The window regulator on my drivers door has given up the ghost.! Has anybody had any experience of changing one and are there any pitfalls to watch out for.?
Does anything need resetting or programming after changing it ?
I've just changed the driver's window regulator, motor, Temic controller on my wife's 207cc for one I got off fleabay. The original had just stopped working. Had to drill out pop rivets on speaker for access but no real problems encountered. Took about 3 hours all told. Turned out that the problm was just the Temic; these are an achilles heal on French cars so I hear. Can't find a source of the device, seems they get water in them and then fail, sometimes following erratic behaviour. There was no adjustment or resetting needed, it worked straight off.
not done a regulator but just had to take the doorcard off to silicone both squeeky runners, was trying to be mega careful not to snap any push clips but two broke anyway so you may need to hit ebay for some spares.
noticed those speaker rivets, seem a little overkill.
Thanks lads for all your info, I removed the door card and found by tapping the module on the motor it started to work, so dodgy module suspected.
I found out like you from the dealers you cannot just buy a module unit , you have to buy the whole assembly for about £150. !!
after a bit of searching on e-bay I found a module for sale that guarantees to cure this fault for good.!
it is supplied by Peter Hollinger and costs the princely sum of £13.94 delivered.!!
I found the module was easy to get at , it's held onto the regulator motor by one screw at the top and then prise open two plastic clips half way down , remove the multi-plug from the motor, then just pull module away from motor. The replacement module is a square plastic box about 1.5" square by about 1/2 " thick , and has 6 leads coming out with push on connectors on each lead, following the supplied wiring diagram four leads are pushed into the plug that was removed from the motor and the remaining two are pushed into the two connectors on the motor that are exposed when the module is removed. and that's it. the plastic box must be held in place with a plastic tie to stop it getting caught up with the window glass when it moves up and down.
the only difference in operation is that you will have lost the "one touch " operation meaning that you have to keep your finger on the button to keep it moving, but I think that's a small price to pay when you think how much money you have saved.! and these modules can be used on any door so I bought a spare.!
I believe the same module can be used on Renault clio's and also meganes.
Hi. Noticed these posts from back in 2013. Have intermittent operation on the passenger window of my daughter's 207 cc. Have tried lubricating cables, slides etc but still playing up so would like to get hold of a regulator for it. It is a Temic 401818 A6. Tried Google search but no luck so far. Any pointers to where I might find one would be most welcome.
Hi. There is no source for these; Peugeot change ' the lot ' when they repair hence it costs a fortune. Suggest you keep checking fleabay for a complete window reg. Mine cost £50. Then just use the Temic. Give the 'new' one a good dose of waxoil after fitting, concentrating on the connector. Water ingress is always the issue. I've been inside the faulty Temic, it's just a microcontroller and a few peripheral devices. But despite repairing the corroded pcb traces, I never got it to work.
Further to my previous missive the passenger window has now started playing up. Rubbish French electrics again. With a direct battery feed where the Temic unit fits the window goes up and down ok. So back to Pro-Lux Electronics on ebay (253544215175) who were brilliant last time. Also I know the unit will work as before as it is the same unit repaired. As said by someone else these Temic units seem to be the Achilles Heel of most French cars and some English.
