Q&A - Working Driver Side Window
My driver-side window seems to have went out-of-guide: it opens and closes with a bit of effort on the motor and help by hand; so it seems best to leave it closed for the moment. My "home" mechanic is on vacation until Aug 26th, and my vehicle is fairly touchy: the window is controlled by the on-board computer, it's calibrated electronically, the panels are a pita to take apart, if the battery is not disconnected by the "check-list" the SRS thinks its going out of whack and requires a computer reset, on top of it all my mechanic has already dealt with the passenger-side window a year back, so it's best for just this one guy to work on it. :)
So I am wondering if there an immediate/delayed/conditional obligation on the owner/driver to have the malfunction repaired?
- Are there any laws/statues/bylaws portraying to windows (driver-side window) to be in 100% working order?
- Does a window malfunction fall under a general "vehicle inspection" branch of regulations, so that it can be enforced in-case of a pull over?
- Is there a grace period to effect repairs?
My ideal solution is to wait until my mechanic is available (21 days),
but if this falls under immediate ticket-able offence / vehicle inspection order, I would rather drive my second vehicle for a bit.
Thanks for your time!
