Question: The back window motors both quit at the same time. what can

The back window motors both quit at the same time. what can I do to keep them up without replacing the motors (currently I have big suction cups holding them up but it looks pretty stupid).
What can I expect to pay for a replacement master cylinder (including labor)?
many thanks!

You could remove the inner door panels and put a wedge under the window regulator. And while you are in there you may want to verify that power is in fact getting to the window motors.
