    Little confused as your post is difficult to understand. Are you saying that when you push the button down and let go, the windows go down. But to close them you have to hold it up? That's pretty standard behaviour for a lot of cars.

    That is what i'm saying.

    Do you mean that when you "double tap" the window to go up or down, it does this fine for opening, but to get it to close then you've to hold the button all the way rather than just double hitting it and letting go and it closes by itself?

    You might need a new switch in the drivers door.

    So the auto up doesn't work? Is the switch broke?

    OH had this problem in his Citroen C5

    Started out with the passenger window not closing, and over a period of time, it stopped opening and closing windows full stop.

    It was the switch (I'm fairly sure that's what it was called, but it could have been also called the regulator) in the drivers door that needed to be replaced, it was a very slow failure, went bit by bit over a few months.

    Part was fairly cheap from a scrapyard and easy to replace too.

    Can anyone confirm if there is an auto-up function on this model?

    My car doesn't have it. Safety reasons I'd assume... in case a dog or child leant on the switch with their head out the window.

    I know on some cars to reset this function you drop the window, then keep switch pulled until you close the window then let go then immediately pull switch up again for a couple of seconds. This is to show it where the closed position is.
    Dont know if applicable to your car but worth a try.
