HELP! My windows working fine day before going to window tint and now rear driver side window stuck in down position and I live in Florida. Is there a manual crank to put window up? I see a plastic cap giving access to window compartment. Is there a special tool to crank it up manually?

Yup, should be. There'a white-ish nylon plastic plug thingy in the tool kit. That fits in the window actuator after you remove the trim cap, and you use the spark plug wrench and screwdriver from the tool kit to turn it.

Good luck. Mine stuck down and I never could get it to roll back up. I ended up disconnecting the mechanism and wedged the window in the up position.

Found the tool you described inserted it and tapped on it a few times and then hit the switch. Went right up. Thank you so much!
