The windows only drop about 1/8" for the roof to free off,NOT 1/2".if the windows work with the key in the door,then the switch is faulty.

I have an 06 pt cruiser when I bought it couldn't open door from inside. Suddenly door opens from inside and window won't come down what's the problem


Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the power and ground at the master switch mount in the dash. Pin 12 is power at key on and pin 4 is the ground.

2. Next try driving the left front window by applying power to pins 13 and 14, switch polarity should drive the window up and down. If not, check for broken wires in the between "A" pillar and the door, then gain access to the window motor and try applying right at the motor.
Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the outside door handle switch. It should ground the Orange/Yellow wire when the handle is raised. Tech Tips: The power window should drop slightly whenever the door is opened. The ensures a tighter seal to the convertible top.

Driver side window does not want to roll down the 1/2 inch when opening and closing the door...then the door doesn't close, gets hung up on the convertible top....any cheap fix? can't afford dealer work...


This works on many different cars,porsche,bentley,bmw etc.I Hope it works on yours.Open window enter car,make sure all doors are firmly shut.Close and open window two or three times.Should reprogram.

04 Beetle Driver's side window sensor issue (maybe?)


Not likely. You have a defective window regulator. To fix remove the door panel. Peel down the warer barier. Remove the window motor and check it. If the plastic plugs are defective replace. To remove the window regulator you will need a 1/4 inch punch to punch out the rivits and 1/4 inch drill to drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and lock nuts.

2007 Beetle convertible, window doesn't drop


Possibly just a relay telling the window to lower slightly has gone bad. If it's only when the top is put up or down, you can either lower the windows yourself (most cost effective since it's not a major inconvenience), take it to a dealer if you are still under warranty, or check to see if there is a sensor or relay that has gone bad, causing this malfunction.

Window will not lower when door handle is pulled to open door.


VW window motors are known to be problematic. Lucky you had a service contract, otherwise you may have opted to replace the window motor yourself for substantially less cost.

Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Power Window Release


i would think the door is not recognised as being opened.if the interior or door light does not work when the door is opened its probally due to a faulty microswitch in the door lock mechanism,the whole lock mechanism will need to be replaced.

Beetle Convertible window problem


My wife's car is a 2004 convertible. We had the same problem. There is a switch built into the door latch assembly. Whenever you pull either the interior or exterior door handle, the switch lowers the door glass a certain amount.

We replaced the door latch assembly and that corrected the problem.
