The weirdest ironic thing happened earlier. For starters, I didnt know that my 91Z had an auto-down driver side window. (OK you can call me retarded, I never looked hard enough to see the extremely faded "auto" under the button). The button, i guess is old and shitty, and I found out if i push it really hard, the window goes down automatically. So I was so amazed that a 91 has an auto-down window, and I was playin w/ it. Rolled it down and up like 10 times. THEN THE DAMN THING GOT STUCK DOWN!!! I had to wait a few minutes, then it rolled up an inch, then the motor shit out again for a minute. Then is was wait....roll....wait....roll....
very annoying :evil: . LOL, I guess curiousity killed that cat (or the window motor :) ).

That motor is riveted in, isnt it?..... and costs about $50 US?........ plus MORE door panel clips (which ive gone through like 3 sets of them in the last 3 months taking the panel on and off for various reasons).

The weird thing is, I dont know if the motors bad or not. After it went up all the way, i rolled it down a bit and back up, and it seemed like it had no problems at all.........

Damn....... Its always something :( ...... *sigh*

lol I've replaced mine 2 times...once 3 days ago :p You'll have to drill the rivets out, I just bought some bolts and some 11mm nuts and put those where the rivits were. makes it easier for when it goes out again :) And you can get a motor for about $50...mine was $40. Good luck and leave that Auto window alone next time :)

Lol, actually the auto window is a nice option. I just got handed some shit-luck to have the window motor die on me the day i discovered i had an auto window :roll: . Oh well, no big deal.

I can probably find a wiring diagram on Mitchell on Demand at my work. I was thinking about doing that, cuz it cant be that complicated, just a switch, and maybe some wiring mods. If I can get my scanner to work, I'll upload it on saturday or sunday.
