Rear convertible windows

I have a 1988 GT Convertible and the rear windows only go up and down if I hold the power window button and then manually pull or push up or down. I was told that the motor most likely has stripped gears and the part for it is no longer available. Does anyone know if this is the issue and if so how I can get the part.

Re: Rear convertible windows

Ford used to sell a rebuild kit for the plastic gears that tend to brake. If you hear a clunking noise when trying to raise or lower them its just the gears. If you hear nothing it is probably the motors.
