Brera SV 2.2: Driver side window mechanism cable snapped - expert needed!
A couple of days ago the window on the driver side of my Brera SV 2.2 started playing up and failed.
The motor in the window mechanism is still working but the window does not lift to the closed position - the window is therefore permanently open to the elements.
A friend and I took the panel off the door and we discovered that the cable had snapped inside the window mechanism - we were unable to temporarily lift the window to the closed position. The mechanism looks near impossible to access.
I could really do with some help on the following:
1. Does anyone know how to force the Brera window up so that it is closed - this would at least allow me to drive the car.
2. Could anyone recommend anyone who could get this fixed or the best and of course cheapest way of doing it. New door from a scrap dealer and fit? Mechanic who could probably fix a Brera window mechanism?
3. I really do want to avoid taking it into an Alfa Dealership... I've always had bad experiences with them. My question here then is: Can this be avoided?
Any help would be much appreciated.
