Get the window to return to the fully closed position and LEAVE IT well alone.. Further attempts at opening and close the window will result in DAMAGE to the mechanical parts within the door.


Question :- What normally happens to cause the window to fail ??

Answer :- Initally the cable which drives the system snaps or frays due to corrosion of the cable itself.. ( think bicycle brake cable btw )

Question :- What do I do now

Renault Answer :- Replace Complete Window Regulator Unit please sir that'll be . + VAT - Labour saving technique which increases their profit margin..

Laguna II Owner Answer :- Look to see which parts commonly fail and solve the problem.. A labour intensive repair but ultimately more affordable for your average punter..

I have found a friendly local outfit 20 years in the trade very helpful and picture below have all been taken today at their premises.

Below is a picture showing the regulator mechanism..




The two silver coloured sections are the runners that the window runs up and down on..

The motor is on the right. The motor drives this pulley..



This plastic pulley can become damaged in the event of a cable failure but can be removed and replaced.

Here you can see the new replacement cable fitted to the pulley.

The regulator sits between the inner and outer door skins and is held in place in five locations via a threaded bar and securing nut..

Behind the door card - regulator removed



Behind the door card - regulator in place



Example Fixing hole for regulator..



Another part subject to possible replacement includes this clip which connects the window to the runners.



Hopefully this info is helpful.

I have not complied a complete how to as the job ( to my mind ) is best left to the experts.

However if you in and around the Milton Keynes area ( i,e, herts, beds, bucks ) and you want a professional repair for around a 1/3 of the price of going to Renault please give these guys a call..




They also supply window tints, sunroofs to a very high standard, parkig sensors. Ask for Paul and tell them you found them via the forums..

That's unfortunately what happens when the former user deletes them off whatever his Hosting site is.

Velour top section and ABS Bottom section probably separate?

Panel Glue on bottom section?

Reason:- Drivers window dropped out of runner or pulley wire broken. Need to look-see & Repair

Re: Renault Laguna II - Interiors - Electric Window Problems - Regulator Repairs

I don't know if this will help but lift both front window switches together for about 20 seconds that should cause it to reset.If it persist look for battery connection or loose wiring.

The winder cables can be bought on ebay for under 15, I have done 2 now easy !! @30 mins /side but only any good if you motor working wont fix the stepping but worth knowing if they want to charge you that much.

Re: Renault Laguna II - Interiors - Electric Window Problems - Regulator Repairs

All sorts of different failure mechanisms I've had.
Mine has had rust seizing and hence breaking a cable, and later failure of same system sheared the three lugs off the spiral cable wheel.
When I got the car, the blue sliders had broken so the cable had pulled out of the slider.
And the other less likely failure from when I got my car is a failure that makes the windows "only work sometimes" is the motor missing completely.

So for me, the failures are spread around the system (though I do think the rust cable might be common) and so I keep the unused/unbroken bits from one repair to support the next repair.

Definitely agree with the comment earlier; if you hear nasty noises, get the window closed and leave it alone until you do the repair. Minimises the damage, and extends the time before panic to close the window causes even more damage.
