Tumbler in the door means the bar the key slides on into the key slot. As for the windows and doors thing i'm guessing you have a soft top no? well at any rate this is a common occurrence with vw's just check out this web page and it should solve all your issues. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=340875
