Report: Power Windows Fail More Often Than Manually Operated Window Cranks
Volkswagen Jetta Problem
Average Mileage: 88,207 mi (10,000 mi - 196,000 mi)
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

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.

First the rear passenger window behind the driver failed. Next it was the driver window that failed and now it is the right rear passenger window. 3 down one more failure to go.

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.

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!

the 2 back windows don't go down. it would be intermittent but now not at all. One stopped at 8 yrs the other stopped at 120,000 miles.
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.

Rear Driver power window button(s, from door or dash) or motor make a noise, front passenger (shotgun) the button(s) will send the signal but the window will not lower. Took panel off and rear driver the plastics were worn down and cracked along with dead motor. "Shotgun" bad motor. online discounted fix for $40 be ALOT more at a shop or dealer.

Rear windows will not go up or down. I have to pull windows up by hand to close them. It's a constant hassle with them.

Window worked fine yesterday and today the driver side front window wouldn't go down. All other windows are still working from driver's door panel only the front driver side window stopped working. It was so sudden. It's been raining a lot I wonder if that has anything to do with the problem.
