OMG! Would that not destroy the rubber/fabric beadings/channels?

So, it is bound to come down even if it is permanently fixed up right? My mom, paranoid on car theft, found out a little gap at the top after a week from closing it up, and was complaining bad workmanship by the mechanic, while I, was wondering how it came up when I personally checked it to be tight after service.

Since, 95% of the time I travel alone in the car and I use only with AC, whether the window is manual or powered do not affect me much. Even a 'quick fixed' window is also ok !!
Same with my dad who uses the car.

Is there any other option of fixing a matching power window of any other car like Esteem?

Having manual window at rear is always good from safety point of view. As you know, there were many incidents of vehicles falling into water in kerala. Many deaths were also happening in such accidents, since the electric window will stop working once immersed in water. If manual, atleast the chances of the occupants able to open the window is more and likely to escape. So, option 3 is also not a bad idea, plus it saves few thousands for you..
I completely missed out on the point of going under water. Wondering whether the electronics will jam the door also in such emergencies.

Yes, as per my mechanic who was earlier with a MASS and has now put up his own shop. It costs around 1800/-, compared to 6k including labor for the genuine part from MASS.

Still no after market options reported for window beeding? Who wants to spend Rs 4500 for the original but the wind noise above 90 kmph isn't nice thing to hear while driving on highways!

Hi Mohanan,

My Baleno's rear left power window went kaputs a few months back.
The MASS here said it would cost some 11K to change the entire assembly and it will take 1wk to get the parts from Delhi. I had them just fix the window up permanently and just like you had the same slippage. That small gap is really a pain when one washes the car (a little water drips onto the rear seat) and can be horrible for the rear passenger driving on a cold Bangalore morning.

Anyhow, after much enquiring around, I was directed to a pair of guys who do power windows and central locking remotes repairs. They will come to your place also to check it up etc (in Blr of course!).

They came and saw. Said my motor was kaputs (just as the MASS guy said) and said they would try and get a 2nd hand one. I had gone to the local scarpyard (Gurjari in Shivajinagar) and knew that these things were avbl there but as I am not experienced in these things I have no way of knowing whether it is in good condition or not.

These 2 guys sourced a 2nd hand motor and kit and changed the one I had. They also had to change the window switch on the rear left door panel and delink it from the driver console. Some sort of major mess it seems and advised me not to get all that fixed as it would cost 8K !!

Anyhow, they did a really professional job - if you see them work you know they KNOW what they are upto. Had it up and running in under an hour of getting the parts. Now the power window works fine - I am happy and it all cost me 3.5K with the assurance that it was done by some really competent guys.

So ........ if happen to be in Blr, do PM and I will be happy to direct you to them. I would be happy to put up their contacts here but as its not allowed as per Forum rules I am refraining from it.

Incidentally the MASS guys initially said that they could covert the window to manual with some kit but later told me no such kit is avbl.

In the too busy life where you can find time for such hobbies of your heart only in the midnight, simple solutions are needed to support you. I put 3-4 drops of 'quickfix' ONLY ON TOP EDGE OF THE GLASS and fixed it now. Now it is ok.

I have three options in front of me :
1. Change the power window assembly from MASS by spending 8K.
2. Try to get the cable replaced from Mumbai or some place like that.
3. Think of whether I can make the window manual. Since, 95% of the time I travel alone in the car and I use only with AC, whether the window is manual or powered do not affect me much. Even a 'quick fixed' window is also ok !!

My preference is in the order option 2, option 3, option 1.

I am likely to visit mumbai in January. That time, if time permits, I want to try option 1. Till that time, let it be 'quick fixed'.

Thank you Musa,

Due to busy official commitments, I could not go through the threads for a couple of weeks. I am going to Mumbai next week. I thought, I will first try to get the cable replaced. If I could not get it done, Then I may need your help.
I will contact you in that case.

@Mods there is no commercial interest involved, its simply about helping another bhpian who is unable to source a particular part in his town.
Just to confirm - got the clock fixed finally. Many thanks for all the help. Now that my baleno is getting nearly 7 years old, the power windows are getting creak (Or is it the beadings that have become hard?). Looking out for options on how to smoothen them, if there is none available, I will just replace but I am quoted 25k for the entire assembly of beadings and windows.

My baleno was hit from behind by an idiot on Friday evening. The left tail lamp cluster is partially broken and the bumper has a big dent and is cracked.
I went to suraksha motors for an estimate and I was given a quote of 32,000/- for these two jobs. I will have to shell out around 12k-15k from my pocket for the repair

Rear Bumper :12,600/-
Tail light: 7000/- odd

I couldn't leave my car for repair on Saturday as I had plans to visit Mysore.
As I know a spare parts dealer in Mysore, I checked with him, he provided me aftermarket solutions for both the tail lamp and the bumper.

Rear bumper:4400/- without paint
Tail light: 1650/-

I also checked with my regular mechanic who services my car whether he would do insurance repairs. He said he will and gave me an estimate of around 9000/- for the repair. This is much less than what I would have to pay as depreciation charges at MASS. Though it is not a cashless repair, I will get the repairs done with my regular mech.

Hi,
I recently had to replace my front windscreen after a coconut fell on it. The quotes I got were from windshield experts about 7K if we claim insurance and about 6.5 K for cash.
I got a replacement from RR auto glass for Rs3300/- all inclusive and it was fixed at home. I went this route as I did not want to lose my no claim bonus about Rs2500 and also had to pay about 1500 towards depreciation and compulsory contribution.

Anyone changed CAM sensor recently, please tell me the exact part no with cost you paid:

is it 33220-50G01(description: Sensor Cam position)? (it is Rs 2250 while another one on catalogue 33220-50g02, which says sensor assy cam position is Rs 3318) Dealer has no clue on which part to order

I got error 47 on diagnostic.


ps: I got my RH ORVM changed as the old one fell off due to a crazy Zen driver on a highway! I got some local aftermarket part for Rs 100, though not of great quality, it still does the job.
