So driving into work this morning, winding the driver side window up following a cheery good morning to security- it made a graunching noise. sounded like something was in the window track and it sent itself back down.
when i parked up- i opened the door and tried again; it made the same noise then stopped altogether. i was able to drag it into position by hand.
I'm guessing cable failure; what's the consensus?
.................her timing is impeccable! nooo

rugulator; i'm thinning on top but have never considered one if these before!
Is the regulator supplied with the cable? definitely sounds like a cable either going or gone.

If you buy a cable for a boxter you can replace it yourself. I know, I did it on mine, but beware, keep the metal adjuster piece with serrated edge and it is a major BITCH to do! If I have to do it again I will buy the complete assembly Grin

Part number is 987 542 076 00

You may want to replace the door membrane as once removed the seal is broken and you can end up with soggy door cards Mad

Try to reuse the membrane if you can as they are about £180+vat I think. You are better off getting x10 spare clips as they can equally cause the membrane to be compromised if not reset and seated correctly in place when the door card is refitted ie the lower ones form part of the waterproof seal with the membrane. If the membrane seal is compromised on refitting you can use a silicon sealant as you only need to seal the lower half Wink ps you can’t test it without the door card in place as you need the clips in place so you just have to fit it all back and run a hose over the window when the door is closed to check to see if the lower carpet gets wet Thumb

Remember to take the little stop out of the bottom, its the same part for a boxster and 911. The 911 needs the little window stop bung to be removed, if its not then the window wont go all the way down.

Guess how I found out about this Laughing
