    Hi guys and gals, just a quickie. :help:
    Was driving down the motorway on Friday night :drive1: and went to put my electric window up, but when it got to the top, it came back down again (as though something was stuck at the top) tried it again, and it worked fine. Its done it about 5 or 6 times since, but today I have noticed that my passenger side has started doing it too. :no:
    I have had a look, and there is nothing obstructing the window, so does anyone have any idea what it could be?
    Had a quick look and not seen that anyone has had any similar problems - does this mean another trip back to the dealers? :banghead2

    Could possibly be window regulators as i think this is a really common problem on the leons and mk 4 ibizas mate, do a search under window regulators, sure this will help point you in the right direction, an yes, id say you will be going to see you local stealer...hopefully its under warrenty...:)

    Yeh my windows did the same then one day I couldnt close the window at all. Stealer changed the window regulator on the drivers side and all was fixed.

    I can assure you its not just the Ibiza's mate, my LCR has had...coil packs, water in the passenger footwell, snapped window cable, dodgey temp sensor....(touch wood) no MAF as yet..so its not just you mate..lol....

    Is your car Lowered and/or are you doing it on a bumpy road Han? Mine sometimes does this on bumpy roads, as the anti trapping mecahnism is actuating as it thinks someone is trying to hit the windows down.

    Just an idea, good luck with it.

    I was going to say exactly the same, hard suspension over bumps can activate the anti trapping reverse system....:rolleyes:

    got the same issue at the moment with mine. Took it to the dealers, who apparently reset the window, but after a few tests it just went back to not working. Told me they would order in a new motor :/ and that i would have to bring it back.

    No mine's not lowered, not got round to that bit yet hehe.
    And yes, I do go over speed bumps and kerbs etc every day, never thought that that may be the cause, guess I'll just have to take them a bit easier next time :think: ;)

    Just been talking to the b/f and he said that he thinks its a problem with the window seals, as the windows are going all the way up to the top before they come back down again?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Ive noticed mine doing it occasionally when you get to speeds of about 80-100 but just thought it was the pressure from the air speed ? :confused:
