Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
Back window coming off the fabric top. Seems glued together.Any suggestions as how to fix the problem or who would be able to fix the problem
The window coming unglued is not an unusual problem for that car.
The bad news? To fix it correctly, you have to replace the top (like $2,500+)
I did automotive trim work (upholstery) for 19 years and have seen a number of problem with convertible top back windows (not just VW).
But because of the design of the top, the back window insert style, and the heated back window, they don't come cheap.
You can try taking it by a local trim shop (listed in the phonebook under automotive upholstery) and see if they have a "patch" fix they can do, but I can say, no patch is going to fix it permanently.
Sorry I don't have better news, but it is the nature of that beast.
