  1. Left drivers window open last night and it snowed: Help

    2008 Jetta SEL here. Came back to the car in the morning as it was snowing. Luckily it had just started snowing. First thing I tried to do was close the window, except it wouldn't go up! Kept hitting the button and nothing would happen. Made sure the window lock wasn't on. Tried the other...
  2. Window regulator replacement troubles

    I've just put in a new aftermarket window regulator on my 1997 Jetta GLS, driver's door. The original regulator suffered a broken cable.

  7. Master window switch

    First post here and hoping to find someone with similar problem. Driver's side master window/door lock switch does nothing to any windows or locks. I replaced with a used one and it intermittently worked. Must be something else but I'm struggling for answers. When I press window switches, I...
