Question about 2000 Audi TT

1 Answer

Window mechanism not working, but motor Ok

In my Audi TT coupe 2000 one of the windows stopped with a bang (the sound of the glass hitting something) while trying to raise it.
I then lowered it fully, and now it won't go up at all, though I can hear the motor whirring gently. I think the glass it is off it's rails.

Any ideas how this might have happened and how to fix it?
Are there any possible airbag issues with removing the door trim?

The window regulator has plastic gears inside and these may be stripped. The best solution is to have the window regulator replaced.

Fix power window 2000 honda accord

new window regulator probably. theres an electric motor that has a gear that rides along a curved piece of metal with teeth on it, thats how it raises/lowers the window and the teeth at the end are probably worn. I believe only the coupes use the gear driven setup and the sedans use cables, but I am not 100% sure of that fact, but I do know for sure that the coupes use the gear driven setup.

I have problems rolling up my driver's side window in My Audi TT 2001 Convertible. It stopped working for months, then suddenly did work today for a while. Unfortunately, window is half way up, but...

well it one of three things the window motor, the window regulator, or you intermindently have no power to that window, start by checking for power at the window switch and then if you have power there the check for pwer at the motor which will require you to remove the door pannel, and you test for power with a multimeter or test light you can get at any auto store. so if there is power, and you dont hear a binding, grinding noise the motor is bad but its a whole lot easier to replace the window motor and regulator at the same time

My driver side window stopped working. I had the window resetter ( or something like that) fixed cause my window fell in the door. After that it sounded like something was dragging against the glass when...

sounds like the power window motor has failed. You can get this part with or without the window regulator. It's like $20 cheaper to get the motor without the regulator but way more complicated to replace. If you heard a rubbing sound after the first time something could have been left untightened. If it hasn't been too long maybe they will warranty it for you, but the part at your local store was less than $100 when I did one a coupkle of months ago.

Heard loud bang and now the front driver side door window does not roll up. I can hear the motor working, but the window still does not roll up. One week later the exact same thing happened to the front...

Possible that the mechanism has jumped off the linkage . You will need to remove the flap and get access to the window winding mechanism. You will be able to notice the main motor mechanism which has either jumped off - as you heard the sound- or there is a gear that has come off the motor drive.
A resetting of the winder to keep the motor drive coupled to the window winding mechanism should solve. Also make sure that the glass channels are clear and free , not giving friction to the mechanism to jump off.
