Right then,

I've got a 2000 (W) SWB, 102 TDi Auto. This has got factory fitted elec windows. A few weeks ago the drivers window stopped going all the way down, infact it only goes half way?!

The auto wind function still works and there are no nasty noises etc from the mech, it sounds perfect except the motor stops it half way down :(

I've had the door panel off and all loks fine, nowt loose or broken! Any thoughts folks?!

Cheers

if the mechanism is a bit stiff mate
the motor will think its reached the bottom
because it detects the current the motor uses
as the window reaches the fully down position
it will use more current as the motor has no
more travel
i would try to grease the mechanism first
if you have no joy
then i would remove motor the and check
if rotates ok (up and down)

Done all that, all 'lubed up' and runs free. It's almost as if the motor / mechanism has slipped and thinks the window is at the bottom of the cycle when it's not?!

Any other ideas?

i don't think the motor has a cycle as such i think it goes on current when the window
stops the motor uses more current
and then it switches off
thats the same with the roll back detection

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be someting stuck in the runner but in the upper frame section where the glass is, as opposed to the door section behind the door card. It was like a rubber shim that should have been in the lower mechanism that the glass should run through but it had dried out and stuck to the glass so moved up and down with it causing it to jam. At least it is something else to eliminate T:
