Vert Rear Quarter Window Problem

Hello Everyone, I posted this in the general section without reply so I will try here.

Problem : Rear passenger side window stuck at lowered position. Unable to roll back up.

Possible problems: Regulator, Motor, Switch, GM5?

Symptoms: Click noise when switch is pressed up or down. When pressed down, there's also a light knock noise- almost like the motor is attempting to push it down some more but it's already bottomed out.

Earlier signs of problem: When I was inspecting the car for purchase, I put the top down then back up. When it was all the way up, all the windows closed except the rear passenger side window, it was half way up. I tried to roll it back up but nothing happened so I rolled it down 3 inches then back up and it rolled back up.

Solution? Anyone ever had this problem with their convertible. I searched and don't see many convertible with the rear side windows having problems.

Thanks for the help!

Edit: After sitting 2 days in the garage, I attempted to close it and after 5 tries, the window rolled up. ..
