gti: reg..I remove the drivers door inside pannel..fully open

This answer was rated:

I have a Peu 806 , model gtx gti, 1997cc, reg 4/2000. How please do I remove the drivers door inside pannel. The window every now and again will not open, This time I had it fully open and it will not close. I can hear a relay clicking in the door but no movement of window

Billy :

Hello and thank you for using Just answer! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask if further info is needed.

Billy :

I will first include a picture of all the parts in your door's trim panel, so you get how all the parts are fitted, and you remove successfully.............however, make sure you are very careful as the plastics are very fragile....

Billy :

This document includes all the parts, and the bolts and screws and clippers' locations.........

Billy :

After removing, i would first check the following in your case:

Billy :

- check the wiring connectors, make sure all is tight, and clean contacts....

Billy :

- check and lube the window rails, as these might be causing the issue

Billy :

- check for any broken mechanism (although that is unlikely)

Billy :

Thank you for trusting JA and myself!

Customer:

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX still not sure how to get panel off when screws are out, Stan

Billy :

Hello Stan,

Billy :

Once the screws and clippers are out.....

Billy :

You proceed as following:

Billy :

- remove the speaker and respective trim

Billy :

- remove the trim where all the switches and buttons are located

Billy :

- remove the central standalone trim

Billy :

- then the remaining trim should slide up to be completely removed..........make sure you disconnect the door latch cable and all the connectors, before removing, or else these might be damaged.
