Look at the handle for the window, there is a plastic spacer about 1/2 inch thick, pop it sideways to be able to remove the window handle, it's hard to explain, but just check it out, can slide it outta the way by hand.
Now check all around the plastic panel around the door, there are about 10 screws to remove with a philipps head screwdriver. Don't forget to look under the panel as well as there are 3 or 4 screws there. They are pretty easy to find.

I have a fiate punto grande and the offside electric window keeps failing had at garage three times now but still keeps failing


Would I be correct if I said.....when you operate the switch to get the window to lower it will do it and then may stop? or is it when the window has lowered that it has trouble closing? Has the switch been replaced? what wires are being soldered? Is there a bad earth connection to the motor? Unfortunately Fixya does not provide an accompanying video option.

open the other rear door and lift up on the bottom edge of the back seat to remove it.
this should allow you access to the door trim panel.

Can´t open the rear tail gate/door. Have tried the emergency opening option (holding down the 2 lock buttons in the car) but that didn´t work either. When pressing the rear door "handle" to open...


If you squeese the handle put your head near the badge you should hear one micro switch operating the window and a noise like well hard to explain but its a solenoid operating the rear latch after the window drops, you can get the inside panel off bit hard with door locked; at bottom of door panel is four philips screws take them out and then the panel pulls from the bottom up,cut round water shredder and you can operate latch manually to get it open then check to see if micro switch in handle is working its not a rear wiper fault or window fault as they work, the relay for the rear door latch and the rear window are behind the offside rear quarter panel 3 connectors for rear door electrics, the relays are up by the seat at top,its not normally a relay issue either rear door latch solenoid or micro switch in back handle but rule out the handle as window works.

Disconect battery and wait 5 min and try again it worked on mine.

Hope helps.
