Customer Question
My back window went...

My back window went down and now will not go up. It is the back passenger window behind the driver's side. It is a 2003 VW Beetle convertible.

Mechanic's Assistant: Nice car. The VW Mechanic can help you with your '03 Beetle. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I cannot hear anything when I push the button. ie. no motor sound.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I would like to - recently single mom with only alimony to support me.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you ready to speak with the VW Mechanic now?

I am not ready to work on the car in the rain but if he can tell me what is wrong, I think I can get the parts and do it.

sorry for the delay............

Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”

There is a TECH Bulletin for this issue
Click Attachment below
You will need to remove the Panel & the Regulator to check the problem
It takes a certain amount of special tools & if you have not done this before, then you may want to seek someone local to do this.
Voltage & Ground needs to be checked at Window Motor to confirm the Ground & Voltage is reversing

Use of a VOM is needed to test
The way it works:
Ignition On
Switch held in Up position
One wire will have 12 Volts +
One wire will have Ground -

Switch held in Down position
The wire that had 12 Volts + is now Ground -
The wire that was Ground - is now 12 Volts +

If Voltage or Ground checks good at motor, replace motor.
If Voltage or Ground does not check good:
Check Switch Voltage & Ground.
Check for broken wires at Door / Kick Panel Boot
