if window will not go up ckeck window motor to see if it will go down if it goes down but not up the problem is in the drivers door master switch

On a 2001 Safari van. You do not have to remove the whole door panel.

Remove the handle (two torx head screws) and remove a screw by the 2"speaker on the right (phillips head). The difficult part is inserting the screws, holding the motor, from the back. I used a very fine thread that i passed through the motor and motor bracket. I pulled the screw through the hole. Took a long time. To prove the motor or the switch. Use a volt meter and see if there is voltage present at the motor. If there is and the motor wont turn. Replace it. .
