1996 Acura RL: mirage..side rear..switch for the right rear window

Resolved Question:

I have 1996 Acura RL with milage of 65000mi. I bought it new. Right side rear window does not function.
The switch for the right rear window only does not work. Other 3 windows are ok. The right side rear window slides down by itself, so that I have to raise it by my hands. I am electrically and mechanically handyman.
Would you give me a hint to how can I start for repair. Is there any repair manual I can down load?
Thank you for your assistance.

Hello. Yes, this sounds like a bad window regulator. I just replaced one a few weeks ago, or the mounting tabs on the bottom of the glass are broken off.
