'65 Caravel Window openers

I am looking for at least two replacement window openers (the little mechanism that opens the windows) for our 65 Caravel. I have two that will open the window if you lift the outside of the window about an inch, and they will work fine, but I want to get them working as they should be. Currently, I either use a pair of socks, go around, stick them in, and then can operate the window, or if the wife is with me, she or I go around and lift the window, and then open it the rest of the way. Is there something inside that just needs tightening? Can these be rebuilt. Is there a source out there for these?
