SOURCE: 97 VW Jetta right rear power window off track

There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.

  3. Insert a suitable prytool in lower partition between the panel and grip recess.

  2. The remainder of installation is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the following:
    • Before installing door trim, check all clips and replace as necessary, and insert into mounts of door trim.
    • After connecting battery, check that the vehicle equipment (radio, clock, electric windows) is operating properly.
    • If the Electronic Control Module (ECM) is subject to low voltage with ignition on, DTC memory and Readiness code must be checked with a scan tool.

SOURCE: Interior trim panel removal instruction

Normal 0 . Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

Be careful with what you use to clean this part. Only electrical cleaner or a VW approved spray is to be used. Check your air filter for clogging or a misfit in the intake ductwork.

Own a 2004 VW Phaeton V8. Recently bought it with 56,000 miles. Tire pressure warning indicator is on. Just filled tires and pressure is at correct level. Seems like a common problem. Is there anything...

Hi. It is very difficult to remove the Tire pressure warning system.
To reset the light, the vehicle must be driven for a period of about 20 minutes.After the pressures have been check(don't forget the spare, unless you have set the monitoring of it off). If this does not reset it, then there may be a fault in the system. This needs to be rectified by a VW franchise. The sensors are often damaged when the tyres are replaced.
Hope this helps.
