Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta

Drivers side window fell out

I am writing about my drivers side window in my 2004 Jetta wagon it has fallen out and I have the entire window in tact. Prior to falling out, when I pushed the button to roll down the window it was buzzing but not moving, so it seemed to be unseated from the track.

I went to bring it in and they want to charge me more than I cn afford 175 for re installing the window. So I want to do it but was wondering how to take the door panel off so that I can access it.

1. which tool? I saw the two bolts on the bottom of the door?
2.) any other things I should look out for?

I have worked with a Subaru replacing the door and window so I am generally familiar with the procedure.

If its electric windows ! remove the end panal round the switches to get to the srews behind there,a small screw in the end nearest the dash ,small screws in bottom of card ,pop the door panel off,you will see 2 plastic rubber bungs,take those out and put your switches back onto the loom,move the regulator to where the bungs have been removed,slacken the 2 10mm bolts,slide your window back in and tighten them up,refit parts removed..

VW bettle 2000 power window fell down power motor works but won't lift window drivers side

You may have a number of problems, all can be answered by removing the door pnl and inspecting. The window may have fallen out of the track, the window motor may have fallen out of the regulator, the motor's drive system may have stripped or broken, the regulator itself may have failed or broken or the window is no longer attached to the regulator. Pull the pnl and start inspecting. Good luck!

Very difficult. You have to open the inside access door on the drivers side, remove the amp and wheel well cover, pinch the tabs and the bulb cluster will release. The taillight assembly is bolted from inside of the car, so it can't be done outside.

Drivers side door wont open from inside, window problems

It is most likely a rod has fallen off inside the door. You may have to use a coat-hanger to read down inside and pull back on door latch to open it up.
Then after it is opened, remove screws on inner door panel, remove window/lock controls, take a big flat-head screwdriver and gently pry next to the plastic tabs holding on door panel. Remove door panel and put window back on track , and replace or reattach door handle rods.
