power window problems

my windows did work, then they didint, so i popped the switch out and wiggled the wires and it worked for a little and now i cant get it work at all, driver side dont work at all. Is there any way i can switch to manual crank windows? can i just swap mechanisms or somthing?

You probably have a bad switch which is usually the problem of intermittent electric windows.

I have a set of manual window regulators (tracks) for sale for an early 2 door, asking $40, comes with one handle, you'd have to pick up another if you want 2 (they're cheap). PM me if you're interested...
