Mirors and electric windows not working on the drivers door

99% sure if you look in the accordian between the door and frame of the car you'll find cut wires. Pull back the rubber seal and check there first. If they are you'll have to remove the harness and fix it back to the connections in the car for a good repair or order a harness.

2003 Beetle Starter failure

the dealership is going to collect on the repair weather it is from you or vw. they always want to fix the concerns that you have but unless they are able to duplicate your concern they cannot correct your issue. Would you really want them be dishonest and just guess what your problem is or would you rather they fix it.
