How to open and close windows outside of car!

got told this at the garage today if u hold in the unlock button on ure keyfob the windows will come down and then u can stop it at desired level by lettin go of button. then if u want to put ure windows back up again hold in the lock button. clever stuff! i just tried it and it works. its useful so that u can put ure windows down from inside ure house on a hot day a while b4 u get in ure car so its nice and cool.

Yeah, I use it now and again - the Ulysse has it to.

Isn't it in the manual as well?

I use it - especially if the car has been sitting in the sun for some time - just takes the edge of the airblast when you come to open the doors.

good to hear we're not alone in this one PNL we used to be caught out with this until the thread with all the tricks appeared.

think it is useful if your not going straight out and you know the car will be hot can cool it down a bit before you get in it. and means if you get out of the car and have forgotton to close the windows you don't have to restart the car to get them back up

Apart from you making your car overheat I have to say the Steel Grey Metallic colour of our motors has been fantastic for keeping the motor cool during the hot summer

In fact the only the time mine started to get rather hot was when I fully opened the sky roof (dark seats)

Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

It's a pity you can't pick which window you use. I use it when I'm waiting in the car for her indoors to do the shopping, it saves switching the ignition on, which we all f-cks the coils.
