Re: Renaults made of knitted gossamer or what?

Hi noel, I've got the door panel off and found that the steel cable had unwound itself all over the door. I had to take the assembly out and can now see what happened.

The sprung plastic grooved part at the bottom of the runner jumped out of it's seating when I slammed the door. This allowed the cable to become loose, so when I jabbed the window up button and heard a grinding noise, that was the cable chewing itself up.

The green clip is also split.

I could rewind it but the cable looks rather chewed, off to ebay I go for a new cable and a clip....

********, ********, ********.
