Volkswagen Beetle Problem
Average Mileage: 69,807 mi (4,300 mi - 170,199 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.
Bought this car less than a week ago and the back passenger window won't go up or down. I hear the motor and a crackling noise.

The passenger side window would go down, but not come back up. My car was still under warranty. VW replaced it twice. It still has this issue.

Back passenger's window is making grinding sound and not working at all. Not sure how much this is going to cost me. I just dropped a lot of money on fixing the transmission.

Back window on driver's side started making grinding noise and stopped working. A local vw garage ordered and installed a repair kit to fix the problem

The passenger window goes up & down but rattles like there's a lose wire inside the door panel when driving. A mechanic said it's the regulator which will have to be replaced?
