    Passenger window !

    A chap at work kindly came and told me my passenger window was open in a rain storm... My seat was soaked but the thing I don't understand is how the window was open to begin with! ... Anyone had there passenger window drop all the way down by its self or must i be knocking it when I get out :S!.... Was going to check the fuse but if it was a fuse problem it wouldn't work at all right ? :S ...
    Any help would be much appreciated! ..
    Thanks,
    Rob

    no convenience module on a B5, its part of the central locking pump.

    I've done this myself and it was caused by me catching the button on the drivers door as i got out.

    Oh cool save me looking for that tomorrow then!... and if the central locking is fine it wouldn't be that right?... Yeah I've got a feeling its me cause my bro (mechanic) got in it and played around with the windows and he couldn't find anything wrong with it. He put all the windows up and check it all round before locking it. Its been 3 hours now and the window is still up *touchwood* so it must be me!...
    Thanks for the replies

    I believe Paddy in the 8p section had the same problem with his keys getting caught in his pocket. x

    Yeh, i only caught it because i happened to have a passenger who was getting out at the same time and as he closed the door noticed the window go down, and i realised where i'd put my hand right there and then.

    Had i been on my own i'd no doubt have come back to the car thinking WTF?
