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.

2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 55,000 mi,
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....
