  2. Make sure the ignition if OFF, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Insert a suitable prytool in lower partition between the panel and grip recess.

  4. Unclip the grip recess upward out of door trim. Do NOT reach into grip depression while doing so, to prevent damage to brace.
  5. Press the locking lug against the connector (3 – arrow) and pull it off.

  2. The remainder of installation is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the following:
    • Before installing door trim, check all clips and replace as necessary, and insert into mounts of door trim.
    • After connecting battery, check that the vehicle equipment (radio, clock, electric windows) is operating properly.
    • If the Electronic Control Module (ECM) is subject to low voltage with ignition on, DTC memory and Readiness code must be checked with a scan tool.

SOURCE: Removing door panel of manual crank 2000 VW Beetle

Your window crank is held on by a clip at the base of the crank handle. You need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle) to get behind the base and pull the clip off of the crank.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

SOURCE: Interior trim panel removal instruction

Normal 0 . Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

2009 vw Routan. Drivers side power door opens with switch but will not close with any of the switches or the remote. Can I fix this myself?

It is probably just a linkage adjustment or a bush has fallen out, getting the door trim off will be the challenge. Once you can see inside the door work the switch to see what moves, keep you fingers out of the way of the linkages. You should be able to see what the problem is.
Hope this helps
