    Sounds like convenience module to me, is it just the drivers door with issues mainly as you could check the loom that passes from the pillar to the door, maybe some wires have got damaged or broken.

    But definitely this is a central locking pump. It get wet. Remove it and check before is to late.

    yeah the convenience module is the same part as the pump, not in passenger footwell, thats on passat, their a pain in the arse, mine has gone twice, theres a few common problems with them, yours doesnt sound like the impeller, more like a problem on the circuit board to me. if you replace the whole box be careful to match the part number EXACTLY, and you will still need to get it reprogrammed 99 times out of 100

    Sounds like the convenience module to me (the PCB housed in the central locking pump)... when you disconnect it, the central locking stops working and so do the windows, don't expect your car to be alarmed either!

    No m8 you have to replace that pump. Check the part number and then I can tell what other pump you can fit on.

    Well no, you can have windows without the pump, you just need to know what your doing.

    The pump sends a 12v signal down a particular wire to tell the window regulators they are allowed to operate. Simply splice this wire to 12v and the windows work fine. I know this because i've ditched the central locking system in my track car, and wanted the drivers window to still operate, so i figured out the wires and made it work.

    Its a bit pointless for a normal road car though, just replace the central locking pump.

    You could probably stick a temporary jumper wire in while you sort out another pump though. You want to put an ignition live onto pin A11 (red/black) at the locking pump, the live can be sourced from pin A8 (Black/Blue). Pump unplugged ofcourse.
