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 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.
Ed.

There's a TSB on that problem. It involves broken wires in the A and B pillar from the central convenience module to the rest of the car. Ask your VW dealership or what not for a more specific answer.

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.

Rear electric window not working and the window is partially down. Is there a manual way to close the window?


did you check the fuses 1 st the window switch may be at fault but you should ck the fuses first or a test light to ensure power to the switch and to the motor often the wires going between the door jamb break just from the bending from opening and closing the door you should be able to jump { hot wire the motor to the window if you are confident in doing so very common issue but check the fuses first

My electric windows quit while driving down the road I checked all the fuses their ok what else could it be. Sometimes you can here small click when you press the button


Try working the switch while slowly opening the drivers door if there is a momentary movement in the window then peel back the rubber boot between the door and cabin to look for a broken wire.

Relay, the car has relays, for each window motor, also pull the door panel of the window that is not working and with a test light, turn the car key on, do not start the car, press the window switch and if the light goes on on the positive wire, wile you are pressing Your motor is bad usually the driver is the first one to go, also, with the panel of and the key on, press the switch and locate the window motor round cylinder part and tap it with a hammer, not so hard no so soft, if that is happening means the motor brushes are gone and You will need a new one

Windows and Headlights


Two unrelated problems. For the headlights, do you have high beams if you pull back on the turn signal stalk? If so, and if your fuses are OK, your combination switch has failed (that's the stalk switch for your headlights). You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel to replace it. The combi switch is a common failure on these cars.

For the windows, double-check the fuses. Can you open the rear windows using their own buttons? How about using the driver's door buttons to open the rear windows? Let me know what you can or can't do in this regard and we'll take the window problem further.
