Greetings from Seattle,

Well, the LF window regulator-raises and lowers the window- is ffailing 
again.   Makes the stripping sound.  I had the dealer repair it ~18m 
ago.  They tell me that there is no recall-service bulletin on the 97.  
The 2000+ are covered under recall.

Does anyone know if there is any coverage by VW for this?  It is 
apparently a chronic problem.
