This weekend I took the wife for a drive in the vert, put the windows, lowered the top and cruised all day. When we got home, the rear windows would not raise, only go click click!! I had to have the wife push the window switch while I raised them by hand. Today I pulled them apart, removed the motor which worked but when I grab the gear on the end, it skips. I disconnected the motor and took it to the bench, pulled apart the gear assembly to find a bunch of pieces!!

Why would both motors eat themselves at the same time?? Is there an adjustment for the stop??

Do I need to replace the whole motor or can I get the gear assembly??

Is this normal wear and tear??

Ouch, ouch, and ouch again! Sorry to hear about BOTH motors going at the same time. Talk about double whammy.

I have exactly zero experience when it comes to what you're asking, and have yet to read any tech articles regarding your problem. Hopefully someone who has the info you're seeking will chime in and post.

Maybe drop Dave (wythors) an email. He has a 'vert too and he may know something about your problem.

Upon further inspection, it looks like there are 3 little plastic ball bearings in the gear assembly that got ate up.

Likely just coincidence they both went at once. One of our local salvage yards carries new "gear kits" for about $15.00 apiece. The kits are pretty universal fit for the "new"flat motors and the "old" round style motors. I know the kit will work in you door window motors, but I won't swear they'll work for the quarter glasses. The long shaft on the motors makes them unique. Check into the kits, I know you'd prefer spending $30 rather than the price of 2 new motors. If the local junkyard has em, I'm sure they are commonly available from a number of sources.

Heres an other method. Clean all the parts, except the crumpled pieces, which would be the plastic big gear and the small cast metal gear and JB weld them together. I worked at a Ford dealer four four years andthis was a little secret. works like a champ. Just be careful not to let the motor run, switch in on position when the window is all the way up or down. Those three plastic balls absorb the shock when the window stops and the motors trying to turn. Ps. I've done all mine that way and they're still working just fine after a few years.

Most local NAPA stores also carry the gear repair kits. I have had to replace a couple in the P/SA GT convert and the McLaren. Motors seem to last, just the gears self destruct.
