I had the same problem. My right rear window regulator had failed, and when my top went down it would not go up again due to the failed regulator damaging something in the top. Out of warranty, but low mileage, my service rep had VW pay for most of the cost of repair. They also determined that the left window regulator would need to be replaced too- and I had already just had them put in a battery, so they had VW pay for 65% and the dealership paid 15% so my cost for repair was low. Now if they can just get my airbag light to stay off- just did the front crash sensor recall and 2 days later my left headlight come on and off with every bump on the freeway- until I tapped the glass and now my airbag light is on again. I have been fighting with the stupid airbag sensor since I got the car.
