Electrical window going
Hi

My driver side window is only working for the last top 10cm..

Before it started getting stuck there it was as if the rubber ribbing where the window came out of the door was "holding" the window back and you could hear a crunchy noise coming from the area behind the inside door lock knob.

Should I open the door panel and have a look or is this something you take to a panelbeater or auto electrician?

The winder engine still works but if I need to replace it where do I source it?

I bought the Syncro from a auto electrical guy in Stellenbosch 5 years ago,maybe take it to him?
Any advice will be appreciated!

RE: Electrical window going
Took it to an auto electrician and it seems as if the cable pulling the window up and down is frayed.Will be recabled (if there is such a word)and will keep you informed on outcome.

In retrospect I think one could have maybe dismanteled window setup,bought a new cable and refitted it all again..

Thanks Dean

Good to know!

The cabling fixed for R1900 and running opening/closing like a dream now!
