Re: Window regulator

I guess it's feasible that twisting the cables may get it to work, but I wouldn't waste your time trying to get it to work, just go and buy the correct part.

I just bought some for the Scenic from a Renault main dealer, £4.51 inc VAT for a pair (OS and NS rear)

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.

Re: Window regulator

Re: Window regulator

The window regulators are handed - that why they sell them either left or right handed. Me thinks somone is having you on. Did the company you bought ot off offer both types??

Then again someone has magically found a way round the problem - if so its the first I've heard of it.

Exclamation Re: Window regulator

Here's what I'd do:
  1. Note to self: remember we're in Britain and our N/S is everybody else's O/S in EU;
  2. Go back to the ****** that said me to twist the cables to twist his head off and demand for a full refund;
  3. Go to a reputable Renault dealer and order the proper part (or take a trip to the nearest scrappy, take the right one out from a similar car and save a bundle ).
Seriously, it won't work.

I went to a scrappy, chose another Megane Mark I (it doesn't have to be a Scenic, you won't believe how many parts are the same), after 4 hex screws to take the door card off, 2 hex bolts to take the window guide off, 5 bolts to take the whole mech out and a tenner to the scrappy, I had the proper part.

I often get spares from the scrapyard, for non-vital parts, they are more likely to fit without problems.

Also, the practice to remove the part from the scrap car is a good exercise to know how to put it back in your car.

To date, I got:
  • Both rear door locks (replacement)
  • N/S window actuator (repl.)
  • Various engine management sensors (repl.)
  • Drawer under passenger seat (add-on)
  • Boot cubby holes doors (add-on)
  • N/S direction indicator (repl.)
  • O/S direction repeater (repl.)
  • N/S tweeter (repl.)
I have spent in total £ 62. Yes, I am that peculiar to keep an account of my expenditure at the scrappy.

A good Haynes helps a lot.
