i have a vtec 1.5 P reg 1996 hatchback. my driver side window motor has gone. it doesnt work anymore. i saw an advert on ebay for one. The guy is breaking a honda civic Coupe P reg 1997. he has a full mechanism with the motor. Now my question is would that fit my car or shell i just buy the motor only as my mechanism is still there or shell i buy the whole motor and the mechanism. he's selling it for £40 for full set (includes motor and the mechanism). Would it FIT MY hatcback, if yes do i just buy the motor or the full set including the mechanism. please help
thank you :neutral: :rolleyes:

The guy said send me the part number of my car's motor and mechanism. how do i find that out without taking the panel off from my door. please help

It should fit your shell dude. The doors in the coupe and hatch are identical. Hope this helps

i think it would be just the motor you'd need, but you could also try cleaning out the old motor, wd40 or a blast of pressuised air?

I've found WD40 dries out and only works for a couple of weeks, I now use PTFE or silicon based lubricants for runners, mechanisms Etc... works a treat :D
