I ahve a Golf VI 1999 1.8.

I love my car, but i have a gripe.

My left front window stopped working.

The problem is a little white plastic runner has cracked.

My vw agent says they do not sell the part individually and i have to replace the whole mechanism, which costs $180!!!!

I have heard this is a common fault. Have you heard of this?

Is there any other solution other than replacing the whole mechanism?

Are there generic parts available?

Thanks

This is extrememly common. I don't know about S.Africa but VW sent out letters recently to US owners stating that they will pick up the tab on fixing windows within the first seven years of ownership.

you should go visit your dealership since i got the same letter stating that repairs will be free for the first 7 years.

Hope this helps
