2001 new beetle power window problem

I???m trying to repair the passenger side power window. The cable is twisted and resembled a plate of spagetti after I got inside the door panel and took a look. Problem is I can not remove the inner panel of the door to get to the window. What do I need to do to get in there? While searching last night I saw that this has happened to other NB owners. Was there a recall for this? We just spent over $700 for a new water pump for this car and can???t afford another expensive repair. Any help would be much appreciated.

Report abuse: My passenger window is stuck down and when I try to move it up or down there is a grinding sound.  I tried to remove the door panel but cant seem to get it off.  Can you help?  Is there some trick to it?  I removed the bottom three screws and popped off a few snaps but there must be something else to it that I don't know. Same problem as the first post, removed outer panel, removed motor, spagetti cable, see there is a regulator for sale on the net, complete assembly, How do you get the inner panel off after removong all the torx screws???

You will see two plastic bungs,take them out,you must get to the two 10mm bolts that hold the window to the requlator,then you can remove the panel.a very common problem on beetles and golfs..

Don´t despair, it´s a nice car you got there. If it´s still under warranty, it´s probably best just to take it in for a brand repair. You probably have a short circuit within the mirror casing, with a plus cable touching the metal body work. If you take the mirror off by gently pulling it with the help of a plastic ruler, you would probably find the culprit.

2002Beetle Power Windows constantly breaking, looking for parts

You have 2 options..........1) go to the nearest junk yard and purchase the assembly as they probably won't sell you just the plastic pieces or.......2) try the dealership as those pieces are more than likely a dealer item only.

The cable came off for my power window

definetly have to remove the inner. i would have to imagine that if it came off then you have to replace it, it is probably frayed or twisted. if it is frayed or twisted, there is no way to fix it. you have to replace it.
