Re: 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.

clean out the drain holes at the bottom of the door
normally 3 slots near the edge of the door
next get a sheet of clear plastic and using a good sealant adhesive stick the plastic around every opening of the inner panel of the door
That stops water splashing out of the holes against the trim and running into the car
tube of sealer , sheet of plastic and your time
To remove the external door handle is not nessecery to dismount the door panel. Just follow my instruction: Open the door. Above the latch you will find small round plastic cover 1 inch of diameter.Remove it.There is screw T35 or T40 head/judish star/.Unscrew.Than slide the handle to the right about 1cm.Carefully pul out left side.That is it.
Thier is a Metal panel behind the door panel.
Both need to be removed
Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up. 99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.
The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..
Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle. And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel. Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door. They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen
After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best. For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.
After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..
Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, . Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain. I think it pulls down,. Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.
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)
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.
