Rover 216 rear window issue

#1 Post by anchor » Fri Sep 18, 2020 8:29 am

Hi

I have a 216 Cab and the previous owner fitted aftermarket electric windows in the back that dont work very well - well they go down but not up. He did tell me when I bought it and I have not been using them. Not an issue. However my wife borrowed the car and wound the rear drivers window down as she did not know what she was doing! Again i'll take the blame for that. :D

So - I have tried pulling the window up, pulling it up while someone pushes the button - I can hear the motor whiring but no window action.

Before I take it to a garage I thought i'd take the door card off and see if I could get it up up manually then disconnect the wiring - I dont need to wind the windows down in the back.

I had a look last night but it was not obvious haow to take off the door card in the rear passenger seat.

Any suggestions or vids out there?

Many Thanks

Dan

I can photocopy some of this if you're willing to pay costs?

Read through this first!

To Remove the regulator
1 wind glass down 4 inches
2 remove x5 screws holding regulator assy to body panel
3 remove nut rear guide channel to mounting plate
4 remove speaker splash guard & speaker assy?
5 reach thro aperture & remove square lock plate [turn thro 45 degrees ] securing glass to regulator spigot
*glass needs to be prised CAREFULLY away from spigot!*
!this allows for removing the regulator from the body mounting plate via undoing 5 nuts
*wedge the glass against the weather seal before separating glass/regulator.*

I assume you will need to do this in order to remove the electric motor kit?

I will look up how to remove the interior trim later.
