Keep in mind that the family album CD is for Euro models...  AFAIK all
US 5000 models from 1984 have power windows standard.  Thus, it's going
to be hard to find the needed pieces here.  The dealers probably won't order
non-US spec parts for you, and you will not likely find these pieces from
a recycle yard.  You'll have to ask yourself whether it is worth the
trouble of ordering from a European dealer.  Probably cheaper to just
replace the power window regulators.  They are not very difficult to do
and the parts are easily found...
