Is it common for these bastards to stop working?

Last night i was winding down my electric window and i closed the door (while winding) and it stopped .. then i pushed my window down a bit by hand and it stopped, so i hit the motor again and it went down as per normal.. its still doing that, seems like the middle of a cog died or something.

Anyone had any trouble like this and can provide some info before i rip my door trim off (which is a PITA :\)

thx.!

Its quite common for the E series window motors to fail. Are you hearing any strange noises? If not it may be just a broken wire that is causing it to fail, and by moving/hitting the door it is making a connection.

Can also be the switch has got dirty inside.

the motor in the door kept running.

The problem seems intermittent as i wound them up/down at lunch time today fine. *shrug*

If it keeps doing it i guess i'll have to whip the trim off.

If the motors still running then its likely the drive gears are worn, window reg will need replacing.
