It might just need resetting, try putting the window down let go of the switch then press & hold the button in the down position for around 10 to 15 seconds. Put the window up let go of switch then press & hold in the up position for 10 to 15 seconds

First check your interior light is coming on when you open the door, if it isn't your problem is most likely the door switch that controls the interior light & window drop

It will most likely be the door lock actuator, they are known for problems on the gen ones. They are around £65 off ebay & fiddly but not too hard to fit. Don't get a 2nd hand one or you may end up with the other problems they give. I will go out & check mine to double check that the lock/actuator is the part that works the window

Yes I can confirm the door lock/actuator works the window drop I just opened my door & the window dropped as normal I then closed the door latch with a screwdriver (door still open) & the window went back up
