I have a problem with my friend's Cabriolet where the automatic windows on the side doors will not go up or down on the car when you press the switch. My friend says that the motors for the windows check out (he works on cars), but he says that a specific piece called the "celluloid" or "cellanoid" (not sure if I have the right word) needs to be replaced. I was wondering if you could help me diagnose the problem.

Does the piece go under a different name - like a "window regulator?" Is that the same piece? Is it a different piece? What do you think the problem might be? Have other '93 Cabriolet convertibles had the same problem?

Thank you, everyone, for your help :) I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Take care,

Hello, I just had the brakes redone, all new hardware, brakes and drums replaced in the rear. all new brakes and checked up front and new master cylinder and the brakes are still loosing preasure ( no leaks anywhere I've checked) when depresing the pedal it goes down and then will go down just a bit after that,, and the brakes will tighten up ( front only) on opccasion and can't figure out what it is. The only thing left is the brake booster and I am told it could not be this. Any sugestions ,, this one has got me.. I am wondering maybe the wrong brake fluid was put in it. Rudedog61@aol.com
