    Re-activate rear windows in D5 Commercial?

    Any ideas on how to re-activate the rear windows. I'd really like to give the dogs some air!

    Use remote start and set climate control if you aren't in the car?

    What do police dog vans have that allows temperature control?

    This will be a fairly difficult task as the window modules/motors are all disabled (wiring etc). Also the car configuration will have it disabled so you cannot just activate it by plugging everything in.

    I have seen vehicles left parked up with a full dog cage fitted where the tailgate has been left wide open but I assume the other doors locked? Plenty of air but a risk of dog theft I guess.

    Others have done it and they did not need reactivating.
    Strip rear door cards off and find motor wiring plug, this is normally filled with silicon type selant, clean this out, not sure if the loom from the plug to the door B post is there or if you have to get that
    I believe you also have to put new relays back in as these are removed. There was also a post where this had been done and there is a plastic trim over the switch pack on the drivers door, if you remove the trim you will find all four switches are in place

    I know someone who had it done at Urban as part of a full make over might be worth contacting them for a quote although I wouldn't imagine they will be cheap..

    £1500 to have them activated at Urban!

    I do find their stuff rather expensive. £3500 + Vat for a Scot seat conversion
