Driver's electric window HELP!

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has had this issue before...

Electric window working fine on passenger side, but when I try to put mine down nothing happens.

I can hear the the familiar little click sound when I press the button, but nothing happens.

I'm not very good with tech stuff, so hoping someone might be able to give me a clue. It's really annoying not being able to put my window down!!

Thanks in advance,

Most likely to be the motor. If yours is a later one where the motor is held onto the lift mech with three screws you have the option of replacing just the motor (potentially with a 156 one) but if it is earlier it will be a new mechanism. Check with a meter at the motor though to make sure it is the culprit first.

If its a p 1 check the wires at top of motor as the soldered contacts may be split, if so, first desolder then resolder. An easy check is to press the window down switch with left hand and then use outside of right fist to thump window. If the window works then id go with the cracked contacts and get soldering iron out.
