    Last on a list of jobs has been fixing a side power window on my 79.

    I pulled the thing and am a little confused as to whats quite wrong.

    If I bridge the contact indicated by the arrow

    it works fine...BUT I cant see how the contact bridges itself without my help, is it missing parts or am I missing something simple?

    Thanks

    the picture is pretty small but from what i can see it looks like a solonoid should drive the contacts closed. I don't htink that chevy ever used a soloniod in that application though. If you could take a few larger pics so i could get a better look at it we might get somewhere.

    From what i remember of the PW circut there is just a switch in the door that puts DC power to the motor brushes. My memory could be bad though as i do not have power anything in my truck but we did fix my neighbors PW's over the last summer. His switch contacts were so dirty that it stopped working because of lack of contact.

    Your right about a lack of solonoid and the DC power to the brushes. In case you cant see it in the pic (pwrwindow3) the contact is insulated from the brush frame by plastic washers.

    Ive just uploaded a better pic (30 mins to update) that should show all.

    Totally confused about the lincoln drag car, I dont have one!

    Thanks
