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 window no longer working - stuck in door. I will unfortunately have to resort to fixing it. I certainly hope it doesn't cost $500.

Both rear power windows no longer work from any control point in the car. I was told the regulators have both gone bad!!! What!!! Talk about an expensive fix...$89.00 just to look at the issue and $500.00 for replacing each regulator. Not worth buying another as I have seen this to be a very consistent issue at tdiclub and tdiforum....
