I thought it might be worth starting a new car advice thread, seeing as the similar one was closed. My intention is to have a thread where people can ask about repairs and common issues with models (for instance if they're looking into buying a vehicle). I'd like to suggest modification and tuning be covered in another thread as appropriate (not that it's my place to police the threads! )
To kick off, here's a photo of my broken window mechanism on a 2003 Seat Leon.
Before I completely strip the panel, no doubt breaking some vital clips somewhere or just plain ruining the door, does this look like something I could repair just by recoiling the cable or will I almost certainly need new parts? Note that the window is up and stays in place. Does this suggest that the clips that hold the window are intact?
