questions for a 98 - Driver Seat motor, Headlights, and window motor

Anyone know where I can buy a replacement motor for my driver seat? The one I have on still works, for the most part, If the seats back too much I press the motor button move up the seat and then the motor doesnt work for about an hour, then i can move the seat again, might this be something else? or should i just replace it?

Headlights, I have 2 pairs of the original headlights, but they have this like yellow tint on em from years of use i guess, can i get rid of this? or should i just buy some new oem headlights?

And the passenger side window no longer goes up, do i need to replace the motor for this as well, a few months ago i had this problem but it only lasted a day or two before the window worked again and it went for months until it stopped working yesterday, coudl it be something else?

For the headlights try toothpaste. Brush em and the yellow should come off

in our shop we use a bg headlight restoration kit that runs like 24$ I believe. one kit has enough to do somewhere between 4-10 lights depending on how bad they are. it works great the only downside is you have to let them cure for 24 hours so you can't drive too far for a day

Aluminum wheel polish (Mothers is good) use it with a polishing wheel...gets it very clear again. If it's foggy from moisture..you need to drill a small hole in the bottom of the headlight bucket to allow the moisture to drain out. Once it's dry you silicone the hole closed.

It gets the out. Try the wheel polisher to really grind it in

My 98 doesn't have power seats....
And the window might be a wire but most likely the motor is shot

Use a jumper wire on the switch, make sure thats not the problem first.

Are you talking about the window or the seat?....and by switch you mean the whole mechanism that contains the buttons? Or are you refering to on the power seat the lil button to move it?
