Malfuntioning driver's side power window upon opening door lever.

2002 Porsche Carrera Convertible driver's side power door window is not working properly...the passenger side is working properly. When pulling the door handle there is a electronic switch that allows the window to roll down approximately 1/4 inch to clear the convertible plastic frame when opening. Upon closing the door the window automatically raises 1/4 inch for a tight seal. The electronic switch is working fine, but the window does not move up or down. The normal automatic window button for full open or close is operating correctly. However, when the glass nears the bottom of the down cycle there is a noticble 'clunk' sound...almost like it is free falling or popping?? Help

    Electronic hatch opened fine, but will not pull down to lock properly. The motor worked to open, but now doesn't work. Suspect electronics are a relay, reversal switch and striker sensing switch.

Right, its one of the following:
micro sensor in outside handle.
micro switch in inside handle.
micro switch inside lock mechinisum (needs new lock).
electric window control motor (even tho window works fine)
BUT, i think your problem could be a stretched window cable...... to test this do window up fully with door open. now push fairly hard pressure downwards on window as if to push it down manually, if window drops your 1/4 inch then bingo. if not, it was a good test that cost nothing.
i replaced all the above but mine ended up being a wiring problem where the wire loom goes from door to car. talk about find out the expensive way.

Get it to the dealer asap.

you definitely need to take apart the door. There's something not right inside.

Porsche parking brake light and convertible top

you should be able to get to the ebrake switch by the e brake lever. If you can, to get top up you can cross the two wires going to the switch together and get the top up normally with switch. If this turns the parking brake indicator on on the dash, then order yourself a new switch and replace.

Porsche carrera 4s,windows are both up,battery is disconnected,can't get the trunk open!

Behind the passenger side wheel covers, up towards the front bumper, is a stainless steel braided cable with a loop. Pull this to manually open the trunk. It is well hidden and an emergency solution to opening the trunk if the servo has failed, your fuse box power connection fails, or you have no power. Good luck

2002 BMW 325CI (convertible)power window on driver's side does not automatically go down slightly when the door is opened. I assume this is only on the convertible so the window clears the top. It normally...

My window on my vert was doing that. Short of opening up the door and trying to do it myself, I took it in to the BMW guys at Bimmerhaus. They readjusted the window for me and it was good to go. Pretty much cost 1 hour of labor and a couple of clamps. $100+ or thereabouts.

Porsche 2002 carerra cab driver side window does not go down

Obvious stuff. The key has to be in the ON position. Fuses should be located on left side near kick panel it might be third row all the way left side, 30 amp fuse. Will the window operate if you open the door a little? Maybe getting stuck in door seal. Top up or down it won't work?
After that you have to get in to the door and see if motor still good or if wiring is good.

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.

1992 porsche carrera convertible top won't open. It starts to open then you hear a crunching noise from one of the top motors behind the seat

Replace the top motors or check cables from motors to top. There are 2 motors one for each side of the top.
