Hey guys im new to the site and hope you can help me!!

My V Reg MKII 406 is giving me jip. The drivers side electric window is playing up. When I press the button to make it go down, I can hear it clicking as if i am pulling the button up to close the window. After a couple of 'wiggles' of the switch the window will go down, allbeit a small way then stop. It may then decide (with the switch pushed down) to go back up, or indeed carry on down and open as it should do.

The swithc feels a bit 'looser' than the others and I was wondering if it could be the switch that's faulty??? I know a new one is about 100 from Peugeot, so I was rather hoping to avoid paying that sort of price for a switch panel.

Any Ideas...let me know!!

Thanks!

It definately sounds like a switch problem.  I had the same situation with the sunroof switch in my Toyota.  As suggested by Puglover, I also went to ebay.  To my surprise, I found the switch.  Paid a quarter the price of the new one.

Of course, if the price for the one at the dealer doesn't bother you, its just as easy to get one there.  At least they can match up the part numbre properly.

V-reg 406 2.0 petrol estate. Had this too, drivers window keeps winding right down when ignition switched on?
- Took inner door panel and all the foam off, checked wiring, all ok and noted switch worked MUCH better when hanging down from wiring (?) Ha ha! Thought I'd fixed it so reassembled door but still erratic.
So - take out the switch trim panel as in Haynes 12.5 - remove wiring blocks from switch panel (big wiring block had pull-out red end to release it) and then the switch panel can be released from under the trim panel. Most of the release catches were broken on ours which meant A/ someone had been there before us and B/ needs duct-tape to hold it in properly later.
Our switch panel included electric mirror 4-way knob, so don't lose this OR the loose teeter-switch blocks OR the tiny white sprung switch centering buttons. Take the switch panel indoors and ready for surgery!
Careful examination of the switch panel (like a date box!) showed it was partially dismantleable by releasing plastic catches all around, which reveals some of the innards and printed circuit boards with the switches' contact points. A quick check of these showed a small sliver of plastic, probably from a broken release catch, was stuck in the silicone rubber of one of the switch contacts, causing it to be continually pushing down. Removed this, reassembled carefully with attention to WD, grit removal and any dead spiders etc, Bob's your aunties live-in lover! Seems like an incredibly unlikely thing to ever occur again but if it works for anyone else too then the world's a happier place.
