My sister-in-law had the same problem on her left rear window. I just cut the cable so I could get the window up and put wood shims beteewn the glass until she can get it repaired.

ya unfortunately it doesn't seem to have a time limit on when it happens. the window regulators in these cars are notorious for failing.
