Hyundai and Massy muddacnut. I fixed my driver window there in September last year (as per my post earlier in thread). Same window spoil again on Saturday. Regulator spool completely worn out. Bamboo was closest so went by Ganess.


*edit* Now called Massy...they say they will refund me the September invoice. However the Service Advisor cannot advise on a time but he say usually a few weeks.

Update
Having fixed both front windows (driver side twice - once with Massy and once outside) I have now had to repair the back right one as it went over the weekend. Same issue with the wheel being worn out. Massy actually refunded me the cost of repair that they did which failed within 2 weeks.

That leaves the rear left as the only window unfixed for now. Since its the 3rd time in 4 months Ganess has seen me his price also fell quite a lot from the 1st time.

Surely this level of failure can be addressed by the company even for vehicles not within the warranty period.
My Tucson is from the first batch in this generation so it is actually approaching 5 years old now however I am at 62,000kms so its not that I even extensively used it.

Use has nothing to do with it from the units I have seen. I have chalked it up to cheaper plastics being used.
Mazda's had the same problem but they seem to last a little longer.

The original regulator looks like some sort of polyurethane. But definitely a sub par material.

Whilst by Ganness Monday morning a man came in with a PDM Sportage and his regulator was also gone. He too also had to fix regulators before as well. I know Hyundai and Kia have their linkages so maybe its the same suppliers to both.

With regards to the firm though, as an example I know Diamond Motors had replaced the Fan Control Unit in all the local CS3 Lancers even those outside of the warranty period. Maybe Massy can do the same for the Hyundais (the Elantras also seem to have the same problem). Granted the numbers of Hyundais far exceed the number of Lancers but these window parts cheaper than the fan control unit.

But based on this windows issue (as well as the other ones I have had wrt the Tucson) for the time being Hyundai will not be seeing me and maybe Massy overall.

The circle of life is complete.

My rear left window went yesterday meaning I have now had to fix the regulator on all four doors (one door twice) between Sep 2019 to May 2020.
