Default 89 Camry pwr window controls

The right rear passenger power window of my 89 Camry recently
failed in the down position. Both the master switch and the door
switch both failed to work.
I bought the car the an auto glass repair shop I've used in the
The tech disconnected the Molex plug at the window motor and
connected a 12volt supply to the connector and the door switch worked
and brought the window up. The master switch still did not function.
The tech said the master switch was bad and suggested to get a new
Toyota wanted $268.00 for the switch (not a returnable part) and
the parts tech said that the problem is most commonly a broken wire
somewhere along the path.
Testing the switch and it's continuity is fairly easy as per the
repair manual diagram. What may be the difficult part is finding the
break or bad connection in the wiring.
My question for the group is: Does anyone have any experience with
this problem or has some knowledge as to where a most likely location
of a wiring break would be in this situation ?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.

The most likley place for broken wires is where they go thru the drivers
door to the body. That would be the first place to check
