Default Rear Window XK8 Convertable

Just got the 2002 XK 8 out for summer. Top and rear quarters went down no problem but when I put the top up only the drivers side came up. I have checked the fuse(20 in the boot).

They are run by a pulley system with a cable- take a look down there and see if the cable has come off.

Easier said than done!

Just last week I finished repairing my pulley system. It's a fair bit of work to get to the window regulator. Not particualrly hard work, but plenty of steps.

Simon Galbraith, can you hear the motor going near the window? Can you hear any weird noises sounding like a metal wire kind of banging around? Can you fairly easily pull the window up and down by hand?
