Found them (both). They are indeed inside the car, up under the passenger side dash behind the glove box and the other in the foot well near the ECM (Fed car description - UK cars may be similar). Not a huge amount of room to work with but more than for some projects. :-D

There are 2 harnesses that run to the door. A large rectangular one with what looks like to be 11 pins and a smaller square-ish one with 5 pins. Its the smaller one we want with a slate/green wire (window up) and slate/purple wire (window down).

A few more updates:

In the original design, the module was able to sense which door was opened/unlocked and only commence the "reseal" function for that door. That won't be possible with this new device and the reseal feature will operate on both doors regardless of which one was opened. I say that its not possible but technically it is. By using 2 of these modules we can control each window separately which will, of course, nearly double the cost of the project. So, does anyone feel strongly about the need to have both windows controlled independently for the reseal function?

Sorry - I'm reading the posts with interest so - Yep - would like three modules if possible and I'm not overly fussed about the single window drop (but it would be good) the possibility regarding the potential of no leaks is great!

Likewise, hoping for good news soon. I have been experimenting with a couple of Ford one-touch window relays, but would prefer a more tailored solution, esp. if it included the window drop on open door.

Keep up the good work :D

Great progress on this one.

Personally I'm not fussed if both windows reseal when one door is opened, the resealing is just what I'm looking for.

The guy who was using my car as a test bed hasn't been in touch since last year so I assume it's going to take a while
