Re: Put me on the list........ (XplodGTI)

thought they recalled them, you did't get it changed?
yeah, I know, it happened to me. I was very angry because I was going on a long trip the next day.

Re: Put me on the list........ (XplodGTI)

Well you can put us both in the same boat as my passenger window went Saturday afternoon too.
My problem is that i bought used so i never got the recall notice.
Think a dealer would still help me out? If not, how bad is the damage to get fixed? Thankfully, i was able to get the window back up before it rained.

Re: Put me on the list........ (XplodGTI)

Scheduled appointment for tomorrow morning with 1st Team VW in Roanoke VA. As soon as i mentioned the window falling into the door, the service manager said and I quote, "no problem, bring it in tomorrow at 8am and we'll get you in on an emergency basis and have it fixed in a couple hours".
Looks like they have finally gotten used to this problem at the dealers and the manager even told me that they treat it as warrantied work now. Now i just gotta get outta bed in time to get there.

I unfortunatly have manual windows also.
Does the window regulators affect manual also?
Probally a stupid question, but i am unsure.
If it does i can just bring to vw to get the regulators changed right?

You're in the clear. You only have to worry about it with the power windows.

Re: Put me on the list........ (XplodGTI)

I have a 2002 Jetta 1.8T and my rear driver's side window takes time to "kick in" when I try to close it... opening works fine, but when I go to put it up, it takes a bit before it starts to close... passanger side is normal still...
Is this a related issue?

This just started about 2 weeks ago...
