update >>ALL IS OK NOW

Ok I've been putting this off for weeks but nct is this Friday and my Corrado drivers window has stopped working
any ideas on what might be a easy fix

using the drivers side controls
the passenger window goes up and down, and when I try and do my drivers side I can hear the reply box in the rear passangers door card clicking on and off when I press the up or down drivers window button

I stripped off the door card today thinking it was a loose wire, and all looks to be ok
I can hear something engaging/clicking inside the door when the window motor is, so I guess the contacts are trying to engage the Motor to go forwards or backwards ( up/down) are the brushes worn out?

If the motor is gone, can I just replace the motor with out removing the whole window regulator setup?

She should, she was back nct-ed so only got a year out of it. Would be annoyed if she didn't.

See what u want to know is can I just take the motor out of a passanger corrado door, and use it for the drivers side and do it with the regulator still in the car with out having to take the window glass etc out ???

Only the motor? Anyone know???????

I have the NCT tomorrow night at 730pm. The Corrado is in the garage now getting a few jobs done but you are more than welcome to drive down to Limerick and take a loan of the motor from my car for the test.

Provided you give it back after that is

thanks man, I've replaced and installed manual and electric windows I a golf mk2 but Corrado ones are totlly different, the motors and regulator, are pop rivited in, and just has hard to get out. I had a spare passanger door sittig in the shed for my blondy Corrado, so I tried it using my cars electronics and the window worked so it had to be the motor! I took the motor etc out of my parts car, When I undid Mine, drilled all the rivits etc I said sure for the craic I'd see if mine now works... And the bastard started to move! So I think the window was jammed, or the motors brushes are starting to ware out. and when I pushing around the window it must of moved something. Didn't change the regulators, just pop rivited it back in. And have a spare one now for when it does finnaly pack up. I greesed everything, window runners and the wire etc so hopefully this will keep it working. Thanks again man for the offer, will u be at the Limerick show? What colour rado do u have? Any pics/ build thread?

it's not quite that easy
drill out 7 pop rivits, u don't need to take the window glass out, just remove the two sliding arms from the window and loads of moving around and it does come out

Best tip, get a vice grip or clamp and clamp the window up once u have the sliding arms removed. I'll post up some pics later 30 -50 min job
