The window assembly has metal and plastic parts inter mixed that attach the metal to the drive motor via a cable. It is hard to see you will need a mirror and a pair of pliers. But the window all the way down vai the switch and look for a metal round metal part on the cable. This has to fit in the window assembly track.
I did a little bending and my rear window now works great.

The passanger door on my 98' Jetta GT will not open from the inside. It will open from the outside but it appears that the door handle on the inside will not work

Hi there?
I'm affraid you will have to take the door pannel off and inspect the cable from the handle to the latch. Sometime the end of the handle breaks off and will not pull the cable to open the door....
Good luck....

The fuel filter is under the right rear of the car near the fuel tank. If you face the car from the rear it is on the right side by the rear tire and the fuel tank. Easy to spot.

If you have a multimeter you can go to the underside of the master panel in the drivers door and independently check the switches for voltage or with no power to the switch assembly check for continuity. Good place to start. If you get continuity to through the switch then you need to check power to the window actuators in the doors.

98 Jetta...stopped while driving

During this past winter, I was driving my 98 Jetta GL and it suddenly shut down in the middle of the road. It restarted but would only go a little ways before doing the same thing. I got it checked out and it turns out I had to get new fuses. I knew someone who could put them in it was very cheap to fix.
