Greetings fellow Beetle lovers :D

The switch for the passenger window is the culprit for the mystery here.

I just bought Mrs Beetle, and at test drive, found that the switch for the passenger window located on the driver's door panel doesn't work. I reached over and tested the switch on the passenger's door, which works fine.

Began to research replacing the switch on the driver's door.

Then I discovered a box for a new switch, with a badly chipped up old switch inside, left in the glove box. Hum. :confused:

I continued to research replacing the switch on the driver's door; however, then (interestingly) when fiddling with the switch yet once again, and it was quiet this time, I could hear it "clicking" over on the passenger door. This takes the whole problem into a new realm, doesn't it?

Here you are experts, yet another mystery to solve! :D

Does the master switch on the drivers side control the passenger window?

Does the key in the drivers door lock control all the windows up or down?

Unfortunately I think there may be electronics built into the drivers window motor that controls things like the mirrors, door locks and windows. So you may not have a basic switch problem??

But I have also seen a lot of strange problems resolved by disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so. Worth a try is the price is right!

The plot thickens!

The Master switches on the driver's door controls all the windows up or down; however, for only the passenger window, it makes a click sound in the passenger door and the window doesn't respond.

The key in the driver's door does control all windows up and down :)

This problem existed before and after the battery was disconnected for 30 minutes.

I'll stay tuned! :D:D
