It is stuck at 2/5 way down, meaning 2/5 is open and 3/5 closed. It goes down but not up. I was trying to close it when it got stuck and I didn't realize what was happening and thought I pushed the switch the wrong way so I opened it even more. Now, it is just stuck and I am not going to try to see if it goes down anymore. I will have to check for the recall. Somehow I think it won't cover with my luck these days.
I have had the passenger rear window get stuck in the up position once, the front passenger window twice in the up position and the drivers side front window stuck in the up position once as well. Both front windows got stuck at the same time at 56k miles and they were covered. The first time they went the car was under warranty.
In all cases the motor was fine, just some lousy clips that keep coming off.
I just called the dealership and they said that since the car is out of warranty, they can't gaurantee that it falls under the "clip" problem that's cover by the extended 7 years. I will have to bring the car in for them to check if it is indeed the clip and if not, I would have to pay them 2 hours of labor @ $98/hour. Are you kidding me, if it's not the clip then I will have to pay them $196 just for the "diagonosis" and nothing will be fixed! And the lady told me that I would have to make an appointment because they are very busy!?!
Removing the door innards to get to the clips are not diffucult.
There is a howto on vortex I think.
Just off the top of my head...
The inside door handle has a plastic cover that pops off (use a flathead screwdriver and pry up on it from the fabric side). 2 large 3# phillips head screws, remove.
1# phillips head screw by the tweeter. Need to use a small screwdriver to access it.
3 T20 screws at the bottom of the door.
Now you can pry the inside door covering off and lift up. Roll the window down slightly, I'd say 2-3 inches. There are two rubber plugs that you can open up and access the window clips. Rolling the windows up and down will position the clips to where you can unscrew them. It will also give access to seeing the damn things. You may have to use a small mirror on a stick and a flashlight to see anything, because to remove the next part you have to remove the lock and window, and if the window clips are broken that might be hard to do (can you get somebody to lift the window up while you try to roll it up?).
The clips are not expensive. I'm sure you can get it fixed by a fellow TDI'er for a very reasonable price. Dealers... ugh. I can't think of one thing I would go to the dealer for that I can't either fix myself or get fixed by one of the brethren here.
Picture...Jessica's pliable cartoon body stretch across her car, the toe on her left cartoon foot activating the "up" switch while both her cartoon hands give the window a manual assist to get it up...
