- Very random techie car question…
My 52 plate Focus drivers window motor gave up, turned out it had seized from water ingress.
Strip, clean, lube, rebuild and jobs a good un (and it’s quicker and quieter than before).
Which means the OEM quality parts that lasted 10 years haven’t been replaced with tat…
The hardest bit of the job is getting the assembly out when the window won’t lower, freeing up the motor is easy.Posted 4 years agotthewSubscriber
Could just as easily be the switch, or some broken wiring, (where it bends going through the door possibly) or a fuse, (though it’s probable something else would have stopped working, unlikely each window has its own feed).
More fault finding needed before you splurge 30 quid on a part that may be wrong I think. Hit more stuff with your hammer, or for the electrical bits, poke with a screwdriver and nod sagely.Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
I’ve got a 2004 Mk1 Focus with a driver’s side electric window that doesn’t do anything.
I hit it with a hammer, which didn’t fix it.
As I have no idea what it is that’s busted, thought I’d buy the whole actuator assembly + motor for the sake of £30.
…but the eBay listing talks about 8 pin motor. I have no idea what it’s talking about – is it the attachment to the slidy bits, or something that attached to the switchy thing? Do I need to care?
Ebay product matching thing says it’ll match the model, but I’m just a bit dubious about this pin business?
