1985 928S
Driver window works
Passenger side went down today and can't go back up.
Does anyone know how to remove switch on console so I can test it?
Any suggestions on troubleshooting?
Any assistance is appreciated!

You can access the switch by removing the carpeted piece that neighbors the center console. There are two Phillips head screws that hold it in place. They are kind of hid. One is just beneath the parcel tray. The other is difficult to get because the passenger seat is nearly too far in the way to reach. Depress the seat cushion as well as you can to access it.

To remove the switch from its position in the center console just pop the top off the switch cover and remove the two brass pieces inside the switch so that you don't lose them when you wiggle the remainder of the switch body through from the bottom of the console.

If you find that the switch is faulty, you can remove the door panel and put power directly to the window regulator to raise it until you get a new switch.

Thank you very much for the prompt reply!
I will work on this over the weekend and hope to get my window closed again.
