Drivers window- press the button- the noise happens but window doesnt move. It was an intermittent fault but now permanent!

Annoying thing is the car was serviced 2 weeks ago (still intermittent then) and I forgot to mention it. Now the MOT is due within 10 days!

Any guesses as to likely problem/ fix?

Thanks....


P.S. she's on 99,500- here's to 100k :thumbs:

The motor seems to be really struggling to move mine, when it is almost all the way down there's a loudish "twang" noise from a spring.

Maybe a stripped tooth on a drive rail? Might have to pull the door skins off and have a look.

When you have the door card off look carefully at the state of the cables that operate the window - I have just had a similar problem but the window was stuck only part way open, this was caused by one or two of the wires that make up the cable breaking and unraveling this then jamed the system.
