i have noticed on ebay they are repair kits for the regulators being sold.
perhaps that is a cheaper option rather then being stung at a breakers.

How much cheaper and what's involved with the repair kit?
Would think getting one from a scrappy or used/new one from EBay or somewhere else is best bet but like I said I don't know whats involved in the repair kit

Glad to see someone has saved a few quid after raising an issue about regulators.
I had my regulator changed today on a car only 4 years old. I have had the faulty regulator back and am astonished to find that the problem is to do with the PLASTIC cog on a METAL motor spndle, it has completly severed around its circumference. It looks cheap, i would like to know if anyone else has had any simlar problem.

Sounds odd wonder what caused that unless you say it's just cheap but on a 4 year old car? You use it often?

Did you change it yourself or get a garage to do it for you ?

Yeah I found a tutorial on ehow website to help guide me through taking the door panel off and replacing the regulator!
Was better to practice on the car at the scrappy first ha, trial and error and it didnt matter if we broke anything.

Cheeky pikee git tho when I went yesterday he quoted me £30 went to pay today he said how much did I quote I said £30 and he said oh we'll I thought you mean just the motor and not the regulator :// pikee weren't going to budge after an argument, he had the part I needed which I had to take off myself and they charge £1 to use the hiviz jacket on site

Oh well glad it's all finished now, such a pain in the bum ha doesn't effect the workings off the car but very annoying if you smoke ;)

Just hope the new regulator/motor holds up, had to change it twice on my old 306, French electrics
