Question about Volkswagen Jetta

Open Question

Driver side glass of power window of my 2000 jetta fell inside the door. No apparent problem with any electrical mechanism. I've removed the inside panel, disconected and labelled all electrical connections I've pulled so I could put them back properly. I've removed all the screws from the metal panel that's behind the outside panel but I could not remove this metal panel. I could pull it out a little bit but in addition to some thick wires, something else towards the rear part of the door is preventing me from taking it completely off. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

SOURCE: driver door panel removal and re-connect door pull

You most likley have a damaged inside door handle. To remove the door panel, you must first remove the handle bezel. The trim piece around the handle. It is held in place by 4 retainer tabs, take a small flat screw driver, insert it between the bezel and handle. Gently pry away from the handle. If you look in the crack around the handle you will see the tabs. When you get that off, remove the switch assembly by prying up on it gently, unplug the wiring. There are 2 screws in the door panel where you pull the door shut, remove those also. Start at the bottom front of the door panel, pull outward firmly, but not violent. The retainers will come out, you will most likley break some, this is common. The inside handle is about $45 from your dealer. If it is the handle it is held in with 1 rivit, drill it out with a 3/16 drill. Replace the handle, reassemble. Good Luck.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Here are the instructions:
    • Gently remove the door panel of your Contour, ensuring that you don't break the three door clips that hold it on. As you pull the panel from the door, support the panel from below. This will ensure that none of the wiring inside the door is damaged. Release the wiring from the components inside the door, including the power window mechanism, power lock mechanism (if equipped) and the stereo speaker. Place the door panel in a safe area with the clips so they are accessible when you are ready to replace them.
    • 2Remove the window glass by sliding it up and out of the door. Support the glass from the bottom so it doesn't drop and break. Window glass for a Contour can cost around $150 to replace. After you remove the glass, put it in a safe place. You may want to wrap it in old towels or blankets to protect it until you are ready to reinstall it.

    • Unplug the wires from your Contour's window motor, and remove the screws from the window motor and regulator. Remove the power window motor and regulator from your Contour to make way for the new parts.

you will have to remove all the trim from inside of the door, remove the weather seal from behind the trim as well
if it has electric windows you will have to remove the winder as a unit from inside the door

once it is inside the door turn it around so it is in its normal position and place it in the channels where the glass runs, connect the electric winder mechanism and replace everything in reverse order as you removed it

Parts stores sell door panel removal tools. Just watch for hidden screws in the door panel. The passenger side motor is replaceable, just involves removing the door panel and removing the power motor. The regulator may need lubricated, I'd do the drivers side after you get the glass out.

Hello, NO you don't have to disarm airbags for glass.
You can pry off the door panel with big flathead screw driver. The panel is held on by plastic tabs that pry off and you can press them back on with fingers.
Before prying off panel, you should pry off electric window button panel. Also remove any screws that are visible. Sometimes the arm rest has little plastic covers with screws underneath it.
This is actually easier than it sounds.
Just remove any visible screws, and pry it off and lift up and she'll come off.
