Drivers Side Window Problem

Postby LloydyLUFC » Tue Jan 22, 2008 8:32 pm

Not posted on here much, more of a voyeur but thought id share my only problem so far!

Had my 06 Megane a couple of months. Silver, 17" alloys, pan roof! Lovely looking car! Read the comments about water in the door pocket, which worried me, mine looked ok so thought id be ok!

About 2 hours ago, pulled up on the drive and locked the doors. On the second lock it activated my electric window to go down!? I thought that was strange so unlocked it and tried to move window up! Nothing! Oh oh! Passenger side was fine, pan roof was fine, just drivers side! Then it started raining lol. So took door card off, after about an hour! Jesus that was tricky! Everything inside was soaked! Managed to unclip the glass and jammed it into place for a trip to the dealer tomorrow!

Hopefully they wont have it too long!

It must be the day for it, because my car has done precisely the same thing tonight. It was too dark for removing the door card, so I've got a stylish black bag attempting to keep the car dry over night. I just hope noone takes a fancy to trying to rummage around in the car overnight ! It is odd though why the electrics open the window on locking the car. The opposite would be a bonus, but this way around means you end up with an unsecured and soggy car.

Mine's an 04 reg 1.9 dci Dynamique. I love the car. It went back to the garage where I bought it from last week to have new suspension top mounts fitted, and now this. I hope this is the end of any problems. It had been fine for the first two months of owning it, then two problems in as many weeks. Then again though other makes are not unknown for the same sorts of issues. I had an Audi A6 which had two electric window motors fail, driver's window and rear passenger side window. And I know Rover Coupe (which I've also owned) are well known for driver's side electric window failing. It's not just Renaults !!! I just hope the garage can get it sorted tomorrow.

Sounds like the Window Regulators have failed on both of your cars. You can get the parts from ebay and once you have the door card off it is an easy fix. Alternatively the dealer will happily do it for you.

Walibe forgive my ignorance on this but is a regulator the motor? Mine went few months back but luckily is in the up position. Lots on E bay so will look at doing it myself too. Looks like hardest part could be getting door card off :roll:

Well after a phone call at 10.30am i headed down to my local dealer at Pontefract. Handed over the keys at 11.30am with the view of getting it back tomorrow! 4.00pm got a phone call, car is sorted! It was the regulator that had gone. Well pleased with the services from the dealer!

I'm worried. Yesterday, the missus' Modus was frozen, so I was out helping her get the ice off before she went to work. I thought her drivers window was just misted, so I tried to drop the window to clear it, but it was icy, not misty. Frozen shut. There was a very springy "clun" from inside the door, then nothing else, but the window didn't move. She's not tried to open it since, she daren't. I'm worried that when she goes to open it it'll drop into the door. Arse. Warranty repair beckons!

My missus moved the megane in the morning of the 'saga' with the same conditions. She said the window wouldn't move due to the ice. Wonder if i had the same sort of issue.

Fair play to the place i bought the car from, they've got a bad reputation but they took the car in with no notice at 8.50 and phoned me at 10.20 to tell me it was fixed. I don't know precisely what they did because I was too busy to find out. I was just glad it was sorted. The door switches had definitely been removed because the cloth hadn't been tucked back under fully, other than that I couldn't tell what had been done. I learned something new about the car from this though, and that was that it has full closure feature from using the key card. I didn't know you could do this until now! I don't suppose u can also open the windows using the card? Asking a bit much I know. My Audi A6 could do it, was not always a welcome feature though because if you sat on the keys in the right way you could open the windows without realising!

I had the same problem the other day. Hit the lock button twice and my drivers window went up ok, but at the same time the back window came down :oops: Button would not put it back up again. Then i remembered a wee tip someone once told me, hold the button up for 8-10 seconds and that resets the regulator. Hey presto it went up, no more problems so far.
Back from Zafira hell....... Good to be home. Number 3 scenic bought and "im lovin it"
