Re: Renault Modus - Electric Window Problems

Hi, I have just fixed this same problem on my wife's Modus - the broken part is the clip that holds the glass to the regulator and cannot be bought separately. Personally speaking the Renault part is very poorly designed and manufactured. I bought a replacement regulator from which is far better made. It cost 60 and is not not too hard to fit - I did it in about 2 hours from start to finish and I am no qualified mechanic - just a reasonably competent DIYer. Two hints you cannot get the inner membrane off as it will just tear, but you can split it carefully with a knife and peel it back enough to remove the old regulator and fit the new one, then just gaffer tape it back together when you have finished, and when working inside the door beware there are sharp edges in there you could shave with

Hope this helps someone.
