2004 S-Type Drivers door electric window has died


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

How goes it?

Sitting in "Rupert" in the garage, testing water pump fix (see previous posts) when exhaust hinted it was time to shut the window. Pressed button as usual. Window went up half way and stopped. Pressed again. Went up a bit more, then three inches from the top it came back down of its own accord. Multiple presses got it an inch from the top, but no movement at all from there. Not up or down. It's dead. The other windows are working OK. This has happened once or twice before, but never totally ceased to function.

Anyone got any suggestions? Is this a common S-Type problem? I ought to say the garage is quite damp, and the window had been left open for 2/3 weeks. Has it stuck and should I trickle penetrating oil down the channel? I am OK with taking the door card off. Had to do it to replace a rear view door mirror once.

Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Kindest regards
