SOURCE: Beetle Convertible window problem

My wife's car is a 2004 convertible. We had the same problem. There is a switch built into the door latch assembly. Whenever you pull either the interior or exterior door handle, the switch lowers the door glass a certain amount.

We replaced the door latch assembly and that corrected the problem.

SOURCE: 2002 volkswagen golf gti has a leak in the passerger foot well

hi from uk a common problem with leaks into foot wells are as rain runs down w/screen and inti the bulkhead area below w/screen accesable with bonnet open ? this water runs to either side to a drain hole and onto road via a rubber hose attached to these drains the bottom of hoses are flat so as to let water flow out but not inwards ok so far ?? now leaves and dust etc are sometimes carried to these drains resulting in eventual clogging at bottom and top of hoses so water collects in pools eventually finding its way into car ? take a look at these and ensure hoses are clear ??

Try "clearing the cache" by removing the negative battery cable for a few minutes. Before doing so, be sure you know how to reset the clock and radio codes & presets.

you have just found this out.it is a standard feature of all vw/audi/seat/skoda cars
unlock/hold key over,the windows will go down

then unlock the car with the remote,car reset.
sit in car with engine on,switch off engine(do not open any door)driver can open/close any window(you can even put your hand into window frame and it will rollback,all on its(not for fun)
if windows rollback after you have used button to close them you may have sticky runners/rubbers.

Can one ajust the window settings to open & close with remote.


NO this can not be done on models before 2009 and im not sure if it can on later models either. but what can be done is as follows

if you insert your key into the door lock from the outside you can open and close the windows. you may have to turn it to the lock position and then unlock and hold the key in this positoin until the windows open .
in the manual it also states that if the roof is down by turning the key in the door lock to the lock position will also close the roof the sunroof along with the windows.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Rear Window Switch Problem with Mk3 VW Golf 1.9TD


i had the same problem. After checking the window motor was not the problem i then checked the wiring harnes in the door. I beeped out all the connectors to make sure there were no broken wires and cleaned up all the contacts. The main connector looked quite corroded. I sprayed all the connectors with rust check and reassembled. The window is working fine now

Drivers side window wont close - completely open


If other windows work, it won't be the fuse. Probably switch on door, wiring at door hinge area, or motor. Did you try banging on the inside of the door panel about half way down while hitting the switch, or pulling up on window while someone pushes the switch? That's providing you can get a grip on the glass. Sometimes motor will hit a dead spot & sharp blow to panel, will get it moving again until better fix can be done.
