    Slow windows

    Is it possible to increase the tension on the coiled spring on the winding mechanism. I'm hoping to get more assist when the window does up.

    Briefly, no! Something else is wrong if the window won't go up, as the motors are adequately powerful. Have you perhaps been supplied with the wrong channel felt? For some time one that was too narrow was being sold, that gripped the glass so tight that the motor couldn't cope. The Stag Club had the correct on re-manufactured a few years ago that cured the problem.

      Hello Mike,
      I haven't got to the root of the issue yet. I have not changed anything either. Just wondering if it is possible and if anyone wants to admit whether it is possible? On Stag no. 2 I hooked up a battery directly to the motor and the window went up and down with no effort. however using the switch implies otherwise.

        Check the earth from door to body?

            Great idea but that won’t help, the motors are not grounded that way. Both wires go back to the switch and the ground/power is switched there.. there are many connections in the circuit, first thing is to check and clean them all.. including the switches.

            if both are equally bad then maybe go back from the switch to the relay panel where the breaker is and on back to the fuse holder- more connections.. And yes, do check the grounds from the switches to wherever they go..

            I wonder where that is.. The bunch by the wiper motor perhaps.??

            Also they can be a bit sluggish if the engine is not running..

              No it isn't safe to do that really.
              Use soctfl channels with silicone lube.
              Remove the spring & grease.
              inspect condition of the nylon slider in the lifter groove .... lube or replace as necessary.

                4DEB54D9-4758-48FA-88A1-4666820CDD90.jpegOne good test is to connect a battery directly to the motor, if it’s still sluggish then go for the mechanicals, if it’s much better go for the electrical

                I have some small 12v batteries from old ups systems, they are about 6x3x2 and really useful for troubleshooting electrical circuits like these.

                  It can be that the grease in the motor has hardened over time, also it is possible that the pivot on the arm( at the motor end) has been subjected to water corrosion from rain entering the door. they are easy to dismantle and clean/lubricate, there is a guide in the technical section, ensure you "lock" the arm with a bolt through the hole in the plate before you remove themotor,once the motor is removed you can carefully locate the plate in a vice and then whilst gripping the end of the arm remove the bolt and let the arm unwind slowly.

                    I got a vast improvement with new switches.

                      Drivers side on mine would not go up without assistance.

                      New channel felt (correct profile from Robsport) + a bit of grease on the mechanism & the problem cured.
