    ???? Thats for mirrors though ????

    Anyway your going to need to check you have the wirirng in the rear doors, you then need to make sure you have the wiring int he car so pull back the door grommet on a rear door and check you have the same number of pins and mainly a thick red and brown wire each side, check you have a terminal on both sides of the fuse location for the rear windows in the under dash fuse box and finally check you have 11 wires going to your drivers window switch.

    If any of the above missing it won't just plug in and work

    And if all the above criteria are met, it is pretty much plug and play?

    Yep

    Bolt your window mechs in, add switches in rear doors and replace drivers door switch and add a fuse

    Smashing. I might give it a go if the parts turn up somewhere. Any ideas of a rough price for the bits needed please?

    as for the looms i have the 3 required looms allready in the doors drivers and both passengers i pluged the 4 was switch in and it lit up but do i have to double check the rear doors?

    and how do mean i need to check how many pins ? if so how many should there be goig to the rear doors (with electric windows) ?



    and i dont get this bit mate ?

    "check you have a terminal on both sides of the fuse location for the rear windows in the under dash fuse box", i thought all the electric windows ran off the same fuse ?

    thanks

    They do all use the same fuse. Check you have the following wiring in place.

    Did this diagram up for Measorpaul when he added rear windows to his car.
