Swearing alert!

Post by cavmad » Mon Aug 29, 2005 3:11 pm

F*"$%ng b*ll&%ks. Wound the (electric) passenger window down on my estate and it won`t go back up. Three and half hours later it`s now wedged in with a piece of wood. I`m not a happy bunny as I`ve replaced the motor and the mechanism and it still only goes down and not up. I also used a spare section of wiring and umpteen switches which I knew worked well but it ain`t having it.
Come in to see how my car was doing on eBay and the t*ssers have removed the listing because I stated Paypal adds 4%. Like they don`t make enough money out of people anyway the robbing b*st*rds. Now going to relist it and I`m not accepting Paypal anymore, knackers to them.
What a day I`m having, be glad to go back to work tomorrow.

Thankyou mate, I`ve just received an e-mail from the chap who I bought it off and he says the same. I should have checked on here before I spent hours messing about with it so another valuable lesson learned!
Appreciate the help though, many thanks.

I got mine shut by having the wife press her button to close then carefully move my door open and closed till it made contact and closed the window.

Where straight-feed 12v motors on the BX are concerned, I nowadays tend to go for the jugular: disconnect them and then use my trusty booster pack and a crocodile-clip arrangement to test motor action. I can't remember the exact wiring arrangments, but I've got an old RD loom that I might be able to dismember for you, if it's a practical task, though I strongly suspect it isn't. I'll look anyway.
