Golf 4 'Comfortline' front passenger electric window

During last two operations grinding sound heard .... Now the window stays down. HOW DO I OPEN UP THE PANEL TO INSPECT FOR a) loose screws OR b) loose or broken gear teeth c) other faults inside

  • georgemassyn Jan 22, 2009 turned out to be a brilliant step for step guide for my diy fix. I now have the panel out & discovered that two plastic window support brackets are broken. Now the next problem is that parts dealers as well as agents only want to sell the complete regulator kit for a rediculous price when the only broken components are two small pieces of plastic. I am still working my way around this challemnge !

I have a 2010 Toyota Camry with a front passenger window problem. The window goes up and comes right back down sometimes when I push the button to roll the window up. The window will finally stay up...

Hello Susan..... What you are experiencing is the jam protection function: During automatic
closing operation, the window stops and opens half way if something gets caught
between the window and window frame. If the window receives a strong impact,
this function may work even if nothing is caught.

If the power window does not operate automatically or the jam protection function does not operate correctly, you should normalize the power window
To normalize the power window:
1. Push down the power window switch and lower the windows fully.
2. Pull up the switch until the windows close and hold the switch for a second. Make sure that the window open and close automatically. If the power windows cannot be operated properly, have it
checked by your dealer.

My 2003 vw golf comfortline 1.4 petrol sounds like a diesel when started and driven oil level checked and ok

Sounds like an hydralic tappet is failing, try not to do many miles, get someone with experience to have a listen as soon as you can the last thing you need is for it to do real damage and leave you stranded.

Fingers crossed it will be a small issue.

VW's are VERY strong engines :o)

Golf 4. comfortline 1.6. 2002 model.

the hunting can be caused by leaks in the intake system.
these can usually be heard with the engine running & bonnet open and a hissing sound especially when blipping the throttle.
also check the crankcase breather hoses which go from the oil filler cap to just behind the coil pack, they are prone to cracking.
re. the acceleration, ther could be a problem with the throttle control unit.this is the unit the accellerator cable is connected to.
a scan with a diagnostic tool will tell you if that is the problem.

I cannot raise my passenger electric window in my Polo hatchback

Carefully remove the window switch, open it and spray electrical contact cleaner on contacts. Try it now. You may need to remove door panel and lubricate guides and tracks for window. Let me know.
