    A couple of things spring to mind, Lee.....first, the wiring that goes into the door from the body tends to break internally with the flexing that goes on, and secondly I'd try to remove the switch from the door panel and check for a live with the ignition on.
    Let's not forget though, the passenger window will also have a drivers side switch, so the problem could be in the wiring there.....after all, the drivers door usually gets more use!
    I've never had a Vito to bits, and the switch may not prise out of the door - sometimes the door card has to come off, unfortunately.

    Hi John
    Sorry for the late reply
    I've remove the other side and attached the motor and it's worked
    Swapped the control board around and it's didn't work same as the other but works fine on the drivers side
    Done the same with the switch it's fine
    Checked the fuse under the passenger seat it's fine
    I also remove the flex between the body and the door but can't see any break in the wiring
    The only thing I did notice was the harness from the board to the motor had water marks on it so will do a continuity test today make sure there's no break
    Thanks
    Lee
