Repair kits dont last,get a complete change it remove the door card you will then see a steel panel with two rubber plugs in it,remove the plugs and refit the electric window switch so you can then get to the bolts that hold the window in,slacken the bolts off then lift the window up and tape it to the top of the door,undo the retaining bolts round the panel and pull the panel back to realease the wiring behind it.....refit is reversal of removing

VW bettle 2000 power window fell down power motor works but won't lift window drivers side

You may have a number of problems, all can be answered by removing the door pnl and inspecting. The window may have fallen out of the track, the window motor may have fallen out of the regulator, the motor's drive system may have stripped or broken, the regulator itself may have failed or broken or the window is no longer attached to the regulator. Pull the pnl and start inspecting. Good luck!

Driver door window off track i think, what exactly do i need to do to fix it myself?

Needs a new window regulator mechanism. VW window regulator problems are very common. The plastic cable guide wheels break and window drops down or jambs.

Last one I did was about $180.00 for a VW oe regulator kit.

How do I replace drivers side rear electric window in a VW golf 1.6 match 2003

Get a window from a junkyard or craigslist, take it to an auto glass shop and pay them $50 to install it. If you are talking about a regulator, then buy a new regulator on ebay, and again take it to an auto glass shop and have them install ir for you for about $50.00.

Right rear window will not go up 2005 VW bug convertible what is wrong?

Can you hear the motor whirring when the switch is activated? VW makes the bracket that holds the window out of plastic. You cannot buy a replacement bracket, so most likely the window regulator is broken and it needs to be replaced.

If you do not hear the motor, then the switch could be bad, or agin the regulator may need to be replaced. It's expensive to fix VW windows.

Driver side electric window won't go up or down

my best guess would be the window regulator, vw has never been able to build them correctly. when the door panel is removed to gain access to the lifter check the window lifter motor. before replacing the regulator. also make sure the window switch is sending/ recieving power.
