activate a window switch... listen for a clicking noise. if there is no noise then start checking fuses and relays. The fuse panel in on the left of the drivers legs. open it up it is well marked and in it you will find a handy fuse puller and spare fuses if they're needed. If you hear the clicking sound then try the Mini cooper Thump. Apply it to the doors midway between the large and small speakers (It may take two or three solid thumps) re-apply as needed
Hit the door panel just above the lower door speaker. If possible remove the door panel trim to expose the door metal. This must be a firm blow and is better with a rubber mallet.
This works by moving the motor armature slightly away from the dead spot it creates when it moves up and down slightly when opening/closing the door. Best way to avoid this is to wind the window up and down fully every once in a while - excercise the motor.
