3-Series: Drove my brother's car today to an appointment.

Customer Question
Drove my brother's car today...
Drove my brother's car today to an appointment. Rolled all the windows down because Im in Texas and it is 100 degrees. Rear drivers side window won't come back up. When I push the control it tries to lift it but only comes out a quarter of an inch and goes back.
