Re: Renault Modus - Electric Window Problems
I had the same problem and decided as I could still hear the motor when I pressed the buttons but got no movement (and my window kept falling in to the door!) that it was probably the clip too. I ordered a pair online for about 4 quid.
I opened up the door by unscrewing the torx screw in the door handle, the 2 at the bottom of the door panel and by removing first the plastic in the small handle/pocket in the door which revealed a screw.
I then pried up the handle, door handle and electric window and mirror control.
Then using brute force I pried off the door panel. This revealed a white polystyrene membrane which I cut through and found the dreaded blue clip sitting in the bottom of the door!
I then had to unscrew 3 bolts which hold the window mechanism to the door. this then comes out pretty easily. Then I used this video to replace the clip and reattach the wires to the motor. It's all pretty self explanatory;
I'm an 8(ish) stone woman who has never attempted anything like this before (apart from replacing a headlight in the Modus which is a whole other story!!) and it wasn't overly physical or difficult. Took me about 4 hours start to finish but it would only take me an hour if I had to do it again I imagine.
Hope this helps someone!
