Rear windows not lowering

My 2011 Vert has been in the shop for two weeks now getting the rear windows fixed. They would not lower by the toggle switch but I could get them down by lowering the convertible top. Dealer thought he had it fixed but one side keeps going out. They odered the part(s) but I was told they didn't get the right part then the right part had a defect so they are reordering. Starting to feel like they are in uncharted territory, any one else have this issue? what was the fix?

My guess would be a wire short, if switch keeps going out, or a bad window motor.

Make sure when they replaced your top, they did not get the moulding above the rear window messed up or "crimped". When mine was done, same thing, window wouldn't go down, BUT it was because it was misaligned in the channel and "pinched". If you "raise" the top, the moulding/channel pulls away from the top allowing the window to go down. I know this sounds simple, but I too thought my window switch/motor was faulty when it was actually the pinched window.

This might be the issue it seems like I could hear it trying to move but then it gave up. I'll run it by the dealer. It may have been a coincidence but I had a roof leak and the day the windows stopped working there was heavy condensation inside the car making me think it was a short of some kind.
