Volkswagen is famous for its top-notch performance and reliable German engineering. Comfort, one of the most important aspects of a smooth driving experience, is provided subtly by this brand, along with its sleek design. While enjoying a ride in your Volkswagen, you might roll down your windows to feel the breeze but the window regulator malfunctions.
Power windows fail to work when the window regulator has a problem. In this case, you should get it repaired by automotive experts. Regular maintenance is essential to ensure a long-term feel-good journey and preserve this performance and comfort level.
The Function of the Window Regulator
Window regulators provide the force needed to move a car window upward or lower from its current position. The electronic controls of a window regulator enable us to use the power window feature.
Wearing out of pulley cables
Pulley cables operate the windows on Volkswagen cars. These cables are attached to the window and move along with the motor, applying the appropriate force to the window. These cables might wear out or separate from the window altogether over time. The wearing out of the cables results in the window’s malfunction. In this case, the pulley cables should be replaced for smoother rolling of the window.
Window regulator failure caused by cold temperature
If the window regulator is exposed to cold temperatures for an extended period, it will freeze, and the window will become detached from the regulator. Likewise, if the regulator parts operate in freezing temperatures, they will be over-stressed. Therefore, freezing temperature can cause window regulator failure.
Window regulator failure caused by overheating
The complete window regulator system will fail if the motor in the window regulator overheats. Raising and lowering the window frequently can cause overheating, putting unnecessary stress on the system over time if done consistently. An overheating window power motor might also be caused by normal wear.
Moreover, the regulators might become weary over time and start to malfunction. It is best to always look for noticeable indications of a window regulator failure and get it repaired by Volkswagen technicians.
Symptoms of Window Regulator Failure in your Volkswagen
If the power windows are jammed or don’t move from their position, most certainly, this is a result of window regulator failure. When the window rolls, unusual sounds can be caused by worn-out pulley cable guards or a shredded window regulator cable. What we want to avoid most is having the window shatter and land inside the door. Listen for unusual sounds when a window is raised or lowered.
Other signs of problems are a window that opens slowly, gets jammed, or does not fully close. Bring your VW to us right away if the window moves up and down in a lopsided manner or if the window motor runs when the window switch is pressed but the window does not move.
