Question about 2004 Nissan Titan
Removing the door panel is usually an intuitive process for those used to searching for hidden screws and fixings. A repair manual will be found very useful for most folk. Often some plastic studs will need replacing and sometimes minor repairs will be needed to the inside of the panel after removal. Familiarity and a selection of dedicated tools help prevent this.
Behind the door panel there is the door film which is a damp-proof membrane and is usually firmly glued to the door. This should be replaced if damaged (or repaired) though can usually be removed with patience.
Once the door panel is removed you could encounter an airbag(s), a loudspeaker(s) and a certain amount of electrical wiring. It is usually necessary to move as much as possible in order to view the door internals and window mechanism.
The window mechanism might be a cable type but equally could be a rack and pinion type or a type with one or more levers. Some of the cable types are very complex and some of the other types need careful adjustment after fitting. The glass could be retained to the regulator in a variety of ways.
Good visibility inside the door cavity is difficult so good illumination from a suitable inspection light is a must, preferably in the gloom of a garage or workshop to avoid dark shadows. A non-chattering and obliging assistant is almost a necessity.
When reassembling it is wise to ensure all moving parts are adequately lubricated with appropriate lubricants, depending on the type of regulator.

Get a 18V drill with phillips screw extention and start buzzing the screws in the armrest and under out...the glass could be anywhere so wear gloves.

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!
Most likely your window regulator cable broke. That is why the glass can not be controlled. You will need to remove it and inspect it to verify.
