Beetle 2001 door window goes up half way and comes back down

The window is out of alignment on the tracks. It has a sensor that tells it when there is too much resistance when rolling up, to keep you from getting your fingers smashed if they're in the way. The misalignment is causing too much load on the motor, so it thinks something is in the way and lowers the window back down.

On my car, you can get the window to go all the way up by rolling it up and stopping before it starts to bind, then place your hand flat on the glass and pull toward the back of the car while pressing the button.

The fix is that you have to pull the door panel off, and inside are two large black rubber plugs. Remove them both, reconnect the window switches, then lower the window to the point where two bolts on the frame at the bottom of the glass are visible through the holes. Loosen the bolts and adjust the position of the window, then tighten them again. Verify that it rolls up and down without binding; if not, repeat the adjustment procedure until it does.

Reinstall the rubber plugs and replace the door panel. Unless there's something mechanically broken inside the door tracks, you should be good to go.

Could be something binding in one of the tracks - did you check the movement of the glass with the motor out of the door ?

I have problems rolling up my driver's side window in My Audi TT 2001 Convertible. It stopped working for months, then suddenly did work today for a while. Unfortunately, window is half way up, but...

well it one of three things the window motor, the window regulator, or you intermindently have no power to that window, start by checking for power at the window switch and then if you have power there the check for pwer at the motor which will require you to remove the door pannel, and you test for power with a multimeter or test light you can get at any auto store. so if there is power, and you dont hear a binding, grinding noise the motor is bad but its a whole lot easier to replace the window motor and regulator at the same time

1999 A6. Driver's side window goes down but then

there are many reasons , but the most common is a worn and week motor or a ground problem giving too low voltage , or the window guides are worn too thin . best thing to do is put a voltage meter on the motor and roll up the window , look for voltage increases or voltage drop .

VW Beetle the drivers side window goes half way up but stops

sounds like you have a bad regulator. this is caused by the cables in the regulator becomming dry and start to bind up and then break causing the window to free fall down.
