Electric Window Fitting

Postby JohnPaul » Fri Sep 24, 2004 12:31 pm

Hi all
Is there anyone who would be willing to help me (well fit for me :lol: ) an electric window kit. It,s a conversion kit from manual to power windows. I am willing to pay for your time but not a kings ransom as I'm going on holiday soon and need all my pennies for that. Someone please help I,ve had the kit for ages and I'm desperate to get it fitted. I live in Glasgow(Hillington) but I will travel to you if it is more convenient.
Please oh Pretty Please Please Help
JP
p.s I dont have a clue what i'm doing ,I had a look and well it's beyond me.

It is pretty straightforward.

You need one of those flexible retreaval tools (to get the wire into the door and a new fuse for the electric window circuit. Use the power from the OEM window plug. The fitting into the doors is fairly easy. The easiest way would be buy a OEM window switch

Glad to be of Help John Paul. Hope the car dries out after all the rain the interior took in today.


Cheers Richard..That was indeed one of the more difficult parts threading the cable through the rubber boot to the door, however with the aid of a thin welding rod was managed ok, although most of John Pauls door hinge grease ended up on my hands in the process.

Switches were supplied with the kit and just needed extra wiring to reach the OEM connector.
