    Changed battery, 2 questions...?

    Got sick of bumping the car so replaced the battery tonight...

    The drivers elecy window wont continue to open/close when you hold the switch for a second. It moves fine but if you let go of the switch it stops where it is. Passenger side works as normal. This never happened before until change of battery...? Any ideas...?

    When changing the battery, the bolt to the left that holds the battery in place with the bracket has snapped i.e. the thread section is snapped flush with the battery tray. What's the best way to sort this and get whatever new bits? I'm driving around with the battery loose in its tray at the moment.
    Cheers

    Ignition on,hold both electric windows switches together,all the way until the window closes,then dont let go for 5 seconds,this syncs the windows and 1 touch should work again

    right so the bolt snapped in the tray?,either buy a new batt tray or remove batt and get sum one to drill the centre off the bolt(small drill bit) and use an easy out to grip and unscrew the whole lot and then simply buy a new bolt

    Strangely enough it had fixed itself when I got in the car this morning, windows are fine now. Just wish the rest of the car would fix itself too
