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 !!

Last one I did was in a 2004 VW NB convertible..... $800.00 installed

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!!

2004 vw beetle convertible - the inside of the convertible top near the back window has a "casement" along the edge of the fabric top that seems to attach or slide into a track near the window. mine has...


That happened to me. I tried to re-insert the window into the track but it was impossible. The dealer ordered some clips and I think I paid about $50 to have it fixed.

2003 beetle convertible top detached from window


My problem has been solved. I contacted the VW Customer Service and spoke with an advocate. The advocate and my dealership reached a conclusion and VW has decided to replace the items to alleviate my problem at their cost. Sometimes, dreams come true. Good luck to all of you who have similar problems with your VW Beetle convertible. It took quite a lot of patience and determination on my part, but the VW advocate was sympathetic to my plight since I'd never taken the vehicle anywhere else but the dealership for all repairs. The repairs have not been completed yet, so I cannot say whether or not the dilemma is, indeed, solved.

2004 vw beetle window fuse what # would be for the fuses? I don't have a manual & pannel doen't show.


Send me an email address and I'll send along a fuse block diagram for my daughters 1998 Beetle, it's most likely the same in 2004. Compare the arrangement with yours.

The 1998 diagram doesn't indicate any fuse in the inside fuse block that controls the power windows (even though my daughters 1998 has power windows). There is a metal fuse on the fuse block above the battery that controls the cars electrical system, but the diagram indicates that this should only be replaced by a VW Dealer.

Maybe you can call the local VW Dealer once you have a fuse block diagram to refer to. They should be willing to tell you over the phone.

Drivers side window


Buy a can of spray silicone, soak the window run channels with the spray, run the window up and down 4 or 5 times, this should cure the problem.

2004 Volkswagen convertable top


The window coming unglued is not an unusual problem for that car.
The bad news? To fix it correctly, you have to replace the top (like $2,500+)
I did automotive trim work (upholstery) for 19 years and have seen a number of problem with convertible top back windows (not just VW).
But because of the design of the top, the back window insert style, and the heated back window, they don't come cheap.
You can try taking it by a local trim shop (listed in the phonebook under automotive upholstery) and see if they have a "patch" fix they can do, but I can say, no patch is going to fix it permanently.
Sorry I don't have better news, but it is the nature of that beast.
