Hi,
has anyone got an idea why my passenger side front window won't work. Neither the switch on the driver's side or on the passenger side seems to work.
Could a fuse have blown for just that window (the others work fine) ? Or is it likely to be a motor or wiring issue ?

If it is a motor issue, could I just swap the motor from a back door into the front door ?

cheers

Hi,

I'd definitely check the fuse 1st, switch 2nd, then if power is getting to the motor and earthing ok, then motor.

Problem solved.

Pulled out the switch, which revealed that the cable wasn't connected to the switch, plugged it back in, which showed that the swtich worked and the motor made a noise, but the window didn't move.
So, I took the door panel off and found that the cable that goes round the window mechanism/regulator thing had snapped, so the motor wasn't pulling anything.

Went to the local Alfa breakers, got a mechanism and motor for 40 and spent a couple of hours fitting it.
That was fine apart from realising that the window wasn't pulling down straight, due to the little bit of plastic having come off the side of the glass that holds it in the guide rail.

Job done though, works fine.
