Hi guys,

My rear blind hasn’t worked since owning. Does anyone know how to get it working? Is there a motor that seized?? 

Again, I look forward to your responses.

Unfortunately diagnosing a problem like this from a distance is near impossible. My first port of call would be any fuse in the circuit, but invariably if a fuse has blown it's blown because there is some other fault such as shorted wiring or faulty motor.
Loose connections are another possibility as far as no operation is concerned along with stuck limit switches.
Going through the system with a multi meter methodically should give quick results.

When you say never worked I guess you tried the switch  to make it come up and go down....did you check the  fuse

Any slight resistance and it stops the motors so try lifting by hand from the two edges to free it. Then try again from the switch.

That is the exact problem I had with mine, one side went up and the other wouldn't move. Anyway the upshot was it needed a new rear blind unit for £1100. Fortunately I had warranty. So not a cheap fix unfortunately.

I wonder if it's like the way the parking brake can seize if its not used much, just a thought.  I must say I do use my blind a far bit, especially when the early and late sun comes through the rear.

Mine did exactly the same when I got the car. Just helped the other side up while someone pressed the button. Worked perfectly fine since.
