Can you hear the motor whirring when the switch is activated? VW makes the bracket that holds the window out of plastic. You cannot buy a replacement bracket, so most likely the window regulator is broken and it needs to be replaced.

If you do not hear the motor, then the switch could be bad, or agin the regulator may need to be replaced. It's expensive to fix VW windows.

If the glass fell down you need a new window regulator....take a chair with you to the VW parts counter so you can sit down when they tell you how much they cost !!

I have a 2004 vw bug and the rear window came off track. And now i need to find how to take rear panel off so i can get to the window and put it back on track.


I take it must be a convertible? Open the roof and remove the rear seat pad and back rest. You'll see the rear quarter panel trim is one piece plastic! Remove the screws holding it in place and lift it up and lay it aside with the seatbelt extended. Unbolt, unplug and remove the speaker. There are 4 bolts that hold in the rear window lifter assembly, loosen the bolts and lift out the entire assembly and then correct the window problem! I advise you though to take it to a dealer as it is a very complicated operation that requires correct adjustments of the lifter assembly because the adjustments will definitely be out for the window to come off its position!!

The window is unglued on the bottom and sides.


The dealer can fix virtually any problem with a late model car. But, if you use epoxy or trim adhesive, you may be able to do the repair yourself.

I once used 'gel' super glue to exactly meter and put glue where it belongs and get an instant bond on rubber to glass or rubber to metal bonding.

The coolent light went off. the coolent level is full can this be the fuse? I hve 2005 vw turbo vw bug


Maybe, but the same fuse is used by other systems, and I would suspect other issues to arise, but check it out, I am wrong sometimes, hehe.
The sensor is on the bottom of the over flow. It seals in the coolant with a rubber o-ring. If this goes bad, it will leak coolant out the bottom and ruin the sensor.
The sensor pulls off with a sqeeze. Clean it with a can of electrical cleaner, and inspect for corrossion.
If either doesn't fix it, look for gremlins.
Good Luck!
