    No - No change of heart but, at 77, I am getting a bit 'long in the tooth' to work on the car. I withdrew it from sale as there were no enquiries.

    Many thanks for this useful site, and I found the part number. Nothing out there at the moment, so it might be a trip to the breaker's yard.

    Never did thank you people for your replies on this, which is discourteous of me. Problem was as suggested, and solution was a quick trip to the breaker's yard for a replacement.

    My problem answered off-line and, in case anyone else has the same problem, try Stevens VW Spares. He produced a 36939 and, if he does not have one, it just may be the same as a Passat B5. Very...

    Let me add to this thread. A used regulator drive assembly for the Golf 3.5 is as 'rare as hen's teeth'. Does anyone have VW or OEM part numbers for the same items on a Golf 3 and/or a Golf 4?

    Its not a 10 minute job, but if you take the door trim off, and the moisture barrier as well, you can get at the two clamps on the regulator mechanism that hold the glass. Loosen and lift. Look at...

    It would seem that window regulators for the cabriolet model are either as rare as hen's teeth - or as expensive! The closest I have found is for the estate version. The picture looks the same, but...
