There are a couple of sellers on e Bay who will supply complete mechs but only the 2 or 6 pin types your only other chance is a breaker
Hi Mike,
Sorry for the delayed reply - I haven't been on the forum much lately.
If I can remove the electronics box as you say, do you know if the contents are "potted" or not? If not maybe there's a chance I can fix it (30 years + in electronics).
My problem is definately the electronics rather than the motor or the regulator. It's now got to the point where if I close the window fully it always re-opens itself, and resetting does no good at all. Up to now I've had no success finding a used replacement, and frankly I'd rather wedge the window shut with a piece of wood than pay Renault their absurd prices!
