I do not recommend this job unless you are a seasoned mechanic, VW dealership charges $1000 for a reason. They almost earn it on this one. but heres how it's done or how I did it any way. the complete job took me 4 hours and I been at this for 30 years. But a lot of this time was figuring out how it came apart. First, drop the top, pull up on seat bottom and remove it, remove center panel, remove 3 allen bolts at bottom on seat back and remove. headrests, they just pull off, raise top just enough to make hinged panels flip up. remove nut at top rear corner of side panel. you can see the back side of the nut and bolt it is on from the panels that flip up. Remove Nylon push lock rivet where seat belt goes through panel on rear, top, corner. Pull out on panel to release it, there is 5 or 6 nylon locks that just pull out of holes in the body. It will sound like your breaking it when the locks pop loose, or mine did. then lift to gain access to remove seat belt bolts and unplug flip panel motors. remove cable end from its clip. Pull seat belts through panel. Set panel a side. remove torx head bolt around oval panel that speaker is mounted on. unplug speaker and regulator and pull wire harness thru hole. remove 2 allen and 5 hex bolts at top where window would come out if it worked. pull up on plate and move rubber window seal to the side to remove plate. remove 2 nuts at bottom of regulator and one about half way up towards front, lift regulator and window up through top to gain access to 3 nuts that hold window to regulator, from the top lift window out first then regulator. Reverse to assemble it.

I have the same problem....the passenger rear demonstrated the same indications. Warranty just ran out a couple months ago. The drivers rear actuator was replaced about a year ago. I've seen other information on the net (unverified) that there is a 7 year replacement on these window actuators and I'd like to find a way to confirm (documentation from VoA rather than just verbal from a dealer). An streaming tutorial is available at <http://www.bentleypublishers.com/images/video/bentleyPubs.vw.nb.convertible.training.rearSideWindowRemoval.wmv>. It's pretty good at showing and telling how to remove the rear actuator. Since my 4 year warranty is up and if there is a 7 year on the actuator, it would probably only apply to the clip and I'd rather see it before the dealer in order to eliminate the dealer BSing me with some other part failing and then it not being covered. It's interesting to note that VWoA says that the clips on the 03 are the upgraded ones and so they can only tell the 02 and earlier owners with certainty that the clip is covered. I wouldn't be surprized if this is also BS.

There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 vw bug and the rear window came off

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!!

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.

2004 vw conv. right rear window regulator


We bought the rear window regulator repair kit. Searched the internet for directions for removal. took it out did the repair. But forgot to hook up a small cable from the slideing door just next to the flip door. Guess what. When the top came up it broke and I am sick about it. If anybody needs more pictures you are welcome to email me wegotchacovered@msn.com
