it is extremely high cost to replace regulators for the 2009 beetle. i was quoted over 94.00 for the part which is the kit 100 dollars for the labor. the back seat has to be removed to even get to the problem i was told that would take atleast 4-5 maybe 6 hours labor. so the total cost woule be 600+ Tax for a window to work properly. plastic covering of the window is looking better and better.

Recalls are for safety related issues that the Government mandates the car manufactures to do....You need to complain to VW to see if they will help with taht type of issue. Beetles are known to have window regulator problems. Good Luck.
