Intermitant passenger window not dropping

Intermitant passenger window not dropping Empty Intermitant passenger window not dropping

I have a slight issue with the passenger window not dropping intermittently when you open the door. I have put this down to the switch in the lock mechanism. When the window doesn't drop the interior light also doesn't come on (when the window does drop the light does comes on). I looked on Ebay and the cheapest used Wind door lock was £40.00. After a bit of digging around I managed to confirm the lock is the same part number as a Twingo door lock. I managed to negotiate a Twingo one for £18.00 including postage. I will update this when I have fitted the lock, fingers crossed.

Replacement (used) passenger door lock mechanism arrived today. I can confirm the Twingo and Wind door lock mechanisms are identical. Fitted in around 30 minutes and window now drops every time the door is opened. Hopefully this info is of use to somebody at some time.

That would seem logical for the interior light to come on when one opens the door.

Interior light & window drop must both be somehow linked to door opening.

More electrics to potentially go wrong!!

Having just changed mine I can confirm there is one switch in each side's door lock mechanism. This operates both the interior light and the window dropping or raising when the door is opened/closed. You can test this yourself using a large screwdriver to push the mechanism closed (as the door latch would do when it closes) and then open it with the handle. The light should go off (after a delay) and the window raise, then the light come on and window drop when the lock is opened. I had an intermittent issue with the window not dropping on the passenger side (and the interior light not coming on). You have to change the whole lock mechanism as it is a sealed until but fixed it straight away.
