Default Rear 1/4 window removal

Ok so as I have seen many times (yes I have searched and read posts) my passenger rear 1/4 window on my 1993 convertible isn't working properly. It goes partway down sometimes and takes several tries to get It back up again. I tried looking at my CD-ROM manual, but couldn't find anything really useful, nor did I quite understand some of the posts about it. Long story short, how exactly do I pull it out? Im guessing that I have to pull the lift cylinder to take it out right?

I've never had to remove the window itself. When the 1/4 windows haven't worked, it was either a relay issue or motor stuck due to lack of use (I hardly ever have the top up). Tapping the motor with a screwdriver while applying current worked to get it unstuck.

From your description, it sounds like a relay issue or poor contacts somewhere in the circuit. Have you tried swapping the relays from the two 1/4 windows? I'd also do a thorough contact cleaning of the whole circuit and see if that works before trying to remove the window.

Cheers

Thanks for the insight. I got my motor out and pulled the case off and it looked ok except for a black ring from the brushes. I cleaned it up and tried on a battery and it kicked a split second then stopped, then ran half a second and stopped again. I was looking to see if I could find a new one and unfortunately I did .Wow they’re expensive!!! I am going to see if my local electric motor repair shop can do it for a fraction of the cost! Lol

So this is the motor that wasn't working. I decided "what the heck I'll tinker with it". I pulled the base off and everything looked fairly normal, although I did add a little bit of grease to the tip of the motor shaft. I then decided to pull the gear and back cover to see what I could. Hmmmmmmmm. The rubber piece was twisted and pulled up in the one spot. I looked at the way it operated and decided that it really didn't seem to matter if the rubber was in it or not, that and I had remembered a forum post that said the same thing. I took it out and tried it on a battery. IT LIVES!!!!!!!! Tomorrow I'll put it back in and see how it goes!

Got it back together and it works kinda. Lol. It worked the first couple tries, then it didn't come back up the third time without pulling up on it. Of course then it worked again, and then the left side didn't go up! Argh! I may try new relays to see if it helps
