I wanted to fit electric windows to my 2K as mine only had the manual windows, but I didn't really want to get an aftermarket kit and wanted to stick to OEM parts. I managed to find a guy breaking a Touran so bought both electric window mechanisms, including door metal inserts, wiring looms and the door cards. The wiring plugged straight into the 28 pin Caddy door connector, but the windows would not operate! After a bit of investigation I found that there is no large power feed in the main loom to the door connectors. So I connected a temporary feed and it worked!
I ordered up a wire/connector from TPS that fits into the 28 pin plug on the door connector (£10 for pack of 5 2.5mm) and wired it up to a supply via an inline fuse holder. All is good! The passenger side window operated from the drivers side with no additional wiring as it runs over the CAN network! What a result.
Its quite an easy mod if you can find the parts second hand on the bay!
Any chance you can call me as I'm still having big trouble with my elec windows and as yours went so successfully I could do with your help
