    Passenger window doesn't go up (2001 coupe)

    I just realised this is the wrong topic. Can a mod delete this?

    I have a 2001 (mk4 i think) astra coupe 1.8 Bertone(must post pics once I can roll up the window and clean it). One morning I got up and the passenger window was all the way down and wouldn't go back up. 3 mechanics later and I have it rolled up after the guy shorts the switch into working. The motor seems to be fine so 2 replacement door switches from the scrapyard and im back to normal for a few weeks.

    As of a few days ago, its stuck again. Pressing down works fine but up does nothing. Meanwhile, the drivers side window is perfect. I'm guessing if I got another set of switches they'd work again for another while but it doesn't seem like they are whats really broken and finding replacements every few weeks ain't easy(or cheap) when you live way out in the Irish countryside.

    Any idea what's wrong with it, let alone how to fix it?
