even if the window hasnt fallen?

Yup, the cables are probably bound up. The easiest way is to take the door apart and check it out. It looks intimidating...but once you get things apart, its really pretty simple.
I was going through "OEM" regulators once a year and finally bought a cheap eBay regulator. So far its been in a year and still working. For $19 I won't complain.

I put clear silicone in the window track and shoved the window up into it. So far it's held it without falling down, I gave up on the windows in the car. However without A/C it gets a bit warm!!!

haha...the previous owner of my car ran long bolts through the inner door skin to keep the glass from going down.

I'm looking to fix mine as well.

My driver side front door just broke a few months ago, and i was stupid enough to take it to some rnadom shop and it cost me over $400, those jerks charged me $300 in labor. It would have only been $290 if i took it to a specialized VW shop. Stupid me for not shopping around...

I had to do all 4 regulators on my car when I got them. I got all 4 from the wreaker and they have been in for 2 years and still work perfect you just have to be carefull not to snap of the little tabs that hold the window on the regulator.
