    If part of the window is sticking up out of the door you can grab it at the part near the rear of the door and pull it up whilst operating the window switch.

    You may have to do the same from the front end depending on which clip has broken.

    have you had any trouble like the window loosing its memory?
    and going up say half way and stopping before it got stuck?
