sounds like window has come out of runner but motor works to get window back up you will have to grab hold of glass each side and pull up to top of door ,then use motor switch in up operation to the stop and that will hold window but if you put switch opposite way window will fall again .

The clutch pedal on my passat stayed close to floor

sounds like a problem with the hydraulic clutch, either the master or slave cylinder was bypassing fluid and causing the low pedal.

Window off track

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

No power to Horn, lights, blinkers, ac and heater on 99 Passat V6

It could be your convenience control module. I had issues with my interior lights, alarm, windows, etc. All of that is controled by the ccm. In my car, 1999 passat sedan, it was located under the driver's feet. So I pulled up the carpet and the wire splices going into it were corroded. So I cut them and respliced. Problem solved.
