There is a fitting guide on vwvortex.com or if your car is less than 6 years old your dealer will do it under warranty.

I have a drivers side kit that wasnt needed as my clips were just loose (for a 5 door) if anyone is interested.

and the guide on vortex is very good.

Had both my fronts done in the last two months FOC. As Dsgwagen states, its free if the car is less than 6 years old.

Hi Peeps,

Soz to hi-jack post but in the past 12 months I've had both mine done - 1 by a main stealer and the other by a local garage. My car is 5 years old and done 72,000 miles.

If I contact VW direct am I likely to have the payments refunded? Maybe at least for the payment to the main stealer?

Mine have gone too,does anyone know how easy they are to fit? i'm guessing they would be quite difficult?
They're not that bad really. It is a two man job i'd say to get the window in while it's manouvered into position into the clips. Just a bit fiddly to get the new clips onto the wire etc.

Thats what the guy said on the phone, but what does that consist of?
With the repair kit I got all the wires and clips = the cog piece for
the motor.

Mine broke just after I left home for Edition 38 the other week had to turn back as the glass had fallen into the door, I bought the repair kit in the week and have now installed it all on the internal door panel but just haven't got around to puting it all back together, currently the glass in my door is being held up with bits of wood, but I'm not using the car at the mo so I'm not bothered.

How difficult is it to get it all back together on your own?

I'm also intrigued by this[*-)] as my passenger side window is very slow.

Do VW replace the clips both sides? And does your car have to have a VW warranty for this work to be done?

If i can get this work done for free then Whey-hehh!! as i am dredding the day when my window drops out.[:p]

GOOF

If you find out you can get them done free....i would swing off your working window just to get that one up to date too. Got to take advantage [;)]

Im going to check my clips out and sob.
