Passenger Side Window Stuck

Postby kylehimself » Fri Feb 01, 2008 1:08 pm

only y'day i was tellin' one of the new guys on the forum how lucky ive been with my meg and how i had no faults... well it looks like my number is up.

had to drive up to the my brothers work to give him some coolent for his beamer. went to put the window down so i could talk to him and hand him the stuff and passenger window just wouldn't move. tried my drivers side control it wouldn't budge. he tried the passenger door control and guess what... wouldn't budge. ive heard of people on here say this has heppend to them but they could here like a wee motor goin'. well i hear nout.

this couldn't have come at a worse time.

anybody have any ideas, other than call renault... cause i hate those theivin' b@st@rds...

kyle :(

You can try resetting it but I suspect even if this worked its on its way out eventually. I'm not so sure the reset is gonna help you buy try it, its free. No the window regulators pretty straight forward once the door cards off.

cheers for the replies lads. still no luck. i tried resettin' it but nothin'.

renault have agreed to look the problem at no cost... which surprised me to be honest. the guy on the phone said they will see if renault uk can get it sorted free of charge. whether or not they come thru is a different story.

but on tuesday at 10:00 i wont be long from findin' out.

Window Regulator

Postby Mick » Sun Feb 03, 2008 11:13 am

You should be OK....Renault UK replaced my window regulator at their expense even though my megane II was out of warranty. :cool:
Important: do not deadlock the car before it has been replaced or you will end up with a open window which cannot be closed without disconnecting the battery and going through the window resetting process. :whip

took the car to renault, they said the regulator cost £250 and the diagnosis was £50. i got charged £50 over all. does this sound ok?? or far to much?

the price for the regulator is right, but it was a bit unfair to charge you £50 to diagnose it, if even fellow non technical owners on here know what the problem is! But then again, its better than paying £300!

the guy said renault uk would cover regulators up till the cars 5th year or so. after that your on your own.

i really hope this doesn't happen again. £300 is so steep. at least i was kinda lucky this time.

Seeing you can source them on ebay for well under £100 (often around the £50 mark) I doubt you have much to worry about in the future :).
