I have a 2000 Jetta. The front passenger window fell off the tracks. I did have it repaired by the shop but later received a recall notice and was refunded my service costs.

While this information may not answer your direct question--just maybe, if your car was included in the recall--you could have it repaired with no cost.

I have a 1995 Jetta and I found the already posted answers to the above question helped me out with my problem: How do you get the window handle off from a door side panel that has manual roll up windows? The answer is that the window handle pops off by sliding the ring at the base of the window winder(handle). The mechanism is ingenious. It took a bit of finger strength, but no tools required. So don't do what I did at first, which was to try and pry the window winder off with a couple screwdrivers. I nearly broke the handle off. I was surprised at how easy the procedure was once I knew what to do.

How do you remove the window regulator on a 70 Chevelle?

Remove the armrest, door handle, and window handle. You will need a special tool to get the window handle off. They're cheap and you can get them at any auto parts store. Remove the screws at the bottom of the door panel then CAREFULLY pull the retaining clips out of the door by sliding a screwdriver between the panel and door where the clips are (you'll find them at the front and back) it is VERY easy to tear the backing of the door panel when removing them, so be careful and patient. Slide the door panel up to unhook the top of it from the door. Remove the window regulator bolts and carefully slide the rollers out of the window tracks. Carefully remove the window from the top of the door. slide the window regulator out.
