I have a 2008 beetle convertible driver side window will not come up.

Do you hear the motor running?

If yes, it is likely that your window regulator clips broke. may stock them. Their direct contact is

Is the glass 'trying' to come up when you push the up button?

If the motor is not running (but everything else in the door works), your may have a bad motor.

The passenger side window, something broke down in the door, the motor for the power windows still works, but there is nothing holding the window up? What broke? Is it a do it yourself job to fix it?

Its the window regulator thats broke. Most are made with plastic brackets and cable. The plastic breaks and the cable goes nuts then nothing is holding the window. You need to get a regulator, if you can take the door panel off you should be able to handle installing the window regulator.

My window regulator and clips broke on the passenger side of my 1999 grand am. where can i get replacement parts?

these clips and regulators are often reproduced as aftermarket parts. sometime napa or autozone checker etc. will have these parts.
I usually go to the dealership for the clips, because that is the easiest way to get the correct ones and they are not too expensive.
Alot of the time on these windows the clips will break and the regulater is still ok.
Confirm the regulator needs to be replaced before buying one. if the roller is broke off, I have been able to buy just the roller, and replace just the roler. but it has been a long time and I dont remember where I got the roller, or if it was a roller specificly for the car I was working on.

2000 volkswagen power window won't go up

the problem is the window clips that connect window to regulator, it is a very common problem and there is a factory recall for the clips that fail. return to your local realership and they will rebuild both doors regulators with upgraded clips

Need help with fixing power window

I'm pretty sure, that is sold as a regulator unit only. And it's not cheap. Sometimes it's cheaper at a glass place than the dealer.

Most likely the Black Plastic piece is a gromett, and it goes on to the regulator then snaps into the window's cut out hole, this allows the window to secure it self to the regulator.

Look or feel down on the bottom of the inside of the door, and see if theres any thing else that might of come off or broke, like a pin or a clip, once you secure the gromet to the window there should be a clip or a push pin that holds it into place.

Let me know if this helps, I will try to find a picture of the regulator diagram for you it might take some time.
