    If it still has the cable and transmission then just put the cable in your drill and zip the window on down... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Okay so
    1) Climb yer tail back there and take off the access panel
    2) You should see a cable that screws onto the window motor, looks just like a speedo cable, in fact it works like one.
    3) Unscrew from motor and place the metal part that actually turns inside the cable into your drill chuck.
    4) Using the drill the window should come down..
