2002 Volkswagen Cabrio 72,653 mi,
Both driver and passenger side windows have been inoperable for the past two years, driver's side window just fell down into door yesterday. Estimate to repair was around $500!! :(
needed to replace both driver side and passenger side window regulators
Window regulator failed on drivers side first, a year later the passenger side. I recommend getting them both replaced at the same time, that way you don't have to do it twice.
2001 Volkswagen Cabrio 57,000 mi,
Windows wouldn't stay up on either passenger or driver side. Had the mechanisms replaced 2 times on each side. 4 years later they are making funny noises again :(
driver window failed to go up or down. pulled inside panel off found bad window regulator, changed but need adjusting
Have not fixed it, as the part is expensive.
