What's going on with my window?


I appear to have a problem with the drivers window of my 04 3 door 147. When i open the window, it stops half way down, and to get it all the way open i have to keep prodding the switch. This also happens on the way up too. Appears to only do this when its cold, weather not car, and when the days is warm it works fine!

Anyone have this or knows what to do about it? the passenger window seems to be OK.

Any idea's greatly appreciated

Have you tried lubricating the windows runners?

Get some Silicone spray lube on the runners each side of the window and on the rubber seals too.
It could be that the window controller thinks it is stuck, so cuts the motor.

you can also try resetting the window position..... Close the window fully, then keep the "up" button 10 seconds pressed.
Repeat for fully open, with "down" button pressed 10 seconds. This resets the end stops....
