Read and follow the introductory information and safety information firstIntroduction to the subject 

One-touch opening and closing

The one-touch feature automatically opens/closes a power window all the way. The window switch does not have to be held down/up.

For one-touch closing: Pull the switch for the window up briefly as far as it goes.

For one-touch opening: Press the switch for the window down briefly as far as it goes.

Stopping automatic movement: Pull/press the switch again.

Reactivating the one-touch feature

If the vehicle battery is disconnected or dead and the windows are not completely closed, the one-touch feature will not work and must be reactivated:

  • Close all windows and doors.
  • Pull up the switch for the respective window and hold it for at least one second in this position.
  • Release the switch, pull up and hold again. The one-touch feature is now reactivated.

The one-touch feature can be reactivated for one or more windows at the same time.

Convenience closing

The convenience closing feature lets you close the windows and the power sunroof as follows:

  • From inside the vehicle, pull up and hold the switch for the driver window until all windows and the sunroof are closed ⇒ Power locking and closing system .

From outside the vehicle (vehicles with Keyless Access), hold your finger on the lock sensor surface on the outside of the door handle for a few seconds until the windows close ⇒ Unlocking and locking the vehicle from the outside .

Convenience closing first closes the windows and then the power sunroof.


Improper use of power windows can result in serious personal injury.
  • Never let anyone get in the way of a power window when closing it.
  • When locking the vehicle from the outside, make sure that no one, especially children, remains in the vehicle. The windows will not open in case of an emergency.
  • Always take the key with you when you leave the vehicle. You can still use the power windows for several minutes after the ignition is switched off as long as the driver or front passenger door has not been opened.
  • Always use the safety switch when children are in the back seat to disable the rear power windows and keep them from being opened and closed.

If the power windows malfunction, the one-touch feature, as well as pinch protection, will not work properly. See an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility right away.
