    Anyway, when we had Celeste CX, one of the first jobs was repairing the lazy driver's window regulator. It was as Rob T suggested failing electrical cable - the cable had in fact broken internally and the insulation was not far off too.

    Also a lazy battery or alternator can slow down window movement. Do the windows go up and down faster with the engine running at >1500rpm?

    Then clean the switch internals while you're at it. Remove the switch and douse with isopropyl alcohol.
    The Americans call them regulators. The motor would then be a regulator motor!
    Cheers Gerry

    Hi,

    the battery, alternator and Regulator are fine (the window dropped down when I removed the motor and the grease is still good)
    so, I will put the motor back together, and re-do the wiring. After 25 years, I imagine all of the wiring will have some corrosion in it.

    cheers

    The speed of the motors doesn't change at any revs so, wiring.
    And that is another difficulty. How do you access wiring in the a and b pillars??

    B Pillar trims are held with small plastic clips. They Break easily! Be careful!
    A pillars can be accessed more easily. But you mat need to remove the dash panels on either side. The metal flocked panels only!

    Just another thought. The switches themselves suffer from old / dirty / corroded contacts internally. The switch carries full motor current (about 5 amps?) so high resistance contacts can have a significant effect. I have pulled the switches apart for cleaning in the past. But I have also had good success with pressure pack contact cleaners. No need to dismantle the switch. Just poke the tube into the internals and spray liberally. Electrical contact cleaner is available in small pressure packs from places like Jaycar.

    check the relays around the battery too.... I bet the voltage drop is across the relays and there power feed. The switches seem to either work ............ or not work.
