Just unarm the alarm.When disconnecting the battery, whats the sequence not to loose memory, set of the alarm, etc.
What? The vehicle doesn't have non-volatile memory for window positioning? I can understand the radio losing its settings (actually, non-volatile memory is so cheap these days I really don't understand that but it's true of every mobile radio I've used). And the clock, sure. But fundamental parameters like windows? Seriously?Some things will have to be reset regardless, like window indexes, radio presets, dash cluster clock.
That's part of the "charm" of these vehicles. From what I understand, they're orders of magnitude more modern and reliable than the Lucas-era vehicles. But that may not be saying much, compared to most other marques of current-day.What? The vehicle doesn't have non-volatile memory for window positioning?

I'm the first one to applaud the "lack of too much technology". I love the analog gauges, I love the rotary knobs, etc. Heck, I'd be OK with manual crank windows. All I'm saying is if you decide to include a feature, implement it properly. Non-volatile memory is decades old and ultra-cheap. A classic example is a USB stick... what do those cost, a few dollars? And being in the electronics industry I can tell you that at the chip level they're well under a dollar for the amount of memory this environment would require.That's part of the "charm" of these vehicles.

Its under the rear passenger side seat but the clip that holds the outer cable is on one of the bolts that holds the lower rear quarter panel in position so its easier to do this if you take that of as would be needed to access the subwoofer/amplifier. You need to reolocate the outer cable in the clip, bend the clip around it and then I suggest putting a zip tie or a twist of wire around the whole thing to stop this happening again.Hello
I have an S1, i used the cable but dont know how to pull it back, do you know a technique
To pull it back? Thanks
The video is probable as Series 1 car which required you to pull the cable in an awarded crossways motion. 4xx cars is definitely a pull forward. Now on the 2+0 cars there is a semi hard hardboard fitted under the shelf carpet, this was NOT designed to make access easy to the handle, I tugged and bent mine up to gain accessibility.Hooray, I get to contribute!
Not a video, but here's a photo taken moments ago in my 2020 Evora GT:

I tested it, and it works as advertised.
However, note the cable routing. It clearly wants to be pulled toward the front of the vehicle. That's contrary to what appears to be the case in the video posted above. I would look carefully at how YOUR cable is routed and pull it in its natural direction.
Note too the cutout in the carpet cushioning, which very clearly intends for the handle to rest in the position shown in the photo (cable straight, handle across the body).
As for access: I removed the rear lower seat (held in place solely by a solid layer of velcro stuck to the underlying carpet). Then the passenger side of the vertical carpet has a cutaway relief panel behind the passenger's seat that goes all the way to the floor, while the horizontal "seat" area carpet is simply tucked under the seatback. Lift and curve this area away from the right rear corner of the seat area and you'll reveal the view shown above.
The driver's side of the carpet does not have the cutaway relief panel, which is obviously in place to make accessing this emergency handle easier. However, removal of the entire carpet piece would be easy if you needed access to things underneath.
Reinstallation of the carpet is straightforward. Tuck the rear edge under the seatback, insuring that the cable handle settles into its cutout. Then just work the carpet down and rearward until it is in place. There are no fasteners involved, it's all just tucking and pushing.
I went ahead and removed the seatback cushion too, turning my 2+2 into a 2+0. There are four fasteners on the seatback but they release with fingers, then four metal hooks that "hang" it on the firewall. The entire 2+0 conversion didn't take more than 60 seconds and I was moving slowly and cautiously. Based on earlier comments and the video above I expected to build some sort of carpet-covered shelf in its place, but with the two cushions out the entire area is nicely carpeted and absolutely nothing needs to be done. We now have a very nice luggage compartment easily big enough for a couple of carry-on bags and a couple of backpacks, making the Evora GT the perfect car for a long weekend getaway. And the boot is still available too. Removing the seatback and cushion recovered a few inches of luggage space, and the two leather+Alcantera upholstery pieces are now safely wrapped and stored instead of being exposed to sharp-edged luggage. The seat belt buckles disappear behind the seatback carpet thanks to a couple of slots already cut for that purpose.
Hope this helps!
