Had it booked in with Renault to get it fixed 2 months ago. Told the regulator went in door. Renault pay 75% as manufactures fault. £100 for 25% tho. The parts were washed away in Japan by earthquake so still waiting. Had a phone call 2 days ago saying they are no longer making them for used cars only new ones. I don't believe that. So it could b years till they get new parts. Not sure wot to do now. Might try the WD40. I was told to get a 2nd hand regulator from a scap yard & get someone to fit it?

Hi Heather, Ive managed to get the door panel off, (just hoping I can remember how to put it back on).

Ive got the control box out. Their was no water inside my car so does that mean I have a different problem?

Ive still sprayed it with WD40.

My box is more like the link you put at top of page
http://www.renaultforums.co.uk/showthread.php?t=81895&highlight=window+reset&page=6
but it still the same.

I will have to wait to fit it to see if that was the problem. Fingers crosses.

It is still most likely that and yeah a good spray of WD40 is great and won't do it any harm anyway! Fingers crossed for you that this will sort the problem!! Keep me posted please :d

Hi again Is the black control Box the same as a complete regulator? Cause Renault was gonna fit a new one for me.

Also they locked my window so it wouldnt work while i was waiting for the part to come in. Im wondering if it will still be locked or is their a way I can unlock it?

Thanks.

Yep the black box is the complete regulator! Were they gonna do it under warrenty? Cuz the normally charge for the part and occasionally the motor too! If they are doing the whole lot for nothing I'd put it back together and let them sort it out! :d Not sure how they would have locked it but you could phone and ask them and they should tell you what they did to lock it.

Ok thanks. im gonna put it back together tomoro as day off, so fingers crossed. If its locked ill call renault. Anyone whos on facebook i found this group. Great for advise. Renault Window Regulator Fault!!! If mine still dosnt work I think I've got to buy another regulator off eBay. No I'm not under warranty, it's only 4 years old tho & they say they are no longer making the parts for used cars. I don't believe them. X

Since its not under warranty I would ring and ask before you put it all back together in case you need to to something to the window, that way you don't have to take the door off again! :d

I rang them today cause they had locked my window too and they said they are still making the parts, (not what i was first told) they just had a backlog from Jan.
But ive done mine myself & saved 25% £100. :d
