Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual: Power window pinch protection

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

Pinch protection can help reduce the risk of pinching injuries when closing a power window ⇒ . If one-touch window closing meets resistance or there is something in the way, the window will stop and go down again.

  • Check why the window did not close.
  • Try one-touch window closing again.
  • If the window meets resistance a second time, so that it stops and goes back down, one-touch closing is deactivated for about 10 seconds.
  • If you pull the power window button up all the way and hold it during this 10 second interval, the window will close without pinch protection .

Closing the window without pinch protection

  • Try to close the window again within 10 seconds by holding the switch. Pinch protection is turned off for a short distance in the window track!
  • If closing takes longer than about 10 seconds, pinch protection is turned on again. The window stops again if there is resistance.
  • If the window still will not close, please see an authorized Volkswagen dealer or an authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.


Without pinch protection, power windows will close with enough force to cause serious personal injury.
  • Always be careful when closing power windows.
  • Always make sure that no one is in the way when overriding pinch protection to close power windows!
  • Pinch protection cannot prevent fingers or other parts of the body from being pressed against the window frame; injuries may result.

Pinch protection is also active during convenience closing of the windows and the power sunroof ⇒ Convenience closing .
