Sensor for Drivers Side Window
I had to replace the motor/sensor unit in my 1999 HD Rialta. I had it done at Volkswagen because I want everything factory correct. Not fond of spending big money but peace of mind is worth it to me. My repair came to $1200 which is standard for the Driver's window. In my case, the motor went out too. I would recommend having it fixed correctly or the express up and down won't work properly or will fail in short order. The price at $700 is good if they can do it right. Have you called Volkswagen and asked for a ballpark figure of this repair? Not sure if you have a VW dealer nearby but just a thought. Please let us know what you come up with. You mentioned purchasing the sensor alone. Putting the thing in may be another story and complicated unless you know how. My window started doing this halfway up and down thing days before the motor went out.
