it happened to my cousin A4 and we opened the door panel and the plastic window roller and cable snapped so we lifted the window up by hand and zip tied the rail so it stays on the up position ............
hardest part was putting the dam door panel back on .....

I currently have this problem too, front drivers window fell in the door. At first I used the duct tape method - http://www.passatworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=224424 but it didn't hold well and it looked BAD. On the advice of bass_lover1 I used some styrofoam jammed in between the inner door panel and the window to hold the window up and it looks much cleaner and seems to be working well.

I have a regulator on order, I should have it the middle of next week. I'm wondering why folks seem to go through the trouble of drilling out the rivets on the speaker and motor and then moving them to the new part as opposed to just moving the clips to the old part. Is the new part different than the original?

Also, I'm really bummed to find out that for the Jetta they have made the clips available separately and changed them from plastic to metal. Why not the Passat? :(
