Hi

You need to look behind the internal door handle with which you open the door, the internal door handle with which you pull the door shut, below the door pocket, and if there is one fitted, behind the little "tweeter" speaker by prising off the front.

You may also find some around the edge of the door panel.

Very best regards

Geordie

SOURCE: Passenger side window (VW Golf mark 4-1999)

Hello, I'll try guiding you through a possible remidy. Is there a round plastic dot or a cover behind the door opener/pull catch you may have to carefully prise it off to reveal a screw. the door handle has hidden screws too? usually one at the top (Possibly hidden again behind blank cover) look under the arm rest of the handle there maybe 1 or 2 hiding. Have you a rod that goes up and down when door is open or closed? if so unscrew/twist the plastic shaft that goes down behind the door card.
The card itself has push in hidden plastic clips all the way around its circumference/outside edge, these are fragile you'll need to prise the card away gently, if you break a few they're easily available eBay for pennies. Hopefully that should get you almost there but be sure to keep looking for mysterious hidden screws on the way through.
Good Luck and A Merry Christmas.

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not


was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

Driver's side window will not work. Door locks work.


My mechanic took out the panel on the driver side control because my right rear passenger window would not work after disconnecting the battery (but the control on the passenger rear door works) and when he put it back, it worked..it's possible it's just a loose wiring connection. My car is a 2006 Lexus RX330 with 58K miles on it.

Passenger side front window does not work.


Yea your right on that one, but to be sure test the regulator connector with a test light to be sure their is power getting to the motor. to remove the panel their will be a few screws around the panel and some snap clips on the back side of it, disconnect any connectors and be careful with the plastic clip for the door handle.

How do i take the side panel off to replace a broken passenger window?i took all the screws off..


Hi! you may need to take off the inside door opener for it may prevent the side panel from taking off. Please disconnect the connector of the power windows too to access the window mechanism. Hope this helps, have a good one!

I own a 2000 ford f-250 my driver side window was shattered so i took it into a mechanic and he replaced the window i havent used the truck much in the last 18 months because of other problems but i just...


Parts stores sell door panel removal tools. Just watch for hidden screws in the door panel. The passenger side motor is replaceable, just involves removing the door panel and removing the power motor. The regulator may need lubricated, I'd do the drivers side after you get the glass out.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Passenger side power window suddenly quit working. Window is in "up" position, but will not work from either the driver control switch, nor the passenger control switch.


I had the same problem with my driver side window, so I just replaced the power window motor. It took less than an hour, cost about $35 or $40 and it works perfectly now.
