My brake lights dont work, i have checked the fuse and bulbs but all is ok, my car is an audi a3 1.6 99 model

Check the brake light switch (aka the stop light switch). I'm not familiar w/ Audi, but most cars have the switch located on the upper portion of the brake pedal, with an electric plug in connection. I couldn't find a listing for info on the a3, only the a4 and 6 for that year . That switch is approx. $40. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My passenger electric window in my car doesnt work anymore if it goes all the way down its almost impossible to get it up again! how much would it cost to get a new motor? my car is 1999 audi a3 but...

The window regulator clips are a very common failure. I bought some on ebay which were an improved version compared to the original supplied with the car. I think they are regularly available on ebay!
