    Hi all ,

    i took my car to my friends at vw ,

    he got the window back up. The window guides where fine and not broken just a small white clip had come off on the right bottom of the window .That needs replacing .And he took the motor off and tested it was working but when you pressed up it would go down and down would go down it wont go up ? Why is this has it just learned to just go down now ??

    Any help please ???

    Could it be faulty motor or had it just learned to go down and not up ?

    dont want to replace switch as it was working fine before the window got stuck ?

    Because it has a safety feature, if the clips broken it'll sense there's an obstruction (thinking it's a childs neck) and go back down. If the motor works downwards then it'll work going up as well, you just need to replace the clip and put it back together again.
    There's a million threads on this all too common problem if you do a search.
