Re: Scenic2 Window Winder fix - with Pix

You mention a software reset. Is this what my motor needs? It went past it's usual end stop when the plastic bracket broke and now it won't respond at all. To do the repair, I took the controller off the motor and applied 12V direct to the motor terminals. This moved the cable drum back to a near-the-top position from its way-off-the-top position when removed. I glued the bracket back together and drilled a few guide holes. Then I threaded a piece of steel garden wire (about 1mm dia.) through the holes and twisted it tight to reinforce the plastic bracket. It's all gone back together fine, but still no response from the motor.

Re: Scenic2 Window Winder fix - with Pix

Each end of the 'track' has rubber stops to dampen a hard stop for the of these may have been dislodged (thus causing your slider to go right off the rails in the first place) These stops are a simple interference fit only. The software reset, as I described, is simply to reset the window action to continuous- without the reset the window jerks only in time with switch usage: on/off. So, if you have no response other tnan 12v direct I suggest switch or, the logic of your cable winding.

Re: Scenic2 Window Winder fix - with Pix

i have intimate knowledge of the window winders on my scenic

the first one to go was rear passenger side, when i took the door apart i found the plastic slider in bits at the bottom of the door - it had obviously failed before, cos it had been plastic welded back together, that time i managed to find a replacement slider on ebay and the wires were ok so it was easy enough to put back together and i've had no bother with it since. for the poster above, sorry i don't have any pics, but i remember it being reasonably straight forward to work out and not much different from the front window photo's earlier in this thread. sorry i know that doesn't help much

the second one to go was the drivers door, again, the slider had broken, this time it had mangled the wires too. back onto ebay , got another new slider and also a kit for cutting my own wires to length with stops and stuff, i struggled to get the wires to the exact length cos my old ones were so mangled, and when i put it back together it showed cos they weren't really tensioned enough, so it was no suprise when it failed again a few months later.

this time, the slider was ok, just one of the wire stops had sheared off, so i bought another kit off ebay and made up a new wire, this time i got the lengths more accurate, and it all went together well and looked good

so i'm quite disappointed that this week, the drivers door has failed for the THIRD time. i haven't taken the door panels off again yet (only cos my heater resistor pack and block connector are my number one priority at the minute) but i'm guessing its the stopper off the wire again

so i'm wondering what i'm doing wrong now. i could buy another kit off ebay and make some more wires up, but i don't want to be doing it for the 4th time in another 3 months.

the only thing I can think, is either i made the tension too tight this time, or i didn't do a good job on the heating process when i hardened the adhesive stuff

anyone else used these wire kits off ebay ? - link below

Re: Scenic2 Window Winder fix - with Pix

TBH at that price I'd be thinking that a new (pattern) regulator at under 40 was a bargain
