    Default Xantia, what's happened there?

    Sounded like smashed glass inside the drivers door.
    The electric winder is now separated from the glass and the glass is free and can be pushed or pulled by hand. I can hear the electric motor working, but it no longer moves the glass.

    id take a look but don't know the correct way to remove the door card/lining.

    Hi Adrian,
    My guess is you'll be looking for one of these
    CITROEN XANTIA WINDOW REGULATOR REPAIR CLIP FRONT-RIGHT | eBay

    at worst maybe the full kit, but more likely just the clip

    Or the easy way is to come to us and buy a second hand window reg.

    Look carefully around armrest, you will see screws very cunningly hidden. Remove the lock button, follow the correct sequence when refitting. Remove the trim around the handle which reveals another fixing screw. be careful with the wiring for the window switches, they are a bit fragile. Carefully pop all the fixing plugs around the door card, remove the trim from the top and the door card should be good to remove. You will find the plastic clip that attaches the lifting wire to the window is broken.

    I would take the offending mechanism out and send off to a company that specialises in the repair of such items. Electric Life in Sydney is where I sent ours to, but there must be one in Melbourne. There is plenty of work for companies fixing power window systems, they break ever since they moved over to the wire system.

    As above the clip falls out ends up in the bottom of the door
    Door card just needs to be loosened so the you can cut a slot in the plastic wind sealing plastic sheet
    You just fiddle the window into position with the winder at about half open and refit the clip
    There is a locator for the top of the glass which can slip out
    Use some gaffer to tape up the slit otherwise your wind noise will increase

    I had a window winder mechanism rebuilt by a "specialist" through the auto electrician next door. When it came back the first time it was back to front and would have suited the passenger's side. The second time it came back, the plug that clipped in to the wiring was incompatible. Looked more like a Mitsubishi plug. Rather than sending it back, the auto electrician gave me a compatible plug and asked me to do it myself as he had no faith in the "specialist" and no love of French cars.

    I think the "piss off and don't come back" was a comment aimed at the dog and not me.

    Easy enough to pull the trim off but it looks like a trick to get a replacement regulator on.
    thats the next stage. No idea which way the cable goes back.

    Looking at the door lining, that door is a virgin. mine has strips of grey foam stuck together with gaffer tape.

    Regulator is replaced and window working. I have to fit the door trim back.

    The foam insulation you can see in the picture was sealed on with a low adhesive silicon. A sensible move by the manufacturer because the foam come off the door without tearing the foam apart.

    What is this removable adhesive silicon? I need a waterproof adhesive seal but, its very likely I'll be doing this job again some day. If not me then the next owner.

    Hi Adrian,
    I did a search for a suitable product a while ago as I plan to use on D(v)Special's inner door vinyl seals.

    Best I've came up with (and I've not actually tried it yet) is a Honda product 'Door Trim Adhesive' Part No. 08712-0003 you should be able to buy from any Honda Service/Parts supplier.

    Cheers
