Anyone bothered to ask them ?
I took the drivers door off yesterday to sort out a squeeky window... turned out the cables were dry and causing the squeek in the hot weather - they had gone tight in the heat.
I used finger sized dollops of molly grease on the cables and blue runners...
Now there is a quiet whiiiirrrrrr as the window goes down and not a god awful screaming!
The next bit is to replace the passenger side one that has snapped.. the "up" cable is still ok and it's holding the window up.
Any pointers on a cheap supplier ? How long is the "down" cable supposed to be.. ?
I think it's the 6 pin variety - the one with anti-pinch - is that right ?
Currently in Dozzer's garage:
I traded the 2001 Laguna II Privelege 1.8 16v for a Toyota Carolla with all the trimmings. MUCH better :-))
