    Default how hard to fit rear electric windows in facelift SRi

    Hi All
    I have been googling to see how easy it is to fit rear electric windows in a facelift SRi if it doesnt have the correct loom going through the car (i.e. only 1 connector instead of 2) but I am finding it difficult to find information on this.

    I really want to do this upgrade but as im finding it difficult to find examples where this has been done I am not able to make a decision on whether or not I should try it.

    Has anyone without the full loom done this modification?
    Cheers
    David

    if you havent got the loom then it is a rather time consuming job...not for the novice..
    I,m sure there was a How2 for this (maybe just with the loom)

    this might help a little ..shame you are so far away as Plasma fits them .

    if I can get a full loom can I just add the missing wires? Is this a huge job to do?

    03 preface you should have the extra wires, if you do its a pretty easy modification. Check here to see if you have the wires.
