Window motor and clock
« on: September 23, 2015, 12:16:06 PM »
Hello,
I have a 1965 Cadillac DeVille convertable in Sydney.
I need to replace or repair the front window motors and also service the clock.
Can anyone help me.
Thank You Robert

Firstly, what is wrong with the window motors?   slow to operate, or not working at all.   Or out of alignment

With regard to the clock, there are a couple of things that can go wrong with these, and one is the fine wire that is coiled around the electro magnet could be broken, or burnt out, and the clock could be just full of dust, and require cleaning out and oiling.

Could be a number of things like the brushes in the motors, dried-up grease on the mechanical mechanism, and binding of the glass in the runners.

Has it always been like this, or only just started?

Another thing could be a low capacity of the Battery and or wiring problems.

These motors take a fair amount of current to operate.
