306 Front Elec Window juddered to a halt - chindu
Hi All,

The front near-side electric window has just packed up on my 1996 1.9TD. It started juddering going back up but now has stopped all together. Thankfully it is stuck in the closed position.
I've checked the electrics and they seem to be ok.
It looks like it is pointing to the cable not being wound by the motor.....it tries but nothing happens.

Has anyone else had the same or similar happen? Is a new motor the way forward and if so does anyone have a rough price for it?

Many thanks.

sounds like a new motor is the way down rather than forward
if you can disconnect the glass from the mechanism see it the mechanism works then while not under load,be aware it can chop a finger off though so no digits in the hole while checking

It'll be a trip to the scrap yard to see how to disconnect it then.....
Thanks for the tip about fingers - I'm quite attached to them :-)
