Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
It sounds like the window riser might be bad. It's the mechanism that is driven by the window lift motor and is attached to the glass in two places. The plastic gears may have stripped or one of the cables might have detached from the riser. Pretty common. You can, for now, detach the glass from the riser by loosening the two securing screws or bolts (I can't remember which) that hold the riser clamps onto the glass. I have made a small stick that will keep the window up after I loosen it from the riser. You can also duct tape it up but that's tough in the cold. You will then have a closed window until you buy and install a new riser assembly.
