fernando sandoval says:

some one told me that i have to reprogram when i replace a window electric motor, so I guess this is not the case?

EOP Johnson says:

This was a major help to me today. Thanks guys, from the bottom of my heart.

John Smith says:

will this work for a 2012? If it does, do you have the part number?
Thank you

Jason Thibault says:

any chance this is the same procedure on a 2012 jetta?

Joel VanKeeken says:

I have an 05 Jetta wagon tdi and the door looks nothing like this

21bkking says:

Great info here! The VW dealer said that the work would take a couple hours! Definitely didn't seem like a couple hours work, even though you sped up the tedious unscrewing of the screws! Thank guys appreciate all your DIY help!

Ashok Vaidya says:

please post 2011 jetta regulator replacement instructions

Luke Etheridge says:

The best video on this subject on YouTube. I’ve now changed 2 regulators using this video, which leaves no stone unturned and has absolutely immaculate instruction. Thanks guys, really appreciated!

Nicolas Flagey says:

Thanks a lot for this video! I had to change the regulator and wanted to remove/replace the cloth on the inside panel so this was extremely useful!
Question though: There are 2 types of T30 (8 long and 10 short) and the long ones either have thin washers (6 of them) or thick washers (2 of them) … since I did not pay attention about that difference when I took them off, I am wondering which goes back where?

jamie florek says:

Why do some window regulators come with that plate and some dont ? K and m code in 8th digit vin.

oscar barreiros says:

It’s this the same replacement part for a 2007 golf gti?

Colin Bligh says:

Is this the exact same procedure for the mk5 golf/rabbit? and is it essential to remove the inner door panel? I hear it isn't, but is the overall procedure easier if the inner door panel is removed?

Frankie De Choudens says:

Great video so helpful, thank you!!

esquared77 says:

Just a note about your video. You DONT have to remove the inner door panel. You can simply unbolt the plate that holds motor to the shell and unplug the connector, Also the factory info tells you to remove the side impact bar

Marcin Szczęsny says:

Thanks for your tutorial it was helpful for me.

I did it.

Best regards from Poland.

Scott Reilly says:

Brilliant video, just completed job without removing interior. Just save £250. Thanks again guys.

Navid Nima says:

Would this be the same process for the front passenger side regulator? I'm thinking yes?

Themachine says:

1A auto makes the best videos. Keep up the great work.

Said Yassine says:

Dan says:

Hello. I replaced my regulator and motor, but the window still doesnt work… It worked one time after I installed the new motor and regulator.. any suggestions?

Vegard Syrstad says:

Is this the same on a 2008 VW passat 3c ? 🙂

J Brew says:

I was actually replacing the wiring harness for the door, but this video was still a huge help. Thank you!

Erick Gonzalez says:

Excellent video thanks

Thomas Watkins says:

Is it about the same for a 2014?
