Xantia electric window mechanism

Post by ace131 » 08 Jul 2010, 00:35

Hello everyone. bf has asked me to pose a question. Car is a 1994 Citroen Xantia 1.9TD. The wire on my electric window winder mechanism (driver's door) has broken so I need a new mechanism. Can anyone tell me if it is the same as the one in the rear door or whether any other Citroen or Peugeot models have the same mechanism. I'm sure you will understand that any information received will mean we, well, him really - lol, doesn't have to tear a million doors apart - lol. Hope someone out there is the wide blue yonder can help so thanks in advance. Cheers, Emma

Only time I ever had to change one the whole regulator mechanisn with the motor had to be replaced. Front and back are not interchangeable. If its just the wire thats frayed/broken there are repair kits available on ebay - but it may already have done damage to the roller or the outer sheath.

I just had a night mare with this over the last couple of weeks. Mine is the v6 and apparently there were only I think 1500 units used that I know of in activas and v6's with the 'anti-pinch' mechanism so I had to pay over the odds to get one.

The only reason I had to replace my unit was because the little plastic slider had broken on mine. If however it is just the wire that is broken he can buy the wires off ebay and re thread them into the mechanism quite easily as in the above post
