Hey guys my imperial windows worked awhile ago hut now the passenger side front works with the main 4 way switch but not with the switch on the door and the back passengerwindow has stoped working all together. I know the windows all worked as they should last year is there a fuse that im not seeing somewhere it is driving me nuts cause the back one is stuck like a crack down.any help would be great.

My guess, the front passenger switch needs cleaning and the rear passenger motor has a bad wire or dead commutator bar. No individual fuses for each door, just a single circuit breaker for all the switches.

In my '57 no fuse but a circuit breaker, under the driver kick panel (second pic). If the two stopped at the same time take a look at the wiring which goes to passenger side, on my car it run on the upper of the firewall (inside) just below the windshield, you can see it on the first pic.

Commutator bars aren't replaceable separately. If one bar on the assembly fails because of dirt or mechanical separation and the motor stops turning with a brush on that bar, the motor won't function. Sometimes, disassembly and cleaning the commutator will restore function.
