p38a electric windows !

anyone else had this problem !

front window judders when trying to close the last 10mm and then wont close
fully stays about 5mm open ! if I manually lift the window with motor
running it will close but not without the motor running !

broken tooth on mechanism or cog ? fault motor ?

mechanism is riveted on so would like a few suggestions before I start
drilling !

thanks

Could be just the whole mechanism is a bit stiff (and voltage when
engine not running lower than when running hence inability to close).

(Sorry, just re-read your post, and realised you meant"electric"
motor).

Get some silicon spray and liberally spray the tracks where the glass
slides up and down.

Works wonders.

Really.

(Still try the silicon spray, cheap and quick).

well that didnt work ! better light now and I can see the cam jumping side
to side as the cog turns , so it looks like I will have to take the
mechanism apart ! and the star drive set is at home so will have to leave it
for another day !

thanks anyway

Mine did this, one of the rivets holding the mechanism to
the door frame had broken. So whole lift mechanism was turning rather
lifting glass.

fixed it ! had to weld a few new teeth onto the lift cam and then file them
to shape ! cheaper than buying a new lift mechanism !
