    Hi iv been having problems with my electric windows before and since having my gm5 module repaired, the problem is my passager rear widows works the opposite way around to the other windows which is not a prob but cant set the alarm via the fob as it make all the windows go close expect my rear passenger which starts to open!!!!!

    iv tried unplugging all the switchs one by one and still the same so could i just simply swap the wires over on the electric motor??

    also i have noticed looking through a copy of my hayes car manual i seem to have the motor from a left hand electric widow i my right door as the wires match the diagram for the left hand side, as i said earlier can i cut the red and black wires on the motor and swap them over and will this make the motor work in reverse?

    Worth a shot, do it with plenty of space incase you want to swap back.
