Maybe add a couple of "partially works" options. Mine technically works, but has what seems like a weak motor and it gets off center and needs a helping hand sometimes.

My 84 works fine.

It'll probably quit now...

If there is one thing I absolutely hate about my truck - that is it. I can have that thing apart, give it a tug to get it moving, and back together in about 10 minutes now. I don't dare roll it down if I don't have too. It doesn't help that the housing has a slight crack, and it binds up. Everytime I have it apart, I can't help but think if there is a better way than the spring-loaded deathtrap AMC installed.....maybe some pnuematics since I already have a compressor? Or maybe a couple of linear actuators.....

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Mine works when it feels like it. I also believe it has hours of operation that go from about 8 am till about 8:05 am but only the second tuesday of every other month.

Took a fair amount of work to get it working right, but it's a trooper. The defroster has been a different story...

what Areocorey said X2 , Every wag Ive owned has required periodic maintenance to keep it working. I use it at least once a week to keep it exercised. That seems to keep it healthy

Mine worked about 5 times after I bought it.


It stopped in the down position.


I found a manual set up at my local junk yard 3 months after and now the window worked every time

If I let the window go down to far it 'catches' and won't come back up unless I open the tailgate and then use the key (or switch) to 'start it'. I had to hold the safty switch in place to make it think it was shut.

Other than that, it works like a charm. (But I voted no)

Mine's always been manual, but I've still had some go-rounds with it. Seems to be working OK at present. (Knock on wooden head.)

No, I didn't vote.

Mine worked great until about 9 months after I got it; now the dash switch does not do anything, mostly because the switch in the tailgate is giving up It rolls down fine, but if you don't watch it, when you release the key, the window will continue trying to go up. I really just need to replace that switch... or wire it to use the dash switch only. I enjoy being able to open and close the rear window while driving

Both my previous and current 86's have worked flawlessly. My 90 gave me some fits though, but once I figured out it was a combination of the latches being out of adjustment and the safety switch, took care of those two, it worked great the rest of the time I had it.
