Need to take door panel off v.w golf 1997 to fix window that is not going up. Where to start???

  • 1 Unscrew the door lock knob and remove the plastic trim cover from the inner door handle. If the Jetta has power windows, unplug the wires to the power window controls. Remove the screws with a Phillips head screwdriver.
  • 2 Turn the window regulator handle to the 9 o'clock position if the car has manual windows. Using a small, flat head screwdriver, slide the spacer, which is at the 3 o'clock position, directly away from the handle, and remove both it and the handle.
  • 3 Use the small, flat head screwdriver to remove the speaker grille. Remove the mounting screws and pull the speaker from the door. When they become accessible, unplug the wires from the back of the speaker.
  • 4 Pry the door panel away from its retaining clips by sliding a long flat head screwdriver between the door panel and the door. Slowly remove the door panel, once all retaining clips have released, by pulling it out from the bottom, then lifting it up and forward to move the door panel around the interior door latch

  • are you replaceing the regulator that makes the window go up and down or the glass you didnt say you just asked how to take door panel off hope this helps tell me if you need more info

    Mk3 golf when central locking is activted the electric windows go

    you have just found this is a standard feature of all vw/audi/seat/skoda cars
    unlock/hold key over,the windows will go down
    lock/hold key over the windows will go up
    then unlock the car with the remote,car reset.
    sit in car with engine on,switch off engine(do not open any door)driver can open/close any window(you can even put your hand into window frame and it will rollback,all on its(not for fun)
    if windows rollback after you have used button to close them you may have sticky runners/rubbers.
    this is not in the hand book,tell all your friends.....only a german car.....

    Window nearside replacement how do I remove the door panel

    There will be a few screws on the interior door handle, You may have to remove they little push-in screw covers. When you have done that, you have to use a hand-held (small) pry bar, and gently pop the panel out of place. (there are clips made of plastic around the whole thing, and they a very easy to break. I know it sucks but i would recommend taking your golf into your local VW dealer. You can do it yourself, but if the dealer breaks the clips, they will replcae them, if you break them, your door will never sit flush like it did before, and you will have to buy more clips to fix that.

    1998 Volkswagon Golf stalling at stops

    My guess is that it isn't related to the starter at all, but that you unplugged a vacuum line by accident while installing the starter...take a look.

    Rear doors will not open with key for my vw golf

    There was a recall on this type of problem. A plastic piece would break off and jam the rod not allowing the doors in the back to open. If you are not the first owner the first step would be to see if this recall applies to your car and get it fixed for free.

    Remove window winders for mk3 Golf

    hi there, it will be one of two ways, either theres a little horse shoe shaped clip that sits inbetween the winder and the door panel, failing that then the middle of the winder should flick out and there will be a screw that screws through the winder and into the panel, hope this helps
