My passenger's side power window no longer goes down; it is currently closed.

When I press the button I hear a very faint click and nothing happens.

Based on searches I've done it could possibly be one of three things:
    Bad Fuse (I doubt I'd hear a click though)
    Bad switch
    Bad PW motor

What's the likeliest issue?

It was the motor: Case closed. My local independent German car repair shop did the job--not cheap, but they did use an original BMW part.
