Electric window problems

So, I flooded the Alarm Control Unit (leaking hood well tray) and gradually the locks and windows packed up.

I had the unit repaired by Turner and they seem to know what they are doing as when I reinstalled all the locks work...but no joy on the windows.

I get various voltages at the sockets and actuating the switches does feed power to the sockets but does not actuate the motors. So I obtained two new motors, and they don't work either! I have checked the two fuses.

I'm a bit lost as to where to go next but maybe the ACU isn't fully repaired, or there is something else I am missing. There does appear to be an electrical unit in the base of the passenger side (UK) door, and I cant identify this in my Bentley manual...perhaps this is the culprit.

Any help or views gratefully received!

For those interested, this turned out to be water and corrosion in the electrical connectors on the A pillar (between the door hinges). Both sides were rotten and I had them rewired today....everything working. Worth investigating early on if your facing window issues...good luck, and when you do get it back its a joy!!
