Windows won't roll up.

Hello all,

First post here - Just bought an '01 Boxster with 74K miles.
Great car. Recently I noticed that the windows won't roll up anymore.

They will roll down for that 1/4" when you first grab the door handle and will go down about 6" when you unlatch the top, but that's it.

I have checked the fuses, and they seem OK.

Any ideas?

windows won't roll down

This happened to me and I found that the area where the top latch locks into can be fooled. Drop the top and then take a pencil and use the eraser end and push up into the latch socket and listen for a click. Try the window switches. If the windows go all the way down, your done! If they don't push the pencil up there again and retry the window down switches. Once you get them to go down, put the top up and latch it down. The windows should work now. If not I have no further ideas on the subject. It worked for me. There is a switch up there in the latch socket that has something to do with the way the windows work. Good luck. Kgas
