Right Power Front Window Problem

Today I lowered my right front window from the driver's side master power window switch. The master switch will not close the window, the three others operate normally from the master switch. It will lower but not close. Fortunately the individual switch on the right front passenger door will lower as well as close the window normally. This tells me I am not dealing with a window motor, relay, or fuse issue. I searched this forum as well as internet, and YouTube. Most people seemed to have issue with the front driver's side window not working properly. That makes sense as the driver's window as well as door is more used. I am down to either the master power window switch is faulty, or a wire from the door into the area under the dash is broken or faulty. Does the fact that it will open, but not close mean anything? Each button on the master switch will elicit a clunk, except for the right front passenger window, no clunk. I read where the switches can go bad due to corrosion, rain, snow, spills, etc. Looking at the design of the wiring harness also could mean a broken wire. Appreciate any input, thoughts, advice. This is something I can live with but would like to repair if possible.

I have had this on 3 Bulls. All broken wires in the driver's side accordion.

UPDATE:
Today after watching some videos one of which recommended sharply tapping the switch with your index finger. After about 7 or 8 taps it started working again. It is still working. Guess it is not a broken wire then. I will use it as long as it is working think that locates problem with the master switch. I have sometimes thought something was repaired and time will tell. Thanks for the photo Chart, not much room to work in between the door and the dash.
