 My 1984 4kQ only had front electric windows, not rear.  The
switch was on the centre console, near the gearshift lever.  The
switches are terrible!  I would take them apart and clean and
epoxy them back to working order every coupla years.  Don't use
hot glue if you need to rebuild the plastic housing, the heat
generated at the contact point melts it.

 My 1990 90Q20V has the switches in the armrest, like my two
5kQ's.  The switches are terrible!

Sounds like an outer cv joint.  No biggy in dollars.
