Does your VR6 have a sunroof, think I can see on your pics. And in fact do all Mk3 VR6's have sunroof as standard?
Reasons I say is cos my VR6 electric windows are out, but I'm putting it down to water leakage from the known damaged sunroof. Additionally I have the Special Edn Mk3 Golf, and the windows stopped working long before I discovered sunroof leakage. It may be wise to eliminate that first.
I intend now the weather is turning, to take down the headliner, fix the sunroof, and repair the electrics.
Wonder if anyone else has experienced this?
