My daughter was pretty perceptive about how she knew it was an electrical fault. I met her at her place, and we checked that the left rear window worked (on same fuse as driver window). She could hear the motor engage/stop in down direction, so apparent power to the motor there, and NO sound when switch was activated "up". So the switch as the easiest place to start.
The switch came apart pretty well - the driver window "up" side had a lot of carbon and had partly melted the little plastic spring-loaded pivot on that "up" side of the switch. I swapped that with the "unused" side pivot for the "On/Off" switch that has only one contact to work (so the damaged pivot is on the unused side). Cleaned and re-lubed with silicone dielectric grease, then reassembled. I viewed Trionic7's You Tube, and it was helpful.
Thanks for responding. Sure was glad this was not a bad motor !
