    Always been a bit iffy since I owned the car, in terms of - it always went down, but going up sometimes it would randomly change and go back down, other times it was fine. Yesterday it just stopped working alltogether.. The only thing you can hear when you press the down button is a quiet click from behind the doorcard.. guessing this is the regulator?? ANy tips appreciated

    If your putting the window up, and it goes back down again, then the anti-trap has kicked in - You'll just need to grease the runners.

    As for them not working now... Start with the fuse box, check all fuses.

    sounds like the motor is knackered, remove the door card and check for power at the motor plug with a test light as you press the switch up and down.

    with the going up problem like the other user said its the anti trap kicking in. firstly try the switch from the passenger side Ive had them before at fault where the regulator clicks. if its still the same i'd get a new regulator with a motor as they are comon for bending also if its had a new one before then it might not have been lined up properly causing it to come back down.

    with the fuse if the passengers working then its not fuse as they are on the same circuit.

    I have the exact same problem with my passenger window. Checked fuses, swapped switch etc.. Thing is mine worked again for a few days then packed in again. I can hear the clicking sound from the door like yours. If you get it sorted can you let me know what it was? Cheers mate!!
