Re: Drive side windows not working properly.
Take off every removable plastic bit and look for screws that hold the
inner door panel on. Take off any little plastic caps, see if a power
window switch pries up easily, maybe a speaker grille comes off.
Don't force the inner panel off--if it seems really tight, look for another hidden screw!

has the window frozen to the frame?or can you hear motor trying to work?...if so defrost window... try this.put key in door and hold over to unlock,all windows will drop.if drivers window still not working could be motor burned out.
(auto drop/raise system not fitted to all vw cars)
If your window should lower/raise slightly,when opening/closing.
Make sure other door is shut
Open drivers door,lower window,enter car,shut door,raise/lower several times
Providing you have no other problems this will reset window.
It is either the motor of the switch. Operate the switch while listening where the sound is coming from in the door. Then while you are trying to raise the window, hit the interior door panel with some force, not enough to break anything, but hard enough to contact the motor. If it is binding it should allow the window to raise. If it is trying to raise it is probably the motor.
the actual power window motor is getting old and probably needs replacement. as they age they get slower and picky about which way they want to go, outside temp also affects the operation also. in warmer weather they tend to work better
Have you checked with a volt meter that you are getting 12volts at the switch? If you have voltage coming to and going out of the switch then your problem is the motor that raises and lowers the window. There are many Ebay vendors that sell replacement motors for way less than a factory brand unit. Search for Tahoe power window motor - I got lots of hits, cost around $38. Changing it takes a little time and effort (about 3 wrenches hard) but can be done if you want to save a bunch of bucks.
