window motors/mechanism!!
« on: 22:01, Mon 10 October 2011 »
ive tried about 8 different window motors and all seem to struggle to a point where the window just wont move unless i give a help in hand,the wiring and connections are fine,my windows have been left for some time so im thinking is it the whole window mechanism which might need replacing?but at the same time i am thinkin to put manual winders in my 5 but what would that involve?thanks cos this is really startin to peee me off!

yeah mate tried that and they seen to get a little better but not how they should be so i might just change the whole thing or take the manual winders from a campus,unless i can make the winders fit the electric set-up that the r5 came with?

no kinks are bends,i think they must just be tight against the glass so might need to prise them open slightly

It's most likely the flock coating has worn off the window rubbers causing a greatly increased friction, fitted new window rubbers on mine and they went from the point of barely moving to working like new

My drivers window does this, it only goes about halfway down.

A quick looked showed there seemed to be a strip of rubber that's popped out somewhere, or it isn't fitted where it should be. I'll get round to it one day.  :lol:

I know you said the wiring and connectors are fine... but I had this with mine and I found it eventually to be a loose connection, I cabled tied it tight together on the door and it was fine ever since! Have you checked the voltages etc.?
