I have a Colt CZC 2 registered 07 the pasenger window only goes up and down in jerky movements when window up and down switch touched not smooth up and down as should be this means that also the quarter light window will not go up or down on the passenger side, which in turn means we can not lower the roof .... My husband is an electrical enginer and he thinks I say thinks as people on here will have better knowledge as we both say.... that the window relay is either a problem or the runners and its a safety device stopping the window freely moving....anyone had similar problems please ?

on my 2003 colt, i find the cable can Fray, jamming the motor, eventually my window got jammed and i had to cut the cable, and hold the damn thing up with a wire coat hanger. my advice would be just replace the window regulator, the whole thing should just come unbolted if things have not changed too much since the older models. its an easy 20 min job.

Agreed- most likely the regulator cable. Take off the door panel, lift the sheath and tack it up, reconnect & operate the switch and you'll probably see a stray cable strand at some point.

If it's not that, it'd likely be water in the motor causing the pinion/gears to slip.

take out the window regulator and just have a good look at it, not sure what it's like on the cz's but the ones ive had apart (renults and rovers/mgs) they are just a sissor lift type thing with nylon wheels which sit in an aluminium runner. sometimes they lock then then bend the aluminium runnors or push something slightly out of place. You should be able to tell pretty easilt how it operates then just manually slide the mechanism to see for resistance. Might just need some grease on a runner or a cable somewhere.

Hi,

I have the exact same problem with my wife's 08 Colt CZC (Passenger Window).

I will post a video shortly of the behaviour but its incredibly annoying.

It happened once before but then disappeared however has not started happening again.

A whole new regulator looks expensive http://mitsubishi-colt-czc.sgpetch.co.uk/pages/parts/detail/category=chassis/engine=63/part=3325 :(

Did you ever get to the bottom of what this problem was?

Thanks,

I have a colt czc2 convertible 08 with a passenger window that judders up
and down when using button and the window doesn't go right up when
i shut the door. Took it to main dealers £51.00 to diagnose faulty
window regulator.Now you should not have to buy the whole window
regulator( £450 plus vat ) as they. now can use only the faulty part, to fix £242.77
Hope this helps if you have the same problem.

As this was reported several months ago I assume you have resolved your problem but I am replying with my experience in case anyone else has this sort of problem.

Our 57 plate CZC2 had the rear window stuck down but with the motor operating on the button. I took out the regulator and found that some plastic bits had broken allowing more cable to be wound on to the drum than designed. One wire was very mangled and not reusable. Couldn't find a used one so set out to repair myself. The parts - 3 metres of 2mm stainless steel wire rope (the most flexible) , some copper crimp nipples and/or screw nipples. The parts are very cheap but the crimp tool is expensive but I crimped one end with a vice and a screw nipple from a bike shop on the other (actually one original cable was reusable but I bought enough bits for two).

I managed to repair the problems if you have to do anything similar ensure the carrier must hit the end stops at both ends.

Also bear in mind the front window will not rise if the rear window is not in the fully closed position so do not lower the front window if the rear window mechanism is not in circuit.

I will create a separate post on how to access the rear window regulator.

Now I have fixed the rear right window I need to fix what was the original problem - the N/S front door window misbehaving - as others before me the window goes down and up in jumps.

Please could any of you that have had this problem provide details of what was done to fix it.

but didn't specify which part was replaced!

I could really do with some help fault finding this - I am mostly familiar with on-off switches not intelligent systems - well not in cars anyway I do IT for a living - so any suggestions welcome (other than "take out the regulator and look at it" as I have done that and it's seemingly OK!)

Does anyone know if the regulators are electrically interchangeable - can I try the O/S which works fine on the N/S to see if it works here which might identify the motor or the ETACS-ECU as being the problem? Of course the mechanics are all wrong not sure if the motors are too

Is it likely a diagnostic reader will identify the problem?

Other symptoms are.......

    On reaching each end stop and pressing the switch the motor still clicks so the end stop hasn't been detected.
    When the door handle is squeezed the window jumps down a little and if squeezed subsequently the window jumps down each time. (The O/S door only goes down once)
    If the door is open and the courtesy switch is pushed and released the window jumps down each time (O/S doesn't do this)
    The window never goes up when the door is closed
    Operating the N/S window switch the window is fully opened in 10 long jumps whereas using the O/S switch it takes 20 shorter jumps with each one about the same distance as the drop when the door is opened

Hope your not confused by all that - though in reality I am!

All suggestions welcome particularly from those who have had the problem and got it fixed and from anyone who understands modern day car electronics (not longer electrics)
