    Eek drivers side window problem

    window works fine when you keep your finger on to open fully ot tap it gradually.
    BUT when putting back up it sometimes goeas up no problems OR (majority of the tome) only goes up gradually , same with remote window closeing .
    is this a dodgy switch or ????? thanks

    Do you mean it doesn't go up/down automatically when you hold the button for a second and let go?

    Sounds like sticky window runners to me that need cleaning/lubricating.

    Open window fully, get a can of WD40 with the straw still attached, and give it good ol' squirt in between the velvety pieces...ahem!
