Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Do I need to purchase a maintenance repair manual to safely remove my car door panel? I want to see what is up with the window.. I can't believe the regulator needs to be replace after only 2 years.
Should be able to do the job with a star screwdriver, possibly a set of allen keys,a small set of socket spanners, a flat blade screwdriver to pry the perimeter of the door trim away from the door.
Look for little round plastic plugs on the door arm rest as they cover the screws that hold the arm rest on to the door.
there maybe a plastic cover at the front corner of the window directly behind the mirror which may have to be removed as well if it is covering the edge of the trim, once all that is removed there will be plastic covering the large openings in the door behind the trim which gives you the access to the window etc, make sure this is put back and sealed as it is to stop water from entering into the car when it is raining.
Replace in reverse order
Hope this helps, have not actually worked on a volkswagen but most of the cars are the same setup
