    I have a problem with my passenger side window. The cog on the winder mechanism snapped so I replaced the wonder mechanism. Now when I open or close the window it doesn't auto stop and therefore starts to jump the cog. It also will not auto stop if you put downward pressure as it's winding up.
    Any answers?

    My answer would be to have it fixed properly by a knowledgeable person.

    Perhaps try resetting it so that it knows where it is. Hold the window button down, when the window is down for five seconds then do the up for five. See if that works.

    The problem is I can't hold the window button down because the motor will not cut out when it gets to the top or bottom and is going to strip the window gearing.

    As said it does need to know where it is. When refitting the gear the window must have been in the wrong position. It is not over running but simply trying to move to the fully open or closed position. I would disconnect the cables from the window and push it up to fully closed then reconnect the cables. I did this with mine when fitting a replacement cable and gear set. I have not had any trouble since.

    When resetting the window it's important to use the 'first' switch position, ie. manual not auto. Press the switch to the first detent only and when the window gets to the end hold it there for five seconds. Repeat for the other direction.

    If that fails, see post 2.

    Makes sense, I'll give it a try.
