about the window not going up or down. i have a cheep fix, that does the trick. i have done this on mine. and it holds up for a long time. take the snap-ring off, so you can take the geer off the window motor. clean out all the pieces. then mix up some JB weld.fill it not quite all the way full. put the geer down into it. then make it is full of JB weld. put the snap ring back. and let it set over night to set up. then put it back together. and problem solved. i have two birds. and thats how i fix them.The window that spins but does nothing needs new plastic pegs inside the motor. I've gotten them at Advance before. There should be a sticky somewhere on here. It is a tedious, but straightforward job. It's worth rebuilding both sides.
The one that goes down 3", I would start with spraying the vertical rubber track with liberal amounts of silicone spray and working the window up and down. I'm talking about actual silicone spray, not WD-40. Honda brand is supposed to be really good.
And while I admire your energy, I couldn't bring myself to work on windows until the car is running.
Hopefully you addressed the stale gas issue. The gas they sell today starts to gum up after 2 months. After 18 months, it could be bad enough to keep the car from running. Though I am sure there is a reason it was parked 18 months ago. Seafoam in the tank will dissolve the varnish, plus add a few gallons of fresh gas.
Do you have any maintenance history of the car? Either paper records or info from a Carfax or similar? In my case on my old 93 Mark VIII (like 8 years ago), which had an odometer that stopped at 110,000... I had the mileage and tire type of the last 4-tire change, of which the two rears were still on the car. Given their remaining tread and the treadlife warranty them, I was able to estimate how many miles were put on the car since they were installed. From that I was able to get a ballpark estimate of the actual mileage (it was closer to 140,000 using that method).I don’t assume this is anyway to know how many miles the old girl really has on her is their
