Dodgy window - Megane CC

Hi folks.

It's my turn to have a problem with an electric window in a Megane Coupe Convertible.

Mine is a 2005 model.

Started with an odd chattering noise, moved onto the window it self being unreliable and now both have combined. It's most obvious when driving along with the roof down, the rean nearside window won't stay down and pops up. But then it won't stay closed when the roof is up. It's not loose.

Any ideas - I'm thinking of fitting the aftermarked black box because it feels like there's an electrical gremlin, but I've heard it said that if there's a chattering noise it's likely just the regulator.

Anyone else had this? I'm up to having a go replacing the whole shooting match just don't want to buy both if I only need one.

By the way - my dealer volunteered that it was a known fault and if the service history was up to scratch (hmmm, one or two home services) they'd bay 74% of the repair bill (worst case scenario 750), but if it wasn't the 'known fault' I'd have to pay at least the 65 diagnosis work...

What to do - car's only worth 2.5k and I forked out 650 for service and cambelt last winter (baulked at the 300 to find and fix an oil leak).

What next!

Re: Dodgy window - Megane CC

Had the exact same problem on a 05 Megane Scenic last month , chattering noise then later on window was intermittent, sometimes going down/up by itself. It was the window regulator ( the small black Temic box that is connected to the motor ) , you can get a third party one on EBAY for about 25 euro . Will need to take door card off to access ,someone has a video on youtube on how to do this. One thing about the 3rd party one ( mine came from Portugal ) is that the Renault's feature where you can press down fully on the switch for a second and the window drives fully up or down is not supported , ie. need to keep your finger on it as it drives up or down.
