As above guys, both windows have randomly stopped working... they were totally fine until I put the passenger window up and now neither work at all.

I’ve checked all the fuses and the black relay under the dash that seem to have anything to do with the windows also tried a known working main switch on the drivers door from a mates car but still nothing.

Any help would be appreciate, thanks

there is a relay in the drivers door, might be worth checking too. only other thing to do would be to check the motors are getting power when the switch is pressed.

just thinking that might be for the power mirrors, so not sure now. i'd be checking the voltage at the switch and go from there. other possibility is wires are damaged by the door hinge in the rubber boot.

Thanks mate I did think about the wiring tbh, but it’s just the way they were working and then both totally stopped whilst I was in the car, not as if I was opening and closing doors etc if you get me.

I’ll start checking voltages etc tho cheers

Think I've got a relay if you need one

I've also seen the wire getting pulled out from the connector at the door hinge. Good luck
