Ok I recleaned several times but no joy. In the end I took the car to main dealer who pulled out the left door flange female connector and found broken a broken wire and further corrosion behind the connector body itself. Car is now being sorted by them and work comes with 2 year warranty.

This should fix the problem. I won't post again unless there are further issues

Has this Windows problem been resolved? I have spent several months on and off trying to get the Windows moving up and down continuously. After changing the window Ecu the Windows so etimes start working normally, maybe for a few minutes or even a few hours. Then they pack up again. I have checked all the wires in the loom. I have cleaned and lubricated all connectors to door pillar and all items in door. Have changed the door module. Have swapped the CCM for another unit. What ether I do the fault recurs. The passenger window operates from its switch if I prime it with the passenger door lock, but then stops working too after driving a bit. When it works everything is normal. But only for a short time. I have tried the battery disconnection tricks to reset the CCM and Ecu, but makes no difference. I even have a second CCM, which makes no difference. Same intermittent working. Seems should be a connection problem, or perhaps the CCMs, both of them? Are misbehaving. Is there some reset trick I am missing? The vag readout provides no faults codes. Next idea is to try a replacement loom, but I have checked the existing one again and again. Each time I get it to work is by disconnecting and reconnecting the windo motor and its Ecu, but then it fails again....Very frustrating! Any suggestions, solutions?

Did you sort it mines is the same,tried most things like you,replaced the door lock module drivers a side,even though the fault is the pass side,as I'm told the window roll up,,and interior switch lock problems stem from it,I've had everything out of the drivers door,still can't fix it,have a spare motor and twin door switch,door module is in a milo bits so I'll bin that,any tip would be helpful,before I strip the pass door,,,,,,cheers,ev. everett996sps@aol.com

Just bought the above car for my daughter as a first vehicle and totally love it. I have just one niggle that I am working on, and that is the electric window on the passenger side.

I have trawled the forum and have seen lots of electric window issues, along with pointers on how to fix. Have tried just about all of it but am still not getting it resolved.

The issue is as follows:

1. There is a dual switch on the drivers side for operating the electric windows. The right side window works 100% of the time. This is all good
2. The dual switch on the drivers side does not operate the left window whatsoever. I have replaced the switch today with an aftermarket part thinking that maybe some water had got into the switch and corroded it. No difference. Still doesn't work. So now I have a spare switch :)
3. There is a single switch in the passenger door. When I first picked up the car this was also not working.

OK so many people suggest whipping off the rubber gaitor in the door hinge and checking for breaks/shorts/corrosion. I did this on the left door panel (The lowest connector is the one that operates the electric window, and this is the same on the right side of the door panel as well as far as I can ascertain) and I did notice some greeny blue residue around the top of the connector block. I cleaned this up with vinegar, dried off and applied some WD40. Guess what? The left window switch started to work!...but it was intermittent. If I took the connector off, wiggled it, and put it back in it would work for a short while, then stop again. I have done this a few times but it isn't lasting very long.

I have also whipped off the right hand side door frame gaitor and cleaned up the free end connectors, there wasn't much in the way of any corrosion in these connectors but I cleaned them anyway.

I am assuming that this is an electrical problem of some kind. I can get both windows to work but not consistently (and I have failed to get the drivers side switch to operate the passenger side) so am guessing that its nothing to do with regulators or motors etc.

I was wondering perhaps if there was some corrosion behind the fixed end connectors held within the doorframe on either the passenger or drivers side? I don't really want to strip down any door panels but I would love to sort this problem out.

Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

By the way I also buzzed out the top connectors on both door panels and noticed on both sides that the two wires were at zero ohms i.e. connected. Not sure if this is of relevance.

Many thanks.
Did you sort it i cant sort mine..2 motor.s 1 door module later..and 2 weeks same fault..07949101159..

Continually posting on this wont prompt a reply

I would look into changing the door wiring loom to the body before you do anything further.

Do some continuity testing with a multimeter on Ohms (resistance) and check there are no rogue values between the chassis plug and the window and door lock plugs
