Look in the Engine bay fuse box at Fuse #12 this should be for the power windows. If this checks out OK, it could be a fault with a bad ground wire in driver's side door harness. You should be able to pry the runbber boot from the drivers door, and check the larger Black wire that goes through it. These have been known to break after a few years use. If it is the cable, cut neatly, strip the ends anu use a crimp splice. Hope this is a quick and easy fix for you. If it helps you solve the problem, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

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 http://forums.audiworld.com/a6/msgs/307886.phtml for the help.
Also: http://www.audiworld.com/tech/int45.shtml (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.

Folks, Just found my problem ...... There's a flexible conduit (corrugated rubber sleeve) between the driver's door and the door arch which contains the wiring loom for the drivers door central locking/door speaker/electric windows/mirrors etc....discovered when I slipped off the sleeve that 4 cables in the wiring loom had broken due to repeated flexing when drivers door was opened/closed over the years (2001 Audi A4). Resoldered broken wires and insulated same....now working better than ever again ...ie dashboard back lighting seems brighter than it had been for some time? Also drivers door loudspeaker is back in action again (hadn't noticed that it had gone).
It's kinda difficult to reseat the rubber sleeving correctly after the repair job...will probably use some silicone sealant on the sleeve to ensure that there is no water ingress to wiring loom afterwards. I'm not too impressed with Audi design people after that, should have used cable that has a better flexibility rating (esp on drivers door!).

Hi i have an audi a4 and the drivers window fails to open and close properly and there is a strange clicking when doing so. It sounds like there is a stone inside the window but i think it may be a mechanical fault with the electic window ........help
