2003 VW Beetle. The drivers side power window is stuck down and will only go up about a inch. Motor works both up and down along with the switch test out ok. Tried to manualy move the window up with no luck. Cant take the rest of the door apart to get to the regulator without getting the window up and off first. Any ideas on how to get the window up? Thank you!

Unbolt the power window motor from the panel, that should give the cables slack so that you can pull the window up.

If not, roughly gauge where the window mounting clamps would be and drill a couple of holes through the bottom of the panel. Loosen
the window clamp bolts and raise the window.

Did you unbolt the motor. Held on by torx screws.
