Customer Question
Passat 99 driver side...

Passat 99 driver side window only makes a click sound when I press the switch

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

From inside door for a few months

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Passat yourself? What have you tried so far?

The regulator seems to be good

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It is a pay service?

Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
Is the click from the motor?

I think so a while ago I tried a different motor and would work sometimes so I left the old motor. The regulator is good
VW Mechanic: eauto, The Car Guy replied 4 months ago

Is the motor getting power??

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I would say so because, it makes a click sound. The voltage may be lower due to a bad ground or relay do you know the location for the power window relays and numbers? Thanks

Few years ago the car got into street water
