Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Got the rear quarter window apart as it was making a horrible noise and not operating properly.

Some issue has caused the motor not to stop and that has ripped the metal pressing - a dab of weld will sort it but I am wondering how it happened.

The stops have been messed with and the main stop inside the quadrant you can see above is not being hit before the top stops.

Image

Obviously this is auto controlled when the hood goes up but I don't see any limit switches, is it monitoring the current draw of the motor to determine when it is on its stops ?

(got to move a Windows partition to make enough space for a WIS install so don't have that yet)

All back together with a little grease and fettling of the Teflon guides and working fine for the moment. Still like to know how it works though!

This worked fine manually but when I closed the roof for the third time and auto wound the windows up the motor was obviously trying to drive it beyond it's stop and it sounds like it has broken the repair (powerful motors!).

I have seen window calibration mentioned for later models but not this one. Am I missing a sensor somewhere as I can't see one so assume it is load sensed. Any other ideas please?

[EDIT] or possibly a reed switch in the gearing - though I can't see how that would be adjusted unless it is just supposed to stall against the stops for adjustment.
