Take a good look at wiring running in to door at hinged end. You may have to open up the loom enough to see wires. Look for an area that appears weak,kinked, or shows signs of where it bends all the time, you'll probably find a wire or 2 showing signs of cracks, or ready to break. Disconnect battery for safety before cutting.Cut wire(s) at weak point, strip both ends,slide some shrink tube down one end past stripped part, then solder together if possible, but if not available, a good **** connector if you have room, but also shrink tube it after you crimp it, for added strength & protection.

2003 new beetle convertible. Driver's side window will not lower 1/2" when door is opened to seal properly when the door is closed. Is there a simple fix?


Memory not set.

Raise window and keep holding switch down for 5 seconds to set memory.

Do same for down.

Try it and see if up stop memory set.

Driver side window does not want to roll down the 1/2 inch when opening and closing the door...then the door doesn't close, gets hung up on the convertible top....any cheap fix? can't afford dealer work...


This works on many different cars,porsche,bentley,bmw etc.I Hope it works on yours.Open window enter car,make sure all doors are firmly shut.Close and open window two or three times.Should reprogram.

as far as the window goes... here is the full reset procedure. I beleve in your case you only need to do part #2

GLASS RESET PROCEDURE: If window is hindered whilst closing, it will open again immediately. Attention: does not work when using car key to open/close window. After window has opened, lift and hold appropriate switch within 10 seconds. If window is still hindered it will stop closing. After window has stopped, lift switch again within 5 seconds in order to close window. It will now close without roll-back function.

2. To reinstall this function: Lock vehicle from outside via driver’s door. When doing this, please ensure that all windows are completely closed. Unlock vehicle and then lock it again via driver’s door. Hold key in locking position for at least 1 second.

hope this help.
p.s. find a new dealership!!!

Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Power Window Release


i would think the door is not recognised as being opened.if the interior or door light does not work when the door is opened its probally due to a faulty microswitch in the door lock mechanism,the whole lock mechanism will need to be replaced.

Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.
