There's a pair of them on eBay UK for £19.99 each.

I guess they might do you a deal on shipping, or maybe reduce the total price if you buy both; might be worth contacting them.

Note: I have no affiliation with this eBay seller or their business

I suspect that Toni wants the complete actuator set; motor and operating arms. Without the arms, the motors are pretty useless in a coupe. Sadly these parts are now rare as hens' teeth.

IUt's these bits that are missing.

Hi Toni

Sorry my pictures failed to show. The PhotoBucket workaround has been zapped :-(. However I came across a pair of these actuators on ebay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Actuator-Qua ... SwEK9T~E~W

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Actuator-QUA ... Sw-jhT~E84

They want £52.38 each for them! But as I said, they are as rare as hens' teeth these days.

I quite like the look of these ones on a BMW, not sure what model they are from as all the ones on eBay look different.

The YouTube poster commented:

"This is a optional feature for BMW E36 Coupe. Original E36 BMW parts. "

Possibly not going to work on the coupe. The Megane units are dimensionally correct for the coupe quarter-light. A French coupe owner did the pilot installation and once we knew it would work it was promulgated on the forum here in the UK for everyone else to do it. The BMW parts are untried on the coupe.

You could always just use an off-the-shelf 12v servo and make the arms?

3 Door 309s used bowden cables actuated by levers behind the handbrake.

I have wondered whether you could do similar but servo actuated. The window end ( IIRC ) was pretty compact & tidy.

The advantage of having an electrically operated system is that firstly you can open and close both windows simultaneously with one control, which as they really serve the car as a ventilation method rather than rear passenger convenience is going to be how they tend to be opened, and secondly they can be slaved to other systems to automatically close them, such as closing when the ignition is turned off or closing from the key fob as part of total closure, to prevent forgetting and leaving them open when leaving the car.. While I paid considerably less for my set of Megane actuators, once they were internally modded to extend their operating life, they formed a permanent part of the car and an upgrade that Peugeot themselves might have incorporated had their cost accountants not limited expenditure on the design of the car. Many would say that £100 wasn't a bad price for a little extra luxury.

True enough but that could be done with the servo actuating the cables as we as it could with any other electrical system.
