Sounds like your regulator is shot. you can buy a new one from the dealer or an after market repair kit like this...

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.
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.
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
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
you have just found this out.it 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.....
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.
It is either a voltage drop to the solenoid or the starter is fautly.I am an auto electrician so I know what I am talking about.Measure the voltage with a multimeter at the solenoid wire from the key,it should not drop below 9 volts
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.
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
