    Default Rear Electric windows on 2006 facelift

    This is in the monster rear electric window thread but it's easy to miss my (vital) questions in there. Thought I'd try a new thread for it!

    I've got my driver's door switch fitted. Easy enough I guess.

    Taken off the o/s rear card and now I'm stumped. I think I have a number of problems:

    There seem to be a number of pins missing from the wire coming to the rear doors from the front. This would explain why my switch won't light when I test it, I'm assuming the necessary connections aren't there. I've got the looms from salvage with the regs, so they are okay (and testing with them reveals the door locks and speakers work fine). My guess would be that Vx put more penny pinching in place at some point on the facelifts and fitted less wiring than before. Below is a pic of my connector in the car:



    You can see I only have 1 pin in the two slots at the bottom. There appear to be many of the middle row of pins missing, plus some of the top row. If anyone with a facelift that has fitted rear leccy windows (Paul?), or someone that has them fitted as standard could compare that would be great, thanks!

    Even if I get that bit working, can someone give me the part numbers for an o/s door moisture film thingy and the plastic 'triangle' that fits at the rear of the door next to the window. I managed to crack mine taking the card off!

    Once I have that all sorted I need a part number for the wiring cable that goes to the rear door from wherever it comes from (where it comes from would be handy too!).

    Finally I need someone to explain how to remove the old windy regulator and replace with the leccy version. I can see I need to remove the rivets somehow, but I'm at a loss as to how I am going to connect the actual moving part of the leccy to the glass without demolishing the whole door!!

    I'm starting to think this is a no-go on my facelift, it looks like half the wiring has been removed, and if I fit the leccy regulators and can't power them I have 2 knackered windows!!

    Many many thanks to anyone who can help me here!!!!!

    m8 if you aint got the extra cables running to that plug then you got no
    chance in wiring it unless you spend loads a cash buying full rear body
    harnesses and even then its not guaranteed that it still work,if its not
    wired then dont touch it thats wot i say but just to confirm you need
    to get someone else to take piccy of their plug that runs upto the b pillar.
    very surprised its not wired considering its an sri.


    am i right saying that plug in piccy plugs into the male door loom plug

    I'm sorry to say, but I'm kinda glad this issue has been brought up, I think my new one is likely to be an SRi, and I wanted to motorize the rears as well, at least now I know I'm looking for a Design or Elite now.

    Yeah, looks like I'm ****ed.

    Thanks for the pic Andy, confirms my suspicions. Although you don't seem to have more of the other contacts present than mine. Hmmph.

    Look out for looms, regs and switches in the for sale section soon!

    Can someone confirm if I've got these part numbers right to repair my efforts so far:

    2441 1716 - Plastic thing next to window
    0917 8600 - Moisture seal?

    Cheers.

    Just to add a bit of confusion!

    I've just had a look at the plugs in my SRI facelift (without rear electric windows) and it DOES have the 2 pins in the bottom. It looks the same as Andyvecs.

    So it's not always true that the facelifts don't have the full set of pins
