  5. Passenger window going up and down two times before going all the way up

    Hi all I got a VW Beetle 2012 2.5 used so I am not very sure this is a known fault of this model. When hitting the switch to roll down the passenger window automatically, it rolled the window all the way down with no issue. However when I tried to roll it up, it went up half of the way and then...

  10. Convertible Rear window

    New Beetle Convertible
    I have a 2008 beetle convertible. When I put the roof down, all windows drop a little to allow the roof to go down.

  11. Window & Electrical Problem

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    The Power Windows on my son’s 1999 VW Beetle seem to have a mind of their own. On the driver's side, if he pulls the door apart and disconnects the window motor connector and reconnects it, the window will work fine for five or ten minutes. The same goes for disconnecting and reconnecting the...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    About six months ago I "repaired" my window regulator by ordering a kit off of ebay, watching a youtube video, and of course reading over these fine forums.
