Thread: Freelander Rear Window Again!

    Default Freelander Rear Window Again!

    Hi guys

    Looked all over the forum but I cant find a definitive statement as to how I should recalibrate the rear window of my Freelander

    It is a 1999 3 door softback and I have just fitted a replacement mechanism - (cant think why I needed to do that?!!!)

    Unfortunately - although it goes up and down it doesnt do what it should - I can wind it up fine but when it gets to the top it just goes back down again.

    It moves when I use the key in the rear door lock as well, but I cant get it to stay where I want it to, or to stay up when I need it to.

    I didnt get a user manual with the vehicle and so I am not actually sure how it should behave

    Can anyone tell me how to recalibrate it or maybe even email me a scan copy of a handbook for this vehicle

    Perhaps the moderators could place the calibration method in a reference section??

    Thanks in anticipation

    1. Disarm the anti theft alarm system
    2. Disconnect the battery
    3. Wait 5 seconds
    4. Reconnect the battery
    Window will now go down
    5. Turn the ignition switch to the 'ignition' position
    6. Press and hold the tail door window switch in the UP position until the window has reached the fully closed position.
    The tail door window should now be calibrated.
    If calibration has failed, the ccu will sound its warning buzzer.
    Note: calibration will fail if the alarm is armed, the tail door is open or the window stalls.

    Also, as it is a 3 door, have you checked the micro switch on the rear off-side(?) pillar is fully pressed down?

    Thank you very much guys - problem solved!!

    An incredibly simple solution to what was potentially one hell of a problem!

    All I have to do now is get it to close inside the soft top instead of one side sticking out!!!

    Thanks again

    Inside the back door the bottom two rail fixing studs are adjustable so as the window can be tilted in and out to allow the glass to form a proper seal against the door seal, maybe this needs adjusting.
    If I remember correctly there should be 1 mm of pressure between the glass and the seal when it gets to the top.
