There may be variations with this car and later models. This car has had all four-window regulators replaced at different times between its 9th and 13th birthday.

The rear window regulator consists of a motor and lifting mechanism by means of a cable.

For a faulty window regulator, before taking the door apart, determine if the problem is fuse, switch or wiring related. Window regulator fuses for this particular car are located in fuse box behind battery in the boot, others may vary.

In the case of this car the whole regulator had to be replaced, as the motor is not available separately from the lifting mechanism.

Front and rear window regulators are completely different units, i.e. front won't fit the back. See picture E.

Below are a couple of experimental tools for the job. Screwdrivers tend to be too thick in the case of peg removal and lack leverage in the case of the switch removal and tend to "dig in" to the door card covering. Alternative tools like tea spoons gives leverage while protecting the door card covering.. Inserting and twisting large spoons with thin handles are also useful for releasing the pegs.
