I own a 1998 Deville D'Elegance and had my Drivers Side power window motor go out, upon removing the door panel (the screws are hidden) I encountered a large metal plate covering the entire door, there didn't appear to be an easy way to remove it without disconnecting the side airbag and other items such as the door handle so I took it to my local Chevy dealer (after calling the Cadillac dealer for a quote) and had the motor, master window switch (the one in the drivers door that operates all 4 windows) and labor done for around $500. This is in NW Florida and was about a year ago.

Sounds like your master drivers side window switch is on its way out. If you can find a working used one you can save some money. It will interchange with Cadillac Deville, Fleetwood FWD 4 doors from 85-93. Also a lot of the 4 door Olds 98 (85-90) and Olds 88 (86-91) have the IDENTICAL switch.

the regulator and motor need replaced. they can both be ordered on line for about $65. and have a local car window shop install them for a $100 or less. the regulator will come with the motor installed. just make sure you order the new regulator with motor. a local cadillac shop or window repair shop will try to charge you over $500 to fix
