SOURCE: electric window

STOP! Don't spend hundreds of $$ or ££ on an entire new regulator mechanism. It's probably not necessary.

There's a weak part in the design. It's the bit which links the steel cable to the window. They are plastic and they tend to break, leaving one side of the window unsupported (or at least un-driven).

Audi have redesigned the part, making it stronger (now with a metal reinforcement). In the UK, the cost of the part is about £1.60 ($2.60). You can even replace the part WITHOUT removing the regulator mechanism. The part number is 4B0-837-463-B. (Don't miss the -B).

I thank the good people at for the help.

Also: (This describes another method, which involves taking the mechanism off).

My own tip: If you're doing it without removing the works, get the new part and run the screw into the fixing hole to form a thread BEFORE you try to do it on the car.

Disclaimer: This worked on my '99 A6. No responsibilty if you should break your window, trap your fingers, drop a screwdriver on your toes etc.

This is a common problem with the C5 A6 models. Before you replace the fuse for the windows (I think it's number 14, but i don't have a manual in front of me - Anyway, it's the 10A fuse that's blown!) Look under the back of both front seats and you'll see a light that illuminates the floor for the back seats. Rem ove the light from each seat by prying it out with a flat screwdriver and disconnect both leads. Replace the fuse, and your windows (moon roof and interior lights as well) should now work. The lumbar support causes something to short out the lights. I've tried insulating the lights on mine, but the problem always comes back so I just disconnected them altogether.

SOURCE: Removing the door panel to a 1996 Audi A6 Quattro

This info is wrong, remove the screws at the top of the panel along the edge ( one on the hinge edge and one on the latch edge. Remove the cover from the interior door handle by locating the hole on the bottom edge of the handle, insert a punch to release the cover, once the cover is released remove the 2 screws holding the handle on. Remove the handle.Once the handle is removed take the black trim piece that the handle seats into off. Pull the interior latch handle forward enough the remove the cable. Remove the latch handle. There is a small hole in the vynal under the latch handle, the last remaining screw that holds the panel on is inside this hole, remove it. The hole is hard to see, this took me several hours to find not knowing it was there. Remove the window switch module by sliding a screwdriver under the edge that faces the latch end of the door, push in the metal clip and pry up on the switch assembly. there are 2 plastic tabs that hook into the arm rest on the hinge end, that is why you must pry up from the latch end. Disconnect the plugs from the switch. Now you are ready to remove the panel. grasp the panel through the hole for the latch handle and pull up about 1" the panel should com free from the door. Do not pry the panel out from the door or you will break the plastic tabs that hold the panel on. Once you lift the panel up and off the door you will need to disconnect 2 electrical connectors and remove the white foam plug that seals the window switch harness into the arm rest and remove the window control wires from the panel.

Sometimes the rubber seal on the window is so tight that it grabs the window. Usually it doesn't matter how tight the seal is if the motor is good and strong. Sounds like your window motor is getting weak and will eventually have to be replaced.

Electric Window move slowly

Your window clips that hold the window in have broken.  You will need to replace these clips in order to fix it right.  The clips you can buy at any audi dealer.  Ask for the most updated ones.  There have been many updated clips.  Audi has been trying to develop better ones for years but they still keep breaking.  Its a very common issue.  Your window will still go up and down but since the clips broke you will have it bind in the track. To get you by for the time been.  Lubricate the window track with some silicon spray.  This will help keep it from binding up until you can do the repair.

It's probably the regulator. I don't know whether the A6 uses the same part as the A4, but if so, I have a spare regulator in my garage that is available. I'll see if I can find out whether they use the same part number or not and will let you know (if I can find information online, I'll post the links so that you can see they're the same or different).
