Bypass front window power switch

I was wondering if anyone knew a bypass or workaround for me to roll up the front LH window. I hulked and ripped the switch clear off couple nights ago (it's been finicky for a while). I ordered a new power switch already, but just shipped today and would like to roll up the window so I can drive without having the freezing wind blowing in my face.

I haven't tried anything yet, just putting some feelers out there for one of you electrical whizzes to tell me the best way.

Thanks!

Remove the switch assembly and place two jumpers. One between pin 2 (white) and 12 (Blue), and another between pin 10 (Black) and 16 (Blue/Black). The window will keep trying to roll up, even after it reaches the top so pull the jumpers when it gets to the top.

I tried to jump on the outgoing terminal strands directly from the circuit since I have some jumper wires with small alligator clips, and nothing happened. Do I have to jump directly in the wire harness terminal? Looks like I'm headed to Radio Shack.

Should be able to shove something in the connector. It's been a while since I've pulled that module so I don't remember exactly what the connector looks like.
