About Window Electric Systems
The window electric system driver side is the system that enables the driver to control the electric motors that open and close the all the electric windows that are fitted to the vehicle. This maybe just the front side windows or all four side windows.
This operation is controlled by a series of two way switches which are commonly set in the door panel or on the central console. Behind the card door trim, within the cavity of each door that is equipped with an electric window is a motor and an opening mechanism that is wired via a fuse to the two way switches. From these switches the driver can open and close all the fitted electric windows.
Problems occurring with the window electric system are usually with the failure of the motor but can also be the opening mechanism and a problem with the glass becoming disengaged with the mechanism.
Access to the the motors and the lifting/lowering mechanism requires the removal of the door card trim and disconnection of the switches wiring.

- After WWII, Michelin owned Citroën and wanted to make a car for the people. The Citroën 2CV was designed for driving on French roads, so it was incredibly sturdy, and tests were carried out by driving through ploughed fields with trays of eggs on the seats. Although changes in design happened, some version of the Citroën 2CV was in production from 1949 all the way through to 1990.
- John Lennon appeared in an advert for the Citroën DS3, many years after his death. The advert caused quite a lot of public criticism for Yoko Ono, who agreed to the musician's likeness being used.
