The dealer may not, but i have. I have a 2005 TT roadster and everytime its even the slightest bit damp outside i cant get the drivers side window to "auto up", it stops about half way and rolls back down. After a visit to the dealer to fix that issue(and it was corrected after 2 trips), i noticed that while driving, if i hit a bump or a pothole, the passenger window "autos down" by itself. Getting aggrivated with the dealer telling me i was crazy, i traced the power window module wires. Come to find out that the drivers side external key cylinder leads had become crimped by the window regulator in the drivers door, causing the window down relays to trigger. Thus, the doors remained locked, but the windows roll down at, what appeared to be, random. You may want to check the drivers door harnesses and the internal door wiring, sounds very similar to the problem i was having. Hope this helps.

Wow! Thanks very much. I'll talk to the dealer. (The Internet is the greatest thing!)

I live in Iowa and am having the same problem this summer. On really hot days, the windows just go down. I actually sat and watched it happen one day. I shut off the engine and locked the doors and in about 5 minutes, the locks started to click and then the windows just went down. It will also happen if you do not lock the doors. I have a 2001 TT with 54,000 miles purchased in October 2005.
Did you ever find a solution to the problem.

Hey, my family lives in Des Moines. (I live in Palm Desert now.) I'm just living with it. I'll take it to the dealership when I have more $$$. Steve

I, too, have the windows that decide when they want to go down. I wont beat a dead horse but the 5 second reset doesn't seem to ok for me. Its totally random when he windows go up and seal. Hopefully someone has seen their problem rectified. Please share.

there is a little switch in the door latch that tells computer door position. you will have to buy a new latch unless you are very mechanically inclined. its not hard to get to at all after the the latch is out of the door. ( i bought a switch from radio shack and super glued it in place.) its still working after about 100 miles but im not holding my breath. if it fails again i will make a metal bracket.

the rear window comes unglued from the convertible top and cannot really be repaired properly. Replacement cost? $3100 for a new top. It just happened to me (see my pic album)
