The two wires going to the motor reverse polarity depending on whether you're going up or down. If one was damaged, you'd only see a missing ground at the motor when the switch is one way, not the other. > The switches would appear to push into the connectors only one way - I'll > certainly have a go though.

Not sure where it is on your car - I've never had a 900 with a window relay under the back seat. On my later 900s, there is a ground point under the carpet between the seats. You get to it by first removing the centre console. > Hmm. More investigations ... Thanks pal. Good luck. -- Grunff
