The front windows don't roll down

Both front windows are stuck in the up position. The all 4 windows switch only operates the rear windows. The drivers side is fully engaged and is "outside" the soft top and the passenger side is dropped the 1/4" and won't do up into the soft top channel. I saw something about pulling fuse 57 after rolling down the windows, but the windows just do not work at all. Any ideas?

Frustrated Amateur mechanic here regretting my 3rd BMW purchase

I'd check fuses first then if still broken I'd take the door panels off, weather guard, and check the condition of the mechanism inside the door.

Checked the fuses

Nothing seemed to be off there and the mechanism doesn't show any obvious sign of malfunction

Was there anything going on before this happened, like electrical issues, slow windows, or did it just occur all of the sudden?

Check the switch. They're easy to take out. Clean them and see if that does anything.
