Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 99 VW Jetta wolfsburg (98 body style) and my drivers side window is stuck down - it goes up maybe an inch or two - sounds like its grinding when it does but then it rolls itself down again.....I took the door panel off and am now wondering what I should be looking for or doing to at the very least, get it to roll up. Its around 20 degrees here, and I can't use my car untill I fix it.Thanks

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.

It sounds like either the mixture is bad or you need a new 02 sensor. If you have never replaced the o2 sensor I would get that done anyway. Next I would get a general tune up and have your throttle body cleaned.

Missing thermostatic air cleaner


I believe it does. It should be in the bottom part of the air cleaner box. There should be a vacuum hose connected to it from the throttle body boot.
