    Lol good question, it went down fine when driving but wouldnt go down automatically, so today when driving i put it down fine then parked up shut the window, when i went to put the window down again it woulnt go down at all, but it will go up as it responds when i press the button up.

    Sounds like a window switch problem, since the window regulator sounds like it's working. The window fix problem posted above will allow it to open, but not close. Try and open your windows with the key in the door lock, just use key to unlock manually, but hold in the unlock position to see if the windows wind down to test the mech out.
