I have a 2003 cadillac CTS and the rear passenger window will not go up. I heard it pop a while ago and haven't used it since, but forgot about it tonight and put it down and now it will not go back up. When I hit the switch, I can hear it engage but the window will not go up.

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like the window regulator broke can you help the window up with your hand while running the window up?

I've tried to put the window up manually while pressing the up button but it still won't budge at all. When I hold the window and try to put it down it makes a grinding sound and then it will make the same sound going back up until it gets the the point of the window and it stops.
