2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Windows are Fixed

October 1, 2012

2012 Volkswagen Beetle

We delivered our 2012 Volkswagen Beetle to Volkswagen Santa Monica to address its failed auto-window operation. Two days later the car was back in our hands and, we hope, the problem fixed. Here is what happened:

First, VW inspected the seals to confirm they were not deformed. Those checked out fine. Then, we're guessing to cover all bases, the window motors and regulators were replaced on both the driver and passenger sides. The windows now operate as intended.
