04 Beetle Driver's side window sensor issue (maybe?)

The driver's side window stays up when closing the door (after getting out). It doesn't slide down to clear the convertible top anymore. If you shut the door, then reopen it, it will drop down to clear the top and then roll back up to close it. Is this a sensor that needs replacing?

Not likely. You have a defective window regulator. To fix remove the door panel. Peel down the warer barier. Remove the window motor and check it. If the plastic plugs are defective replace. To remove the window regulator you will need a 1/4 inch punch to punch out the rivits and 1/4 inch drill to drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and lock nuts.

Yes it needs to be replaced...cost around $300.00. You can insert ur key in the door and let the window down a tad and when getting in and when getting out roll the window down a little and roll them back up with the key when ur out of the vehicle.That's what we did till we got the money to fix it.

When I open the driver side door, the auto window drop feature malfunctions: either it does not open slightly, or it closes early, before I close the door. Where is the sensor/regulator? Car is a 2007...


Sensor is in the door switch. You could try a little wd 40 into the key hole(could just be sticking). Not easy to repair. You could do further damage to door.

Window sensor drivers side


as far as the window goes... here is the full reset procedure. I beleve in your case you only need to do part #2

GLASS RESET PROCEDURE: If window is hindered whilst closing, it will open again immediately. Attention: does not work when using car key to open/close window. After window has opened, lift and hold appropriate switch within 10 seconds. If window is still hindered it will stop closing. After window has stopped, lift switch again within 5 seconds in order to close window. It will now close without roll-back function.

2. To reinstall this function: Lock vehicle from outside via driver’s door. When doing this, please ensure that all windows are completely closed. Unlock vehicle and then lock it again via driver’s door. Hold key in locking position for at least 1 second.

hope this help.
p.s. find a new dealership!!!

If all fuses etc check out, look at wiring harness inside loom that is located near door hinge area of drivers door for bared or broken wires. Not uncommon for wires to get ruined especially at drivers door, as it is opened & closed the most.

Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.
