a mechanical problem takes only a second- that is a very cool car, originally made for millionaires- enjoy it, but treat it like money is no object- you will have other problems like this, so find a good classic car mechanic, and don't let the problems pile up

If you live in the Northeast, you can try contacting John Monzo at - itsonlyluv@comcast.net and he will tell you exactly how to fix it. He runs an Allante specific repair shop. Another great source for parts is Dick Hussey at allantesource@prodigy.net . Pull down motors do fail and Dick has the parts. If you ever have occasion to visit his shop - he has enough parts to build a dozen cars.
