    Default

    Switches
    Looms
    Regulators
    Door card not required as you can fill the hole with a blanking plug, like the ones that cover the screws in the passenger footwell (Trademarked Maverick!!!)

    However I believe there is an issue with the facelifts not having enough pin connections to the rear door, requiring another new loom from the driver door to the passenger door.

    I think Lofty69 had this issue as he has a facelift too, search the forums as I think he has made reference to it and ditched the idea. I have a pre facelift and all that was required was the above list

    Cheers

    Yep, undo the door plug (just push in the blue ring and pull) and check the number of pins at the bottom.. if there's only one you need additional wiring .

    It's pretty easy to do to be honest. Hardest part for me was trying to get the blasted wind up mechanism out of the hole!!

    Be careful when pulling the door card off, the clips are tight and it really does need some GENTLE pulling/rocking in order to free them. Have done it couple of times now and found it easiest if you pop the one furthest away from the hinges then with the window all the way down, put your fingers in the gap left and rock the panel free.

    Mine was on pre-facelift so it looks like the facelift model doesn't have the loom, but it is worth checking before you go any further.

    The other thing to check before hand is that you have access to someone who knows what they are doing with TECH2 as it'll all need enabling via the onboard computers.

    HTH,
    Andy

    Yep, concur with this, my regs were in different positions when I got them, so I had my rear TECH2'ed before I started install, the guy at one of my many dealers knew what to do, obviously the only thing he couldn;t do was test as I hadn't done the install yet.

    There is a little check you can do though, if you have the switch installed in the driver door, when it is selected to rear it will still operate the fronts. Once TECH2'ed it no longer will and the red light on the "de-activate rear windows" button also lights up.
