    Rear elec windows were fitted to the the Elegance spec Astra's as standard so in order to do this mod i would expect you would need the motors, switches & possibly the front & rear door looms out of an Astra Elegance in order to connect the switches/motors & also take into account that you would need the 4 way switch in drivers door to operate all 4 windows, Have a word with your local vaux dealer as to what parts are needed, Ive not heard of anybody doing this mod so i couldnt comment on how easy it will be but think it will be a good mod to do tho, Good luck with it.

    Electric rear windows are found in the CD and CDX models also, if the wireing plugs are in the rear doors then it should be a simple plug and play, take the rear door cards of and have a look for any spare wireing plugs ,if they haven't then it is going to be a pain in the arse to do

    You need

    Door loams,
    motor meks,
    single switches for doors,
    4way for drivers door.
    Alot of luck.

    Ill try this my self at some point but probubly easer to get two compleate doner doors for the parts and hope the wiring between the door connector and dash is all in.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    I looked at doing this with my rear windows, none of the wireing was in place. So i give up, dont have the time or patience at the moment.

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, thought it was better than starting a new one.

    I have a 53 plate, 1.6 SXI 5 door, i have electric front windows. I was wondering how hard it would be to put electric windows in the rear. I havent looked behind the door cards yet.

    Is this possible to do if i get all parts for the rear doors? I have searched and i have not found any information that helps, people have just said they might do it.

    I am going to be changeing the interior so i thought i would do it before i put the new one in, so i will have everythign out the car.

    I have pm'd Autosparks.
