    Hello everybody,

    Had a problem with my drivers side window this morning (it wind down) it seems the motor has packed up i cant here any movement at all. I just wanted to ask if there is a seperate fuse for this window, the passenger works fine. Also should i require a new motor can anyone recommend where i can find a used one ?

    Any help or advice would be appreciated i did do a search but didnt come accross any of the above.

    Thanks

    Matt

    I'm sure i've seen something on this before, when you press the switch does the window try and come up but sounds like its hitting resistance?

    Try pulling the window up with your hand at the same time as pressing the up switch.
    A common problem is the frame runners get distorted so the motor feels the resistance and drops the window as a safety feature so as not to crush a small child.

    Spray some silicon alond the runners on the doorframe, I had the same problem and it's cured it, I also have some A6 window clips on standby, just incase they may actually be broken.
