    Welcome to the boards. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Not sure quite what you mean, can you elaborate a bit further i.e. under what circumstances does it do things or doesn't do things.

    Is it intermitant operation of the windows that you're complaining about?

    What happens when you are not doing anything with the roof, and just use the window switch? i.e. just using the window normally does it always work?

    I'm trying to establish if this is related to the roof lowering mechanism/electronics or actually a problem with the window aspect........because you mentio wear on the window post which would suggest that if this is the cause then this should be happening regardless of what is done with the roof.

    I know very little about the roof mechanism and it's tie into the windows, but hopefully am pointing you in the direction of the fault, and maybe someone else will chip in.

    When you say it doesn't work, can you see the window attempting to lower? or just does nothing?

    If it attempts to lower i.e. twitches, then it is most likely a mechanical restriction of some sort, such as linkage, motor or running channels for the glass, causing the window to go to 'safe mode' like if you trap your head when the window is closing.

    If it does absolutely didly squat thendepending on the layout of the electrical circuit, it could be a relay or the motor.......but not 100% sure with the symptoms you describe.

    Thanks all is well in windowland 4 switches did the trick ALSO the ignition was turning and sticking past the correct point and does prevent the window lights from running correctly
    I'll be looking up ignition to see what's up with this somewhat annoying feature /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
