So, I want to change from Manual to electric windows! Been watching a few videos online but was wondering if this can be done with the original c3 electric windows from a model a year or two higher?

For instance i have a 2003, I was wondering if i found one that was on say a 04/05 model would i be able to make it fit inside the door? I know you can get kits online but these would look and work alot better. Also would i have to have a new fuse box fitted to put a new fuse in for the windows or could i run it off another one?

You must have a very base model there?

Electric windows (front) appeared on the C3 from 2002, so you won't need to find a newer model for that feature. But if you do look to newer, anything up to the facelift in 2006 will be the same as a 2002 car and I looks like the window regulator didn't change in 2006.

Have a look at these eBay listing ;) NSF C3 window regulator and OSF C3 window regulator and Window Switches - fitted to C2 and C3 models.

and check for fuse F12 in the BSI module.

Before you fit used window regulators, it may be worth changing the plastic clip (this thing).


I don't see any mention of a 2002 model with rear electric windows.
