If your power window switch won't always work, and requires a few presses before it actually works, then watch the video I made on how to fix that problem up.
It's pretty easy to follow, I shall all steps from taking the bottom part of the dash out, to taking the power window controls apart, and finishing by testing the switch after done work.
Hope someone can find some use with this.
lol breathing nice vid and interesting green paintjob
IF YOU WANNA REV IT CHEV IT
cheers man my passenger window is doing that when i try to put it back up ill have to give this a go
loved the band aid on the finger lmao....thanks heaps for the vid m8....made the job so much easier...the rear left window switch had a melted plastic "pole"?..in it hmmmm....( the lil white plastic bit that sits in the spring )....not a good sign when plastic melts....thanks again...was a hugemungus help
Hey mate what did you do about the melted plastic pole? Did you have to replace it?
Thanks for the excellent vid will be fixing the switches on the family car this weekend haha
Great Video Denno, But my Drivers side window has stopped working all together. The 3 other windows work fine but not the drivers side one
Well I pulled out my switch and all is well but cleaned the contacts anyway but it still won't operate the window. I can however hear a clicking noise from behind the dash when I operate the switch.....Watch this space
Day two of this problem. A quick call and chat to mechanic at my local Holden dealer has put the problem down to the window regulator. I got one for NZ$ 135 bloody good deal I thought brand new with a 12 month warranty!! So again thanks to this forum I'm pulling off the door card today and doing the job myself. Watch this space !!
nice one mate.. was going to spend some dollas at holden for a new one, now it works fine
Its just a V6.....
Thanks for the video! I'm going to try it this afternoon on my VZ. Driver's window got the same problem... only it refuses to go down not up.
Edit: Aaaargh! Job's more complicated in the VZ. The switches consist of a sealed module each soldered onto the board. No way to get in without breaking the thing apart. Oh well... I'll just get one from the wreckers and fit it on myself.

Has anybody had any issues with the vz I can't remove black box because it is connected to the circuit board by the copper connections and the lights can't remove it with out breaking it? Doing this after replacing regulator thinking it was that

I've been having the same problem with my VR. Would the same method apply to mine?
