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

The mechanical side of the window winding mechanism suffers from lack of lubricant on the various parts, especially those hidden right up in the top of the door. It eventually busts the wire ropes that move the glass. This needs the whole mechanism replacing. I got a new one from Euro Car parts.
The electronics are sensitive to the load the glass puts on them, so lack of lube might show up as the window stopping, it should sense if its jamming or has a person's hand in the way.
WD40 first, money later.

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

Hi!

I have previously repaired driver side twice. once garage did it and second time I ordered kit off ebay and replaced. (the motor works) Both kits of ebay have broken after a while. So I was wondering if anyone can recommend a specific kit that has lasted. This last kit looks like it the plastic wheel that holds the wire has been of bad plastic and the ruts are broken so the wire has found other ways round it.

Also on the mounting the kit part: Most of that seems easy but one thing that i struggle with every time is the fastening of actual windowpain to mechanism with those plastic clips. They are very hard to clip on and seem to not stay on so well??

Thanks,
Robin

Just thought id say that i went to the breakers yard eventually. Found a similar laguna ii and got the original wires+frame construction out of there and so far it is a lot better performance than the ones i got of ebay previously. Smooth and no jerky slack. Original plastic parts are also better quality. So thats an option if your struggling with bad ebay parts.

I think the prob with the window opening in stages is due to it needing resetting. Off hand I cant remember the process but details are in the handbook and it must be simple as I did it.

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

Just repaired both front windows and would like to share the experience.
The passenger side went months ago and I got one from a breakers and it remained in the boot (I don't sit in the passenger seat so very low priority). Then last week the drivers side went immediate action required so boot up flea bay. Mistakenly it was set to highest price first and so I discovered that there is a company selling regulators (No motor) for 928 and they have sold 97 is there really that many people with more money than sense. Went down the list and got a pattern part regulator for 18.89 inc postage. Have now fitted both the new regulator to the drivers side and the 2nd hand entire unit to the passenger side. Fiddly and it involved quite a bit of swearing but approach it methodically and all will be well. I found getting the clips off the window difficult due to shortage of room so bent up a piece off scrap hooked it over the clip and got better purchase.The window needs to be down if its stuck up you can cut the cables to drop it but make sure its supported first or it will drop and break. The original regulator was held on by 5 studs and nuts, the new part had 3 three studs and 2 threaded holes so I needed 2 bolts, luckily I had some the right size. When taking the door card off (2 screws at the bottom and 1 behind the plastic plug in the door handle) I had to cut through the foam filler strip. Putting the door card back I needed to replace the foam filler and discovered the 5mm foam draught excluder sold in 1 shops works, you can get the foam with both sides adhesive on flea bay but I didn't have time.
