Mk3 Alhambra electric sliding rear door very slow when closing
« on: November 04, 2016, 10:43:35 pm »
hi everyone, newb here!

My drivers rear electric door is acting up, it can close almost normally but does not do the final suck-in bit like it used to so it sits like if you only latched a door normally. When I want to open it either push the dashboard button or via remote it just makes a noise and opens about 1cm, almost as if its just opened to that same catch position.
I can shove it from inside and eventually it will move out enough to start sliding but by that time the electronic sliding door is more of a heave it yourself Im not moving door.

My brother checked the fuse and sprayed everything in 3in1 oil but it didnt make a difference. Is there something easy to look at or is there a learning process like the windows I need to follow?

TIA

I think there is a relay that packs up on the sharan/Alhambra sliding doors that gives symptoms you have. Best bet is a vcds scan first see if it shows a fault.

Part of the control unit that is located by the mechanism behind the internal quarter panel trim. I dare say it will not be cheap to change though?

Its part of the door controller 7N0959244 and is becoming a fairly common fault.

4781-0

The bad news is that its fitted onto the rail assembly is a PITA to get to, you need to remove the 3rd row 'door' card to get to it - Its number 14 on this image:

Just to let you know I got my brother to change the control module today and the door is now working again yay! He said it wasnt that difficult to do but very fiddly. Cost me £350 for the part and the parts guy claims it isnt a common part to fail  [NO]
