    Passanger Side back Window seems off track?

    The rear passanger window on my 1999 passat 1.8T does not work, when I bought it the previous owner said it fell off its track? Also the rear passager side speaker does not work so I figured kill to passat problems in 1 session. How do I take of the door panel and put the window back on track, and replace or reconnect speaker wires.

    There is a "how to" thread in the information base forum:

    DIY: The Permanent Rear Window Regulator Clip Fix (aka: the Cabinet Knob Trick)

    There is a link in that "how to" on door panel removal.

    Good procedure, but get the real pin. It's cheaper than a cabinet knob anyway.

    most often, the two-piece pin is lying in the bottom of the door.

    Even if you don't reuse it, it's a good idea to remove it so that it doesn't clog the door drain holes. This also applies to the bits of broken clips from broken front regulators.
