Hi there. I am afraid I am probably a bit far away - Brentwood in Essex.
Thanks for the offer. Perhaps some pictures would suffice?

Ok
Will pull out the New manual winders and put them next to the Leccy ones.
Then picture them for all to see.
Hospital tomorrow so might be Tuesday

Having studied the forums and elsewhere a bit it seems possible that SE6 window regulators have alot in common with Lanndrover/Defender type that are alot more available than SD1 types.
With that in mind I wonder if it might be possible to convert the standard SE6 winder into an electric type with a bit of mechanical jiggery pokery
You can get the motors themselves complete with a cog to interface to the large semi cog on the actual winder for a pretty reasonable price
see https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-D ... SwAfpaw~B4

That would largely depend on the driving cog being the right size. The mechanical connection probably isn't too bad esp if you have a welder handy.....

Also if anyone has done any type of conversion to electric, what did you do about the interior door trim? I imagine that the factory did a different shaped one - probably made of unobtainium!

SD1 motors are available new but you could make anything fit with a welder and some ingenuity :D

Door trims are the same, just a hole cutout for keep fit winders.

Door trims the same? Surely the motors stick out if the Defender ones are anything to go by? Is there some special cover?

The motors drop INSIDE the door shell, so no different door cards needed.

The window and motor or manual crank all fit inside the door skin - the outer trims are identical.

Interesting. Does anyone have a picture of an SE6 electric window mechanism?

I sent you pics of the Leccy units, like the ones Jim has pictured in the above message, and the Manual winder units,
I think I only have One manual unit left, NEW.

spegru you will also need the small guide rails that support the operating arms.
these do not come with the Rover units, and are adjustable in slots in the door to get the drop glass to slide correctly in the frames. # 41 in the parts book
Just checking, are BLP1068 and 1069 the correct sd1 window mechanism units for a GTC? These are the references from Rimmers. I want to order a set today while I think about it. Also will I need to find the small guide rails?
