Auto Window Drop - Tip/Fix
I used to have a bit of an issue with the auto-drop windows but seem to have this sorted now so I thought I would post in case it helps anyone else.
The issue I had was that it was really intermitent. One time it would drop fine on opening the door, then it wouldn't drop, then it would, not logic to it at all. The window always worked, but the drop was random.
I had noticed that they were only dropping a small amount also, one side more than the other but both by just a few mm.
So they have now been adjusted to drop a lot more, the manual says 4mm but to be honest mine now come down by perhaps 6-7mm or so. But with this has brought consistency! They now seem to work on the button every time. I'm guessing the small amount of drop before meant sometimes the micro switch wasn't quite triggered for it to work properly, other times it was etc. Obviously all the mechanisms had a good greasing whilst the door card was off at the same time.
Worth checking out if you have any issues! I would rank as a pretty easy DIY job, there is no need to adjust the actual window alignment which is what is supposed to be tricky. The adjustment is simply made by releasing a small cam and sliding it up or down a bit. It's also pretty easy to remove the door cards as long as you know where all the screws are! Watch out for the one behind the window switches!
Hope this is of some help... off to feal smug about nicely working windows at last!
