    hi guys my passenger side window has all of a sudden stopped dropping the glass as the door opens....the window itself still goes up and down just not when you open the door....could someone enlighten me on how this works e.g is it a switch, sensor thats is faulty and where would the switch/sensor be??

    thanx in advance

    I've read about this before check the door there should be a button/sensor have a look for it and check that it hasnt been worn away over time just seeing if i can get you more ifo on where it is but if it is this which seems quite common then its an easy fix. like i say i'll dig some stuff out and post in a bit

    Edit:- it gets worn away over time with the door opening and closing
