Default Window regulator on 2000 NB

I have 2000 new beetle and it seems that the driver side window regulator is strating to go bad. It starts to go up, gets half way and goes back down again. It will eventually go all the way but very slowly. And sometimes needs a little assistance. Does this sound like a regulator problem? And if so, how difficult is it to replace? I have basic working knowledge of cars in general, but am very handy and not afraid to get my hands dirty. Just never done anything like this.

Yes, regulator problems are common on the New Beetle. I have had my door apart, but not replaced a regulator yet. It is not hard to do. Here is a great video I found on how to do it:

The most cost effective and quality solution; is the repair kits direct from VW. These kits replace the parts that fail and that way; you do not have to spend the money, to replace the whole assembly.

I bought an aftermarket replacement that had the entire assembly already attached to a new inner panel, so I didn't have to drill out any rivets. I think it cost around $50 or so on ebay. No problems 1.5 years later.

Maybe tell us the brand you purchased; so, others can learn from your experience.
I have seen that Valeo is now selling window regulators; Valeo maybe a quality option to consider, if one wants to replace, the whole assembly.

Billy, I looked up my past purchases and this is the window regulator I got. It's only $38 now, I think I paid a little more for it back in 2015. Here's the link - Power Window Regulator w Panel Front Right Passenger Side Fits Beetle 1C0837656A | eBay

On our '05 NBC, I've had to replace both of the front window regulator cables. We got the car used, so I'm not sure if the ones I replaced were original or not.

I used the VW repair kit both times. They're a bit pricey, and CAN NOT be returned to the dealer I bought them from, but if you're comfortable working on cars, they're a known good solution. There are "how to" instructions and videos on the Internet that show you how to do this. It's not terribly difficult, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone who's not worked much on cars in the past.
