    Re: window pinch system

    Oh its a right c0ck on. I had the same problem in IKEA car park the other day. Went up 3/4 of the way then back down again. Basically I didnt have time to figure it out but wanted to go into IKEA so gently without using 1 touch close nudged the window almost to the top with the switch. Shut the door, locked the car, went to IKEA, came out and drove home. On the way home I could hear the wind whistling through the window so tried to close again, pushed the button, 1 touch and it nudged close. Window works fine now. All I can deduce from this is to nudge it to almost the top, lock, leave for 30 mins, unlock, drive for 15 mins, try closing, if it closes without rolling down again it should have reset itself. On the flip side you may have a piggin big bit of cr@p on or in the roller machanism, clean out and pinch protect should stop.
