Customer Question
My 2005 ,,mini cooper...

My 2005 ,,mini cooper driver side window stopped working in the down position.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

With the door closed, hitting the up switch makes the glas twitch, then back off a bit as if it "thinks" the window is all the way up nope - had the motor replaced about 2 months ago but its been working fine until yetsterad whhen I was driving around

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Ummmm.......manual? this is a window question,....

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Cant think of anything.
