My 2000 Beetle's driver window is going up slow. At times the auto pinch protection kicks on and goes down when it goes so slow. It is somewhat intermittent. Anyone else having this problem?...Is it a recall?

Just spray some silicone lubricant into the window channels.
It won't take much and it will solve your problem.

I just had the same problem 2 months ago, it's a warranty problem. Take it in to get looked at

Can you explain "window channel"? Is that along the bottom of the window with the two soft lips, or are you talking about the side wall, all exterior with out taking apart the window i'm assuming.
I've tried everything from spraying with silicone to cleaning the diffrent areas but unable to fix my slow window problem / sometime jam and roll back down.
I took apart the outter shell of the inside door panel (exposing all electrical connectors etc..) but hesitate to open up the next layer. I don't know how to proceed so I can have a look at the internal mechanism it self. Please help.
