2004 Beetle Convertible, rear window is getting unglued


I had the same problem with the window in my 2003 beetle convertible. I purchased 3m windo-weld super fast A10E2A and single step glass primer A13B5A also 3m. I ordered it online from Auto Body Toolmart. It was very easy to do and is in there really tight. Unlatch the top just enought to release the tension.
1. clean the window and remover any old glue with a razor blade
2. use acetone to make sure the rim around the glass is clean
3. apply thr gass primer and let dry
4. apply the glue which is black so put on a thin bead and I used gloves so I could make sure it was on both the window and also the fabric of the top. You must work fast because it sets up in 15 minutes.
5. Then take blue masking tape and secure the glass by taping all around the top. up and down and from side to side.
6. allow to dry for 6 to 12 hours. the clean off any extra glue with a razor.
The total cost was $39 dollars instead of having to buy a new tp

I need to know how to get my rear passenger window in my 2005 vw beetle convertible back on it's track


If the glass fell down you need a new window regulator....take a chair with you to the VW parts counter so you can sit down when they tell you how much they cost !!

Last one I did was in a 2004 VW NB convertible..... $800.00 installed

BACK WINDOW SEPARATING FROM CONVERTIBLE TOP


Your glass was originally heat sealed to the top material. When it begins delaminating, your only recourse is to replace the top because your new top will come with a new window. Any sticky gooey repairs are very temporary at best

My rear (electric) driver-side window will go down but will not go up all the way. It can be pulled up manually if someone depresses the window button and another person pulls up on the window itself. It's...


Sounds like a window regulator clip problem. VW extended the warranty on these years ago, but only on front windows.
It's possible vw might do it under warranty. Call their 1-800 # and ask...
There are tutorials on how to replace one online, but it's pretty involved...
