Replacing the old module on the similar Renault Megane window - It's easy!
Renault Clio 3 electric windows are known to suffer from a number of problems that may result in one or more of the windows not functioning correctly.
Often after a period of unpredictable or intermittent action, the window simply stops working, quite often in the open position.
A problem may be experienced on any, or all, of the electric windows, whether nearside, offside, front or rear.
There are various possible root causes, but these can be divided into either mechanical or electrical in nature.
An electrical fault is characterised by no sounds coming from the
electric motor (or anywhere else) when the window run switch is
operated. The window unit is just "dead".
On the other hand, a grinding, knocking, or just whirring or humming noises show that the motor is operating, and it will be a mechanical problem to blame.
Mechanical faults are often something simple like a broken clip or
steel cable - visual inspection after removing the door trim will be
needed to pinpoint the cause.
These parts are readily available online at low cost, as is the complete mechanical assembly.
Electrical faults are usually confined to the electronic module
(the "black box"), which controls the motor in conjunction with the
car's computer, and the window up/down switches.
Sometimes, in extreme cases, the fault in the module causes the motor to burn out, which will be self-evident, but otherwise the motor itself is a reliable unit and unlikely to be faulty.
The original module is not available separately, or with the electric motor.
The only way to obtain a new original module is to buy a complete window regulator assembly from Renault, costing hundreds of pounds.
Simple and inexpensive
If the cause is electrical, a quick and easy solution is to
replace the original module with one of QDI's "mini-cube"™ modules
This is a simple plug-in replacement for the original 6-pin Temic module.
The QDI "mini-cube"™ module is designed to work without any
connection to the car's computer.
It does away with the unreliable electronics of the original, and operates directly from the up/down switches.
The "one-touch" function is forfeited, as is the remote
operation option if present.
However, the improved reliability and low cost more than make up for this.
The "mini-cube"™ module is fully water-proof because it is totally encapsulated
in epoxy resin.
Tests prove that it will even run underwater!
It can be used to fit in place of the original 6-pin Temic module, whether fitted to nearside or offside, front or rear of any Renault Clio 3.
From 2009 onwards, Renault used a much more reliable (L-shaped) motor module, that is also found in the Renault Laguna. The "mini-cube"™ will replace this also, if required.
