    Default Rear Electric window issues

    Hello Guys

    I picked up my Veccy elegance last week and everything was working fine, Now it seems to have a fault with the back windows, as I can open and close the front and back windows from the drivers side controls, but the back windows can only close they wont allow my daughters to open them .

    Not that its a bad thing but would like them to work.

    Probably dirty contacts on the switches
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    When I bought my Vec the passenger window switch wouldn't work, a strip down and clean with contact cleaner / supersolve fixed it a treat. 2 years later still working!!!

    I had a similar problem with the driver's side front on mine - would go up fine, but down took several (hard) presses of the button.

    Pop out the switch, take it apart, give the contacts a spray with contact cleaner and dry with kitchen roll. Then reassemble and refit. 10 minute job and good as new
