Are power window motors hard to rebuild? Or would it be easier to send them somewhere to get rebuilt? And what places do that kind of work?

The motor is not hard to rebuild. The difficult part is finding new brushes and sealing the motor after. The factory dips them in a sealant to keep water out. You’ll need that in Seattle. To get your motors rebuilt try looking in the yellow pages in the automotive section. Maybe someone else knows a good rebuild shop.

You may consider trying to locate used motors. I have gotten several used motors from local U-Pull-It yards. I get the motors off the back windows of clean two door 70s full size GMs. Likely to get less use. Don’t know the exact year but at some point the electrical connection changed, watch for that.
