03 Mini Cooper Issues

Hi All,

I've been given a car from my brother as his wife has bought a new car. It's an 03 reg and is a 5 speed manual petrol.

I've driven it approx 20 miles and during that journey as I increased speed it felt like I could have been part of the Jetsons cartoon.

Another issue is the driver window does not open, trying to open the window does not result in any sounds so at first I thought it was going to be a fuse issue which it wasn't.

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to look at these 2 issues?

With the window its worth a try as its quite common to hold the window switch down & hit the door panel quite hard just above the speaker it might take 2 or 3 trys, you also may have to release & repress the window switch a few times.
Never really watched the jetsons so haven't got a clue what you mean by that, it might be better to explain the issue a bit more clearly so people can try & help :thumbup:

Or you could call mr jetson & ask whats wrong with his car/spaceship

A reference to driving in a glass bubble I think?
