Smile Renault Megane II 2003 Passenger Electric Window Fault

hi ,
ive recently bought a 2003 53reg' Renault Megane and bought it with a faulty passeneger electric window. Ive had my friend who is a trained mechanic take a look at it and he assumed it was the motor as their was literally no sort of power, but when ringing round various places in order of purchasing a motor they are either really hard to get hold of or apparently thats not what the problem is as they seem to be good in the later megans? or so i have been told. So now i have been looking at various websites in order of purchasing one of these window regulators or mechanisms which i have been advised to? but i havnt got a clue what the problem is with the window and if this is what i need and what it will do? and how much should i be paying? i got hold of someone on ebay earlier today with a brand new window regulator and mechanism but with no motor which they were selling for 80 everything in under warrenty but not sure if this is what i need? i also rung my local renault dealer in search of advice and then i was told it would be 85 for a diagnostic which i havnt got!!!! ive seen a few threads on this site which were really helpful but dont quite give me the information i need so i hope someone can help me with the matter! i am also new to the site, so im not 2 sure what im doing as yet hope to hear from someone soon!

I'm not familiar with your particular car but a lot of Renaults seem to have a similar set up. There's an electric motor inside the door and it operates a cable system (called the regulator) to move the window. These cables can snap but usually you would still hear the motor click etc when the switch is pressed.

If there's no noises etc when the switch is pressed I personally wouldn't automatically suspect the regulator. The best thing to do is to strip the door panel off and have a look - if its a broken cable you'll spot it quite easily.

If the cables are ok then you need to start checking the power feed/switches/wiring/motor.

You could try posing your question on the Megane II owners forum:

There are several threads about window problems so you may find your answer by doing a search. A lot of owners have had regulators replaced under warranty but I doubt that Renault would contribute anything at all for a car that is 5 years old.
You should also register with 'my Renault' on the Renault UK website at:

This should let you know if there are any outstanding recalls on your vehicle.

p.s. Welcome to the forum.
