    Ok basically my window switchpad had some issues, I established that one of the relays was going dikky but it kind of still functioned until one day I got my self into a bit of a mess. I was late for a course with the drivers window stuck down in some random car park in Luton and needed to leave the car there. I ended up smashing the top off one of the relays and pressing the contactor only of cause I got the wrong relay so I smashed the top off the other one too. I then put the window up and felt quite proud of myself for such fast thinking.............only not...... it turns out these relays are like rare as hens teeth and Ive smashed the serial and model type numbers off both so hence hours of trawling through electronic component sites trying to find them. Can somebody please please please just pop there switchpad out and write down all the numbers on one of the relays for me????
    Or even better if somebody has got a switchpad for sale that works that would save me some time!.....Its bloody hot right now in a car with both windows stuck up!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for your reply! That would be amazing but if not maybe you could have a look at the numbers for me on your existing relays! :)

    Every Pulsar i looked at had problems with the windows operating correctly. Mine has problems but they do go up and down though, albeit slowly and getting stuck. Can be fixed with a bit of man handling.

    Has anybody had a chance to have a quick look at those relay numbers for me or is everyone too busy sunning themselves in the park? :-/

    Yeah no problems although prying the panel out just reminds me how filthy my door cards are - you'll probably be best off getting the whole unit from someone breaking a car down rather that going at the pcb with a soldering iron, but if nothing else you can always get a same spec relay and try to splice it in.

    I've had a search running on eBay for one of those door switch units ever since mine started to play up a bit which is about a year and a half. It all came to a head when it completely packed up a couple of weeks ago.
    The relays are pretty special actually! They are twin coil jobbies in those little sub mini packages! That way they achieve motor reversal in one package! I could bodge it with 4 automotive relays hanging off the pcb on wires but it would not be pretty!
    I'll have a concerted look for them on tinternet later but a quick search yesterday was showing all out of stock or discontinued! :-/
