Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Window off track

I was installing aftermarket speakers in the front passenger side of my 1999 passat glx v6 and i noticed when i went to roll up the windows after all was said and done it rolled up funny, the mechanism still works it just rolls up at like a 90 degree angle. After playing around with it i noticed i can just pick the window up and put it in the proper place, but if i roll the window down it does the same thing.

You need to remove the interior door shell and check out the tracks and guides (the things that the metal frame that holds the window ride in). they can get worn and they will start popping out and if they do it once they usually keep doing it. after you look in there and see what is not happening like it should you can usually go to a shop that repairs car windows and buy the parts you need. i had to replace some parts in my volvo windows and after i did it lasted till the engine died many years later. hope that helps

Drivers side window


Hi, callen

Look under the door pocket, you may find some deep recesses inside which are some securing screws.

Look around the handle which you use to pull the door shut, it may have screw covers which need to be popped out.

Look behind the door lever which you use to open the door, I think there may be a screw cover in there with a screw behind it.

And last but not least. if your door panel has one of those little tweeter speakers built into it as well as the main speaker, then pop the speaker out and you may find a screw behind there.

Very best regards
