2004 Conv Bug right rear window goes 1/2 way up then back down

We put the top down on our 2004 Bug (16,000miles) now we can't get the right rear window to go up. It goes 1/2 way up then right back down. I know the design on the mechanical cover "flaps" that hide some of the gaps around the top are a problem for that year. Are they triggering something that makes that window not work right?
Appreciate your help! Merry Christmas.

I need correct part names for my Camaro 89 IrocZ28. I also need prices and places to get the parts needed.


It sounds like what you need are dealer parts, items only available from GM rather than an auto parts store. You should be able to pick the parts out of a diagram in their parts dept.

I have a 2004 vw bug and the rear window came off track. And now i need to find how to take rear panel off so i can get to the window and put it back on track.


I take it must be a convertible? Open the roof and remove the rear seat pad and back rest. You'll see the rear quarter panel trim is one piece plastic! Remove the screws holding it in place and lift it up and lay it aside with the seatbelt extended. Unbolt, unplug and remove the speaker. There are 4 bolts that hold in the rear window lifter assembly, loosen the bolts and lift out the entire assembly and then correct the window problem! I advise you though to take it to a dealer as it is a very complicated operation that requires correct adjustments of the lifter assembly because the adjustments will definitely be out for the window to come off its position!!

2004 JAGUAR XKR CONV. THE PASSENGER WINDOW GOES DOWN WHEN DOOR IS OPENED BUT ROLLS BACK UP WHEN THE DOOR HANDLE IS RELEASED. IS THERE A RESET OR IS THE LATCH FAILING


Voltage fluctuations with a weak battery etc can cause loss of window memory. Start car, lower windows and hold the switch down for several seconds then repeat in the raised position. This will reset window positon memory.

I need some fitting instructions for a rear window guard on a landrover freelander


as simple as i can put it here goes , you will need to remove rear door panel using a flat blade tool, start at top and work your way round to hinge side,peel back the weather sheild about six inches down all along the top edge , this will reveal the mounting points on the back of the rear panel, leave the removable ends attached to the window guard and line up against rear panel, check which hole's need to be used and attach brackets to these points using bolts supplied in kit or what ever you have to hand. once mounted you can pull guard from brackets and put to one side , next is the rear panel if you place panel face down revealing back it will show two ovalish shape's highlighted by faint outline , this is where you will need to cut and file . when that is finished you can reinstall rear panel on to door, install rear guard and locking bolts. it always handy to have spare clips for door panels as the become brittle with age.

The convertible top is controlled by 2 electric motors. One for each side, located in the back corners near the rear 1/4 windows. Check 30A PWR ACC fuse in the panel left end dash panel. Convertible top switch located in center overhead by rear\view mirror. Make sure BYPASS switch L/R trunk is in NORMAL position. There is also a RELAY for the conv top in the R/R trunk. Hope this helps.

Convertible top


I have the same problem. I got acetone and removed the old glue from the glass. Then  I reglued it with gorilla glue. This stuff explands into this yellow hard foam, so you have to be careful not to put on too much and not to get it on the outside of the top. I stuffed the back window area inside the car with pillows to push the glass up, then carefully applied the glue to the edge of the glass with a paintbrush. Then I covered the glued area on the outside with plastic bags of kitty litter to hold the fabric against the glass. Takes 4-5 hours to dry. Worked beautifully so far. Got a little thick and a couple places and I removed the excess with a razor blade. Then on the inside, I applied a small amount of the same glue with a paintbrush to the inside of the little track round the window. Then inserted the edge of the headliner into the track. Did all of this work with the top slightly opened to take the pressure off. So far so good. One week and counting. Hopefully it will hold up to the heat and sun.

Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.
