    Default Xsara Power window removal??

    Hi all

    you might have seen that my window has died I am trying to remove the motor and cable but i can't work out how this is done apart from drilling out a rivit, sounds like overkill to me so any tips would be appreciated.

    I've got no idea about the windows, but you can probably answer this for a Poogoe 206 driver

    Matt,

    Yes, you will have to drill the rivets. There are 5 of them - all the same size - plus another larger one for the door handle I think. As it's just a set of four cables, a motor and two guides, you sort of fold it on itself to get it out once you release the glass from the catch in a guide.

    It's likely that one of the plastic guides let a cable go and allowed them all to wrap around the drum. This can ruin the cables and the tracks on the plastic drum if you do not stop operating the window immediately. The guides are not just a simple lump of plastic, but you could possibly repair it with some difficulty or cannibalise another regulator. For the likely effort involved, particularly if the guide(s), the cables and drum are damaged, you are probably better off buying a new assembly.

    Call a couple more dealers to see if you can get a better price than $600.

    Thanks guys

    I'll have a go tonight and see how I go. I'll put up some photos if I struggle with the rivets.

    Cheers
