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.

I have a 2004 325CI BMW. My problem is that the top will not go down. When you push the button you hear nothing. The top was working fine one day, the next day it was not.


first thing to check is in the trunk there is a flap that folds up to give more trunk space when top is up. but needs to be manually pulled back down to allow top to operate i.e. so the top has room to fold up into whendown other wise the button will just blink when pressing button and nothing will happen.

My gas flap is stuck closed. We had to pry it open yesterday to fill the tank. 2 months ago the same thing happened, but it has worked since then.


If you have fuel door release cable & door is open, verify that cable moves in & out when you activate it. If yes you can adjust tab that it rests on so it will release properly. Just bend tab slightly inward at first, till it releases correctly.

My central locking on my 1997 vw golf just stopped working it sounded like it was trying to work but now does nothing. also the gas tank cover wont open as its stuck on lock...any advice on what i can try?


the gas flap is operated with the central locking,stand at rear of car with tailgate open,just inside to the right,under the floormat you will find the central locking pump.but first renew the batteries in the remotes then unlock the car with the key and hold the key over for 30 secs, the windows may go down,
then lock the car with the key and hold over for 30 secs,the windows may go up and the sunroof,if fitted will close,then unlock with remote button held down for 30 secs,this will reset alarm/central locking.
if you need to get to gas flap, pull carpet away in boot behind flap area and pull wire to unlock....
