I was there! Unfortunately I missed most of it because I was having way too much fun on the track and when I got back nearly everyone had left, including the Kitty Fiddler with my mug and hood repair patches in his boot!

Tidied… :oops:

An update. Now the motors gone. :cry:
I probably finished it off in attempting to close the window! That may be why it got stuck, because it no longer had the ‘oomph’ to push the window past where it was catching on the door.

On the plus side, whatever I did has straightened out the mechanism, the glass is no longer catching the door or pushing against the rubber strip on the top of the door like it was.

Shucks!
Are you sure it's gone? I would say one needs to really insist to heat the coiling so much it melts the insulation? Hopefully it's just a fuse?

I’ve had someone look at it and am relying on what I’ve been told.
