Picked up a permanent fix to my power windows :-)
Installed the drivers side manual window regulator yesterday. Cleaned the regulators then packed them with Sil-Glyde and they are operating as smooth as butter :-).
Regulator installed in the door
I was going to mark/cut the hole for the manual regulator but it looks like VW already did it for me
. Just remove the tape on the back of the panel and instant hole.
Here's a picture showing the location of the manual regulator hole (located with finger) compared to the electric switch hole. I was going to cover the electric hole with a fold down cup holder...but they are pretty close and it looks like the window crank will hit the cup holder if I went that route. Going to have to scratch the head on this one for a bit and see what I come up with to cover the hole...want it to look professional and not a afterthought.
More to come...need to get back to driveway work :(
