Passenger windows on '68 Sport Fury
« on: June 20, 2009, 07:20:00 AM »

Howdy all,
 
One of the priorities or last to do items on my list is to fix the electric quarter windows on my fastback.  Both are dead.
 
I'm assuming the motors are seized from inactivity, but... 
 
I've seen references to motor interchangeability over the past couple of years, but never printed them off of the other sites.  Does anyone have any info?  I seem to remember that the motors from an '85 lebaron were compatible.
 
Also there were threads about the exchange process that might save one's fingers.
 
Does anyone have those in a file? Any other hints to try?
 
Thanks,
 
Gary

Not sure on the wing motors, but the window motors go all the way up to 89 at least on the front wheel drive.

Some of the '80s trucks as well.  I got one from a yard that they said came off either a Durango or Dakota (don't remember which)

As for your fingers.  Yeah, be careful.  there is a spring that helps the mechansim work.

Best bet is to take the whole motor and regulator assembly out of the car, and then imobilize the regulator before unbolting the motor.  There are a bunch of variations on the reguators, but you should be able to clamp things, or put a bolt through a hole to keep it from snapping.

 
You are probably right about the motors sticking, but it's pretty easy to check the wiring first.
