One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.Google+

Driver side widow will not roll up or down using switch inside car or key from outside. I have. Looked at fuse panel and not found a culprit.

Twice in my first 2 months of owning my Jetta Sportwagen I have had the driver's side power window fail to go up. The first time I was able to push it up eventually the same day. I will try again to close the window this afternoon when I go home from work.

Window just stopped working. First it was the front drivers side controls. (I could still operate individually but not at the console on drivers side. ) Now this week clear out of the blue the sun roof will not close and today the drivers side passenger window will not go up. Says no entry on control panel and I pushed nothing or changed nothing. What is up with this? Very frustrating and of course it is going to rain here today and I have to go to work. Please help!

Power window D-side fell down. Motor runs, window won't come up.
So far I got an estimate of $280.00 and decided to DIY. We'll see.
Both rear windows have failed. I was told the first one was due to a "shear pin", which was repaired under warranty. The second has just failed, and only 600 miles out of warranty. Not sure if I want another VW.
My windows have malfunctioned since day one! All four windows have malfunctioned! The problem is intermittent and seldom will happen when the VW mechanics check the problem out. The dealer says VW will not authorize their mechanics to just start throwing parts into this brand new Jetta even though there mechanics have actually witnessed the problem. I do like the amazing milage I get on this TDi but if one cannot get cooperation from VW I would think twice before ever purchasing a VW again. If someone can help me with this problem it would be greatfully appreciated.
