Question about 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio

95 vw cabrio back window won't go up

I can hear the motor trying to bring it up, repair shop told me it was a switch that would be $200 to replace. They put in the switch and that was not the issue now they are saying it's the motor for the auto windows....but I can hear it and they want $500 to look at it and fix it?? I am positive this is a common problem that I can fix, how can I get to the bottom of this myself I really would not like to be taken advantage of. Is there a diagram out there or some tips that I could try?

First off, if they could hear the motor, they took advantage of you already!! These windows are cable driven and there is no way to repair the motor and regulator assembly. The regulator you may be able to do by yourself depending on your skill level. A new (or used) window regulator will need to be purchased. Let me know what else you may need.

Drivers side power window stopped working in my 2001 vw cabrio. all other windows continue to work so i ruled out the fuse. what are the next steps of trouble shooting?


I'd try to see if I could hear the window motor working.
Otherwise, I'd remove the door panel and take a voltage reading at the window motor.
If ya have voltage, then we're looking at a window motor or a window regulator.

Hope this helps...

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.

My 95 vw cabrio shuts down both at 65 mph or just sitting in park


To keep it simple first, try replacing the fuel filter. They have a average life of around 30,000 to 40,000 miles or one year. you can pick one up at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools and you can also have the car scanned there for any DTC codes and it's free of charge. Keep me posted, be glad to help you getting your car running 100% again.

Look for a junkyard around that sells the window or buy one online for dirt cheap and then put it in yourself. It is not that hard just time consuming.
