    I've been having intermittent problems with my front windows for some time now. I't's been a combination of 1/2 working then not working. At the moment neither of them are working. You can hear the click when pressing the buttons but nothing happens. It's a real pain for putting the roof up and down. Any ideas much appreciated.

    Sorry limited knowledge here. When you say a problem is it likely that it needs replaced? If so what's involved? What would be the cost?

    Also just to be sure, try removing the door cards, then while holding down the window button, give the motor a whack with your hand and see if the window operates, if yes then you need a new motor.
