I have researched and took the time to take apart my door panel and exterior door skin to investigate why my driver front side window won't roll up or down. When I press on the switch, there is a 'electronic click' noise but no function of the window. Many past VW owners say it's the window regulator but I don't see anything faulty with mine. The tension of the cables are all strong and there are no tangles or anything visibly damaged to the regular and rails. It rolls down and up smoothly when I pull it down and up.
I already checked the fuse first thing and it's still in tact. The door switch operates all other windows and child lock. It even lights up. So, I eliminated the switch as a problem.
I took the gamble to buy a new motor and module, installed it and it still does not roll up/down. Same issue.
I checked the harness around the door jam, and though everything is wrapped, it doesnt' appear that anything is wrong.
What is left for me to check?
Any input would be appreciated.
