My 2006 convertible beetle top and driver window will not roll down


Have you checked the fuses for these two systems? They each have their own fuse.

Window may not work due to a bad window switch, window motor or window regulator.

Convertible may be low on fluid. Check out this post:

Hi, I would say that you might have some of the below-mentioned problems in your vehicle. please look into it and then identify the problem and follow the steps to resolve the problem.

.1. I would request you to check your battery is properly charged or not. 

2. Go through all the wire connections visible to you to check is there any loose connection or not.if there are some loose connections fix it.

3. Now start your car and press the buttons to operate the windows and top, when you press the switch you might be able to hear the motor running in the background. If your motor is running then all the electrical components are working and there may be some rusting or the rubber beadings would have broken/slipped and have been blocking the function.

4. If you don't hear your motor running, then there is a problem with your electrical circuit.

Now once you have identified the problem it is necessary to take proper steps to fix it.

If you have experience in the mechanical job or you have proper pieces of equipment and have knowledge of operating those tools and repairing cars in past then, you should follow these steps:-

1. Open the door panel and remove pads and try to locate the rust or broken rubber bids which might be obstructing the windows to function. if you find one try to fix it carefully.

2. After the 1st step is completed move to next step and uses a multimeter to check the electrical components and wiring of the windows and the top to look for any break in the circuit which could happen due to damage in connecting wires, switch broken, loose connection and locate it and fix it.


I assure you that after following these steps your components will function properly. However, I want you that if you don't have any prior experience on any car don't attempt to repair this by yourself you may mess up and damage your car, just take it to a certified mechanic and get it fixed.
