question about window regulators

Post by Stef27 »

Hello

Do you know if the front window regulators are different for 3 and 5 doors?
regarding the window motor, I see that it can be found without the complete mechanism, are they identical at the front and rear and are they different right/left?

I'm waiting for it to stop freezing to completely disassemble the system and see where the problem is coming from, I think it's the motor, since pressing the button causes the big white relay to "click", but nothing is not happening.
if it came from the mechanism, it would move, but only part of the way.

tell me if I'm right.

look the short video with sound

THANKS

The regulators are different from 3 to 5 door cars.

You can test to see if the motor is at fault by doing the following;

-Use a multi meter at the motor plug end of the body wiring harness to check for a 12v feed when the switch is actuated. If there is one, it’s highly likely the motor is defective.
-You can also apply 12v direct to the motor from a slave battery. If the motor functions, there’s obviously an issue elsewhere within the circuit.

OK, agreed
I'll check it out when it stops freezing here.

and do you think that the window motors are different between the 3,4,5 doors and are they different between front and rear?
Does right or left matter? (only for motors without mechanism)

That I’m unsure - I’d need to check the parts EPC. They may be sided, but I’d need to check.
