your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your
interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on
clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the
switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to
pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to
prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled,
pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.
If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

THis is common Too common. As I posted before.
As I posted in the Passat questions.
The jetta may slightly differ.
Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.
The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..
Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen
After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.
After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..
Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.
reverse to install
