    Broken window

    Hi guys, the drivers window will not move using the switch, if you press the switch you can hear the motor but it doesn't sound too healthy! You can move the window up and down by hand? Anyone know if its definately the motor?

    Thats very true, but also think about if its soo high already (if its not been looked after) it could be on the way out? its a risk worth taking for the loss you'd make over 2 years on a 50,000 mile car? 'If its for you, it wont go by you'!
