Windows Dropped??

So driving home tonight @ +29F (COLD) the windows decided to all of a sudden drop! They still go up and down, but they won't go all the way up??

In the Audi and VW world, the window regulators are a common issue, but in those instances, the windows would just drop all of the way down, and that was that!

Any thoughts, tips? Car is a '98 Boxster, so far she's been really good to me!

Cheers,
Mike

Did they drop like they do when you unlatch the top to put it down?

If so, maybe the contact switch for the convertible top latch?

I also have a 98 Boxster and that has happened to me twice, both times after I went over a hard bounce. The windows would drop and not go up. I stop and start putting the top down a little and then put it back up and the windows would then work. I don't know if the switch is going bad or is mis-aligned or what but messing with the top works for me. Ed

I'll try that tonight. I didn't want to fool around too much as it was really cold and having the windows 3/4 of the way up was way better than all the way down!

I'll try the convertible top trick and see if that resolves the issue. I only have a few more weeks of driving before the white stuff comes down from the skies!
