Yesterday my passenger front window dropped to the bottom of the door. I was able to fix it by reading the DIY info. for my 2001 jetta. The clips were just loose and the glass pulled off when the misses tried to lower the window. While I was in the door doing the repair I did not notice any drain holes in the bottom of the door like I'm used to seeing in my other vehicles. Are there suppose to be drain holes and if so where?

Thanks for all the great information. I have been reading this forums for hours ever since I bought this jetta last week. When the window fell I already knew what had happened and had a pretty good idea on how to fix it.

There must be some drains because water will drip down the window. But I've never looked or checked so I'm not sure.

No parts repair was needed? How did you secure the clips? Glue?

Nothing was broken, just the bolts were not tight. I did not use any glue just tighten up the clip bolt.
I hope that will hold the glass in place. There was a plastic piece on the end of the clips and I assume that this grips the glass when the bolt is tightened. I hope it does the trick. I lowered and raised the window numerous times and it works good. I think I will lube the window guides with some silicon spray to keep the glass from sticking in the track. Do you think I should have glued it? What kind of glue should I use?

I think some of the vag cars have a little drain hole towards the rear corner of the door but I'm not 100% You might be able to see some water marks where the water drains though on the under side.
