As per title.
Delivered to Lancashire, or can collect if local.
i will check the boxes of parts ive got for you - i know i have some ECU's but think they may be all ABS rather then engine

A small bit of grease and a long water pump pliers worked fine for me to fit the rollers - put them in the channel. line up the ball on the arm and a slight amount of preasure should do it. You might need to move the window up and down to get the optimum position to get at it.
good advice thank you
i will likely give it a go when the VR is back from its underside work as the interior is all currently out

I have the group buy ones if you need an unused one. Pretty sure I broke one too whilst trying to fit it, so gave up 🤣
credit to those we have here still - a very helpful bunch
thanks cressa that would be great as i can investigate a scan of the unused one for 3D printing- ive PM'd you

I found a used one yesterday if it’s any good to you?

i might be able to get my friend to get the dimensions from it & then use it to try & stop the slight rattle on the VR6 d/s

ive never seen or heard of this code but ive also never had a G60
have you got a Bentley manual - i cant recall if that covers the G60 but i think it does
having had a quick search ive found the below, which though it doesnt mention the code you have it might make some sense of the MFA readings & lead you on a trail

Worn roller cause the window to rattle - especially when closing the door window part way down.
Passenger side won't be as worn, you could switch them around
good thinking dox
i know i brought 2 sets that is the annoying thing - i might have a search through the group buys to check who did the run of them previously
if i can get the 3D printer file i might be able to get some done somewhere

This one again. D/S window is very slow when it goes up. Unscrewed the glass and checked the operation of the regulator. Nice and smooth (i greased the motor etc a few years back). The glass itself doesnt seem to move smoothly though. Tried moving it up and down by hand and if definitely seems to bind on the lock side of the door. And when connected there is some kind of click as it moves from fully down to about 1/3 the way up. Is there any way to remove the glass without taking the regulator out? Also, any ideas as to what it could be binding on? The yellow plastic cable guide at the top basically touches the glass and i cant seem to move it away. Tried using a piece of felt there but that came off after a few runs.
Welcome any suggestions. Thanks
interesting this as the D/S does very similar in the 16v
i know i brought a couple of sets of window rollers in the group buy years ago but ive not been able to find them
have you tried LLL parts?
they sometimes have the exploded diagrams to drill down part numbers

Did this get solved ?
the post you are asking about is from over 12 years ago im afraid
having received another pm about looms we are up to 4 people so ive contacted Zak & he is happy to do another run.
as per previous runs, he works offshore & sometimes for long periods so they will be done as soon as time & work allows.
similar to the previous buys we will set a minimum quantity, once that is hit we will ask people for deposits & then final balance will be due once they are made & ready to ship
could i please politely request that people only put their name down if they are certain they want a loom & are happy with the terms - unfortunately on the last run we had a couple of people who put their name down but then did not reply to any contact messages
i will start to form a list once we have a bit more interest

Think I may be in a similar position to you, seem to have plenty of moisture in the car at the moment. No big puddles fortunately, but there's always a lot of condensation on the interior of the windscreen and rear window. So much so it had frozen in drips the other day.
My hunch is that it is the sunroof as it can't be vast quantities of moisture getting in because the carpets aren't soaked (although they do feel a bit damp), but I suppose I will have to start getting trim off.
Have you fixed the issue on yours?
do you have any dehumidifiers in there?
before i sold the 16v a few weeks ago i was having to wipe drips off the rear & front windscreen even with 2 dehumidifiers in there - as such it could just be heavy condensation rather water ingress
the 16v is water tight too as id checked sunroof drains & also reskinned the door membranes

actually it looks like you have succeeded or are you doing that manually? I see it is a good feature
im not sure why it disappeared but will message toby & ask
ive just checked with my m8 who sold them - they went for £1k last year so yeah i would agree that they are over priced
out of interest, what kind of size spacers or bolt on adaptors would you use to get the size & offset to fit?
ive got some 16" modena's in a 7j +41 & 8j +51 & need to figure out how to get them to fit
the garage looks mega Keyo!!
im still gutted the council wouldnt let me build one 😞
i may build the base anyway & then reapply as that looks the nuts

They were like this a bit when I ordered mine. 5 or 6 months before delivery from enquiry. They are very busy, just have to keep at it.
thanks for the input shaun

Well, about 5 weeks ago I contacted HiSpec and since, I sent 4 emails and none of them have been replied. I even emailed the chap Shaun dealt with twice. Holidays have been over for a while now. I don't understand why a company would not reply to a customer who wants to buy their products? Anyway, thank you for suggesting I was definitely interested but now I guess it will be time to find an alternative...
im the same - i emailed them at the start of the Jan about some for the mini & still no reply
i did speak to the receptionist or whoever it was & she said there was a wait of about 2 weeks for email enquiries - im not sure why they take so long but im going to call them again this week.
they were certainly not like this when i brought the calipers for the VR6 & i am sharing the disappointment

Right Ive got quite a lot of corrado parts left - I just need to split the mk2 parts from the corrado parts. Im keeping my storage boxes as paid quite a lot for them. So boxes will be tipped into your van or a good sized boot .
A van would be preferable for collection.
Based in Sutton Coldfield.
Who wants it all free .
First to say on post gets it - no shipping its collection only and you take the whole lot not pick and choose.
do you think i would get it all in to a golf estate m8?
