    Hi Guys,

    Any ideas as to where to start? there are 2 screws on the top panel but apart form that I cannot see where to go next.

    Got a problem with the door, everything does not work, ie electric window, trim lights, interior light when the door is open and the dash does not register the door as being open so Im guessing something to do with the wiring? The only thing that works is the central locking but is that electric or pneumatic?

    cheers in advance

    undo the 2 screws u mentioned then simply lift the door card up, simple.

    Probabily 1 or more of the connectors have come loose, there is a few of them.

    Hi EvoMaster,

    got the door panel off as you said, very easy but none of the connectors are loose, any idease?

    the fact that the onboard PC cannot detect when the door is open or closed the eelctric window does not work is there somewhere else I could look, the central locking is working and it looks electrical but no windows and no door switch or detedction when the door is open?

    the electric window switch does not open the windows nor does the drivers switch either

    cheers
