I pulled the door handle inside the door and normally the window goes down slightly however all I heard was a loud crack! Now the window won't go up or down but I can hear the elctric motor running when I do try and put the window up/down.

Any ideas what has happened and if it would be covered by the warranty?

Cheers,

Steven.

I'm sure it'll be covered by warranty. Just take it to your dealership.. If there was a cracking sound inside your door, it probably isn't electrical and it may be part of the mechanism connecting the window to the motor that broke, possibly one of the gears.

If you're curious as to how power windows on cars work, here's an article.

Cheers, took it to the dealer and it looks like the window regulator cable has snapped. Booked in for next week, 3 hour job apparantly and covered by warranty.

A good outcome, 3 hour job...well I can't really judge cos I haven't worked on one myself, but it does seem quite long.
