    Question Rear electric windows?

    Morning all!

    Just a quick one, hoping to be picking some rear electric motors up some point soon. But have a few questions about them.

    I believe the motors are riveted in ( as are the standard winder ones ) Is it going to be a case of like for like replacement? drill out old rivets, re rivet the new motor in? Do I need a certain type of glass? are they different shaped?

    Door Looms aswell, I picked some a few months back when fitting rear door standard speakers, I'm pretty sure it has an elecy window plug there, does anyone know what they look like?

    If anyone has any other info or think I may come across any problems please let me know

    Regards

    Tom

    The glass will be the same

    Yes the old rivits will need drilling out, you may find you can bolt the new one in otherwise your probably best to go to vauxhall for new rivits

    There will be 2 spare connectors in each door for the windows, one will have a fat brown and a fat red wire in and be towards the bottom on the inside. There will then be a smaller connector outside the door plastic

    Other tips is that although the door looms may be there now the cars under carpet loom might not be there, the dash loom could be different and almost certainly the drivers door loom will be wrong and not have the extra wiring in to make the back windows work

    Cheers for the reply bud.

    I don't suppose you know what the fuse number is for the rear elecy windows? Could always try a continuity test with the ignition out and just earth it with a voltmeter? Make a join in the loom in the door then try it? With it being an ignition source do you reckon it'd be all right?

    Cheers in advance

    Fuse number 17. This is permament live so remove it as you do the continuety test or just test at the rear plugs for 12v with the fuse in
