Is it possible to replace a door with manual windows with a door with electric? Would I be able to pull power into the door somehow to make the electric window work? For what it's worth, it is driver side.

Front yes, rear only if you have power door locks. Rear doors without either has no hole for wires to go through. In that case you have to swap the entire door. Might be easier to scour the boneyard for an entire door with power windows anyway. If color doesn't match you can either repaint it or transfer all the bits over. If they matches just swap the entire door.

So the front driver's side door, currently manual windows and locks, can be replaced with power windows, but the rear can't because it is currently totally manual and has no place for wires. In the front, is there an existing harness I can tap into (like I think I've read with going from manual to electric mirrors) or will I have to get a little dirtier than that?

Thanks!

[edit]

Also, can anyone say whether the Corolla doors are truly interchangeable with prizm doors? I know the Prizm and the Corolla are practically identical, but I also know that the taillights/trunk are different and thought maybe the doors were slightly off. Did the '02 front-end redesign change the door specs at all, either?

Don't know between Prizm and Corolla; but the 8.5 facelift definitely didn't change the door.

The front door wire would just be there for the speakers. I modded a wire with power door locks for power mirrors not long ago for someone here. Yours will be more involved than that for sure since you'd be going from power nothing to power everything.
