Drivers window problem
Over the past few months my 147 (06 3dr) driver's side elec front window had been occasionally juddering when moving down.
A few days ago I pressed the down button on the door console to open the window and there was immediately a rather loud creaking noise (a bit like metal on metal), a few other strange sounds and then nothing. The window no longer goes up or down at all when pressing the buttons (the motor still sounds as if its working okay) and is now slightly loose in its frame. If I place my palms on each side of the pane I'm able to drag the window up and down manually about half way. And as I'm driving, the window very gradually slides downwards from being fully closed.
All looks to be more of a mechanical issue than electrical (or probably both) but as I'm pretty much a novice on the inner workings of a 147, I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on what might have happened and what is likely to need fixing/replacing, before I head out to a garage.
Any info much appreciated. Tks
