That means the window regulator assembly needs to be replaced there is not way to fix the same and if you do it it will come of again so just get a new window regulator and replace it.

I need to replace the alternator on rabbit 2007. How remove?

Open windows aand a door, disconect battery. Alternator usually held on by 2 or 3 bolts, loosen all of them and then slide the alternator along the arme so that the drive belt becomes loose, remove belt and then remove the bolts. I am not sure how the electrical cables are attached on that make but these need to be disconected, take phot's to make sure that you reconect the wires in the correct way, or use masking tape to identify which cable goes where, I would still take phots just incase. Indeed and job should be photoed at each stage if you are not sure what to do, then you have a picture recored of what goes where. Hope this helps

Window reg gone on a4 cab ? sorced new part just not sure how to fit

The best way to see how something goes is to look in a salvage yard. Someone probably already has taken the door panel off of a car similar enough so that you don't even have to do anything in order to see how it all goes together.

There are basically 2 main kinds of window regulators, gear and cable. Electric windows often use a twisted 2 rod pair to make a flexible continuous gear in effect. The gear kind generally mount in the middle and have a pair of arms acting like a scissors, while the flexible cable ones pull straight up and down in a middle track.

Windows dont move down or up

you have to rebuild (which can be ghetto rigged, but never is reccomended) or replace the window winder units. they can be removed, find the rail which those loose cables came from and remove it, it should be an assembly with the winder motor attached. be sure to remove the bolt that attach to the window mount also. if you can locate the place where the end of the cable is supposed to mount (on a little slider thing) and make a new mount for the end of the cable, then take apart the winder motor spool, and re wind the cable inside the spool, then put it back together, you have ghetto rigged yopur winder. if you cant do all that, you will have to replace the whole unit at a cost of around $120.
