    Fixing the usual window problems - how long?

    I've got problems with both my windows Passenger side has problems going all the way up, as if something is in the way (it goes half way up and then starts going down again). Driver side - was opening it last week, heard a clunk and the window dropped (broken clip I guess?)

    Anyway, I'm totally inept at all things car, so it will probably have to be a local garage job, can anyone hazard to guess roughly how much labour I'm looking at? Thanks

    Thanks guys, if it isnt that a difficult job I may hassle a friend who is far more mechanically minded than me and get him to help

    I did mine last week end. Took me about 2 hours, most of the time was spent re-aligning the door back on. Also, dont lower the window all the way down, it will make it easier to access the plastic clips to get them out.
