Had the same problem today, haven't fixed the problem but did manage to get the window wound up.
After downloading various wiring diagrams I realised that by wiring pin 1 (black and red wire (2 of)) to positive and Pin 2 (Yellow and Blue wires (2 of) to negative the window will wind up.
How you achieve this will depend on what tools and equipment you have to hand.
In my case (I have a right-hand drive 1997 cabrio) I wired a cigarette lighter connector to 2 spade connectors. The middle of the cigarette lighter connector is usually positive and the outside rim contact is usually negative.
I removed and disconnected the driver side door handle switches and inserted the appropriate spades into the appropriate 2 spade connectors for the driver's side window switch, they are close together (one above the other) and on the right as you look at them but you can make sure by checking the wiring colours as left hand drive is probably the opposite.
Once I had inserted the spades and checked a couple of times the polarity was correct I plugged in the cigarette lighter connector and the window wound up no problem. This way you don't have to switch on the ignition circuit and the cigarette lighter connector usually has a fuse to protect against a short in the motor or motor wiring.
