window regulator on 1992 Volkswagen Corrado

What is the purpose of the window regulator? Also my window came down and will not go up, the cable has it jammed in the door. What do I buy to fix the problem?

The window regulator manages the power window motor's connection to the actual up-and-down action of the window. It's often a cable threaded through a metal superstructure. If the window is down and won't come back up, you probably will have to replace the entire window regulator--I've had the problem in a Nissan and couldn't fix what was wrong with the regulator. Had to get a whole new one.

I had the same problem, the part cost me approx 40.00 bucks. not a real big issue...the regulator is part of the hole mechinism the brings the wondow back up. i replaced mine by myself in about an hour...Its a hassel, but not to big of a problem and its cheap to fix.
how did you replace the switch where is the switch located and how do we get to it ?
Your window regulator has failed in a very typical fashion.
Other than replacement window regulators are not repairable.Just specify which door it is for and whether it is manual or power windows.
I just got mine fixed at VW dealership and they charged me $500!!!! Go to a private dealer. Parts are expensive unfortunately.
