Question EF XR6 power window regulators

Hi guys
The electric window regulators on my front doors decided to pack up during this rainy season within weeks of each other. Anybody knows where I can buy reconditioned ones ? I was told there's a company that sells them around the Liverpool/Moorebank area but I can't seem to find any info on the web. Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks

good luck.
ps; had the same problem, turned out to be dry joints on the switch, it only cost $10, "hopefully", yours is the same problem.

Thanks mate, will browse through it later and see what I can find. As for the problem, definitely not the switches, but the regulators themselves. cheers

Re: EF XR6 power window regulators

depends how the unit is designed, I've seen some that use a relay for the drivers window only, the other 3 switches directly switch the power to each window. the high current on the switch contacts plus humidity could cause the switch contacts to corrode enough to stop them working.

I really have no idea what you're trying to say here. I was just trying to locate a couple of window regulators for EF.

What he said. But you said it's definitely not the switches why do you say that?

Re: EF XR6 power window regulators

Hi
Sorry, I didn't understand what you were trying to say before.
Why did I say that? Because I have thoroughly tested the whole circuit, and all is good up until the regulators themselves. The driver's side stops at 3 positions while going up or down, which indicates a motor problem (this happens regardless of it being on the car or not), and the passenger side makes a crunch/grind noise and barely moves, which tells me the cable that moves the window up and down is fryed (think of the cable that is used on bycicles for braking when the strands break). And none of these is new for me either, I've seen it before, i'm head tech of a Ford dealership and have been working for Ford all my life, ever since iI was an apprentice waaaaay back when :). cheers

Re: EF XR6 power window regulators

Ok maybe I didn't understand your description of the problem too well. But still something to look for when testing the entire setup: even if you get voltage at the motors, the switches might be worn and not allow enough current to turn the motors, that's what my problem was... just my 2 cents.

Re: EF XR6 power window regulators

Thanks. You're right.
It was probably my fault because I didn't describe what the problem was, just asked for anyone who knew where to get window regs. I always like to bench-test things when I suspect them to be faulty, just to rule out everything else. This was no different. The problems are the same when the regs were tested in the car or out of it. cheers
