Am not too sure about power windows as I have them as OE on my car but you can go in for either the Xenos or Nippon for remote locking and security systems. It is better to go in for a complete security system instead of just getting a keyless entry fixed.

  1. go to this website -> Maruti Udyog.
  2. on the left hand side below the car selection menu you will see a tab titled DEALER LOCATOR. click on it.
  3. enter your State and City on the following page to get your list of Dealer Showrooms, Workshops, etc.
  4. all results are displayed with Address & Telephone Number.
  5. alternatively, go to Sion Koliwada, Milan Subway or Opera House and ask around the shops there.
  6. many MGA dealers also install the products you're looking for. two of them are:
    a. Sundar Auto Parts, Worli - +91-22-244962039.
    b. Chandrika Automobiles, Dadar (W) - +91-22-24226120.

Hello FMs,

Reviving this old thread, obviously for an old car-Zen '02. As it is a Lx model, it has no power windows. I want to fit after market power windows. Please let me know if anyone has done this to their zens and any feedback on it will be of immense help.

Thanks & regards,
Saket

I got a quote of 11k from a dealer for power windows on all 4 doors. The equipment manufacturer is RD. I read somewhere in this forum that RD is/ was an OEM for maruti?
Please let me know how good (or bad) are RD products & have they been ever the OEMs for maruti?

Regards.

Don't know about RD Brand, but I've seen a couple of old Zen's, Swift LDis with AUTOCOP powerwindows fixed.

I got this from vicky.in, I suppose it's universal and can be fitted onto any car without power windows.

Power windows can be fitted onto any car. All it requires is a power source to run the motor and space in the door panel to fit the motor if you do not want it exposed.

You generally even get the switches that come in a box so that the whole thing needs a hole in the panel but is a stand alone switch.

Thanks guys for your replies. I went to an accessory shop, where the dealer has quoted 11K for PW on all 4 for RD brand with Up module. It has individual controls on all doors and has a master control for all 4 on the driver's side. The guy told me that RD has been an OEM supplier for Maruti in past(??).
I will take a look at the system on may be Sunday & probably will get it fitted. That 's provided that I don't come across anything too discouraging about the particular brand.

Thanks,
Saket

Unless we change the door pads, the holes for the manual window levers would be exposed, since the power window switches came at a different position for the VX variant. Most of the aftermarket power window boxes fit in the slot for manual lever making it much more convenient to fit.

I don't think Zen ever came with power windows in the rear door. So its definitely aftermarket if you are planning for a 4 door model. Most players in this field are/were OEMs for some manufacturer or the other. So the quality aspect can be safely assumed for the trusted brands I guess. Infact, the cost cutting measures from manufacturers actually make it difficult for the quality stuff to be provided as OEMs.

Not sure about RD but I have heard good feedback regarding Autocop from friends, especially when it comes to servicing for central locking and power windows. Price seems to be in the same range for all these brands.

Yes, you are right. Zen never came with power windows in the rear. As I don't plan to buy a new car in near future, I have decided to plonk the PW in all 4 doors.

And as you say, and as per the conversation I had with the seller, he said that the power window consoles will be fitted over the manual lever pad holes which would 'hide' them. Also, the system has an 'upmodule' which will automatically roll up the windows once the car is locked using the remote. Have not enquired about Autocop. Will give it a try though.

Hello BHPians,

So, today I got RD Power windows installed in my Zen for all 4 windows. The job took a good 5 hours!! It has individual switches on all doors and has a master control for all 4 windows for the driver side with a child lock. Thankfully the color of the consoles were grey which matches my interiors & the upholstery.

The total cost, as I said earlier came 11k which includes an up module which raises all windows one by one once the car is locked by the remote of my central lock system.
My next mod will be installing a rear wiper & washer in the car and will be done by a MASS. Will keep posted in appropriate thread.

Thanks,
Saket

Congrats dude. Old Zen is such a nice car to own and drive.
BTW how about some snaps of power window switches?
I have seen a Zen LX getting aftermarket power windows installed from a dealer at Coimbatore, with the OE door pads with OE switches which gave a good look.

Why can't you try this as a DIY? Parts are readily available at A.S.S and other spare part dealers too.
