Hi guys, thanks for the replies.
Re the electric window, I still have a problem, but also I feel a bit dumb - after some hunting I found the original handbook (never looked at it since 1993 eek! ) and it's layout of the auxilliary bracket. The layout of mine does not resemble the handbook, however, beyond that both have relays and fuses - the passenger window is on the 2nd row, not the first, with only the red ABS one beside it. Anyway, all the fuses there are intact. There are only two other 25A ones, both on the top row, and guessing from the handbook, one is for the rear windows (I have rear windows, but they are not electric wink ). Both of these are 0V with the ignition on, so I suspect one is the driver's window, but it has no power feed to it. I'm a bit stuck now without a wiring diagram, I don't want to have to hack the wiring to get a power feed, but I may have to...
Re the gearbox, its nice to know it is straightforward. Apart from a bunch of motorbike gearboxes, I stripped Fiat 850/127/131/Tipos and an Escort automatic (good fun).
Thanks for the info again.
