    I noticed this morning that my drivers window did not want to go all the way down or up by just flicking the switch once as it usually does and should. Anyone know the cause of this or if it is just a setting??

    Normally when stuff like this happens it means the anti shut feature has been set off I would've said. I.e. to stop kids getting their arms stuck in there etc. Check that all the rubber is flush at the bottom of the window and in the channel as sometimes it can ridge and stop the window

    This happens on mine quite regularly, whatever position the window is in.

    I think you have to hold the window switch for a few seconds after closing to reset it, and then it should work okay

    Yeah mine did the same when I tired to close my partners head in it the other day. Like said, hold the switch up when it's shut for a few seconds

    Worked! I had to hold it in the up position until I heard a click which than put it in auto mode.
