    was very difficult having to retro fit everything, if i were you i would pop out the rear grommet from the B pillor that goes to the rear door and if theres 5 wires then dont bother going any further but if there is about 10 wires including a thick red and a thick brown then its just a case of changeing the door looms over and fitting the new regs, wud be less then a days work and straight forward.

    if you have to make your own loom then it all depends on how good you are with electrics

    Changing manual windows to electric is not very hard to do. just get all the wiring from the car with electric rears.
