    Got everything for electric windows..

    Finally got everything to fit electric windows in my car, took the door card off the other day to find the wiring wasnt there for them.. Best options to go from here?

    Bear in mind im not an electrician or done anything like this before

    Cheers

    Check to see if you have the wiring inside the car.
    If it's present all you need is a set of door looms (fairly easy to get from a scrapyard), if it's not it will mean a lot more work will be required.
    Main things to check for is a heay red, heavy brown & a lighter red wires, these are the power & earth for the windows.
