Someone on the "s-cars" list had a problem with a window on their 
cabrio.  It seems the grease inside the window regulator became 
old and hardened. When the switch was pressed, the stress on the 
motor overheated something inside the relay, causing the relay 
to fail.

They cleaned out the regulator and put in new grease. They opened
the relay and soldered the connection that had broken. Now the
window works like new.
