This a is not a cheap repair, volkswagon do not make replacing windows and window regulators easy at all, average price around $300 or more depending on shop rates, and times. If you really want it fix, open your wallet if you can stand it not working, then leave it up.

Is there a fuse for the window switch


Which window switch ? RT DOOR CB-circuit breaker , do you know what a circuit breaker is ? 25A (System power for right rear window)
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window
The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 positions, Up and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.


The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger door module (PDM)


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
LR power window switch


?€¢
RR power window switch


?€¢
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches


?€¢
Window lockout switch


?€¢
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)


?€¢
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)


?€¢
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)


If you not sure about any of this I suggest you take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop .
