like all power windows, it will need maintenance, if not repair- if you want to do it yourself, take the door panel off and try cleaning and greasing the tracks- and the mechanism- if you are lucky, that might do the trick and save you the price of a new motor- if it works, do the other side, too-

Tom and jamn are both right. That Allante is a special car and with that comes special parts and price tags. I've worked on a half dozen or so of them. They are different from most cars from that era. The door panels come of in 2 or 3 sections. The window regulator is like nothing I've ever seen. If your very mechanical go ahead and tear into it. If you are not pay to have it fixed.

Can't believe no one has suggested that the window tape needs to be replaced.
