Hi everyone.

Just wondered if anyone has encountered this problem.
I replaced the door latch on my 06 boxster yesterday as the old one was badly scratched.
But today when I wound the drivers side window down it wouldn't go back up. The only way I could do it was to lock the car and hold down the fob button. The window switch on the drivers side still operates the passenger side and the window works as it should when the hood is operated. And when doors are opened and closed. If anyone has any ideas be appreciated. Also there are no scraping noises etc when the window comes down.

If it was okay before you replaced the latch it's something to do with the latch or something you disturbed doing it......

If it goes up and down okay with the fob, door handle etc then it's nothing to do with the window itself.

Confident the wiring on the switch is okay? Not stretched doing the door card or anything like that?

Agree

I would be looking at the window switch and the connection from the door card wiring to the control unit first as one of them might not be plugged in correctly.

Did you disconnect the battery while you did the work? Have a look at the window reset procedure in your owners manual Thumb

Hi.
Its been a few weeks since my post regarding my window. Just wondered if anyone knows how to remove the power switches from the door card panel as I suspect this is now the fault.

Remove the door card and they are clipped in from the back.

Usual fault for them is failure of one touch operation although as i mentioned it might not be plugged in fully .
