Bummer...... I highly doubt you will able to move that window without breaking something. You need the door card off to get it up id expect.

Oh :(

looks like the bin bag is staying! 

will pop to my local garage on Monday, see if they can get the door card off, and get the window up. Will have to be in the new year I suspect now when it will be fixed. 

really bizzar, as it was working fine yesterday, even dropping and rising when opening and closing. 

could this be a battery on its way out causing it?

Are the other electrical things working, when my battery failed the dash lights did not come on when unlocking/opening the door.  and it would not start.

Start the car and see if it works. These modules are sadly known to fail - normally due to water ingress. You may be able to get it to work by simply trying again. If it does go up - leave it 🤣

Only here once

Everything else seems to work fine, and the passengers window as well.

Just tried again, definitely not happening:( 

I'll phone my local garage on Monday,  or a local specialist, see what they can do.

Does this happen also on MY12 cars onwards?   I was led to believe they have improved seals on the doors, do they still leak?

Yes it does. The window motor is weak point.

My gt430 had a RH window regulator - just before i bought it. The part number fitted was C132B4052F at a cost of around £360. B&C also paid a VOR surcharge to get it quickly. Labour charge was £55.

Wow, so I can understand early cars having issues like this, but after new seals on the 2012 cars onwards, and then further revisions with the 400 onwards, we still can’t park the car outside in the rain without the risk of window regulator failure?   On a £100k GT430?

If the motor has failed, can't just that be changed, I know the motor failed on one of my excels and I just changed the motor and it was fine.

Just gave it a try now, suddenly it started moving up in Jerks, so managed to get it to the top. Popped round, took my bin liner off, opened the door to get the key, and the sodding window went all the way down!! So I'm much worse off now, falling out of love with this already!

Sounds like a nightmare.  Just when you should be enjoying it you just want to kick it!

Does anyone know if there is a permanent fix for the window issues, or does a new part fail over time just like the old one did?

This really annoying. Even starting to regret buying it :( which I shouldn't. Especially when I made sure to check both windows on the day of purchase, and both worked fine (except passenger side drop) 

I'm hoping its an easy fix, like battery, and that the garage tomorrow can sort it, don't want it with a wide open window during this rain... 

Really hope it's not going to be an ongoing thing..

Is it your daily, living outside, or garaged?
