Thread: window stuck in up position with dead motor

    Default window stuck in up position with dead motor

    My front passenger window on my 98 jetta wolfsburg is stuck in the up position. I think the motor is dead. The other windows work fine. Nothing happens when I press the buttons or use the key. The problem is I can't take out the regulator assembly to change the motor because the window won't budge. Please let me know your thoughts.

    Yea I have similar problems in my car. Only working window is the drivers.lol
    When my passenger door did get stuck down in the mid of January I had to pop off the door pannel and move the window by hand. It's the only way to get at it. I just ordered a window motor to start fixing mine now that weather is better. When you fix yours let us know how it goes. I'm new to working on my own car but I love fixing stuff I've never seen so 3windows should be great

    Obviously I understand I have to take the door apart. The problem is I cant get to the regulator clamps that are holding the window to loosen the nuts and remove the window because it is stuck in the up position. It need to be down to get to those nuts. Any ideas?
