AUDI A4 window problem

I have a 96 audi a4. About a month ago i noticed that the window on the front passenger side was having a hard time going up. going down is no problem at all but there is a lot of resistance when trying to go up. I thought it was the regulator motor in the window so I replaced it and the problem is still there. Could it be the gears in the door needing to be lubed? I have no idea how to lube them any ideas? could the gears need to be replaced? Where can i purchase new gears outside of the Stealership? Thanks for all the help.

I would check a junk yard for the actual window regulator, this is a tough piece to replace, but it would be worth it if that is the problem. While you are at that part of the project, you can lube up the window glides with some wesson oil(cooking oil), it'll be a little messy the first few times, but after a while there will be no greasy mess on the edges of the windows and it will glide with no problem.

It's behind a channeling plate on the front passenger side of the block, behind the timing belt. You're pretty much looking at a teardown of the front of the engine to replace it.

I have a 96 audi a4 and i cant find the low pressure valve to charge my a/c

The larger line or low pressure line to the back of the compressor. Just to the side you will find the low presser connector should look like the pic. Now the high side connector is at the front of the car on the right hand side (passenger) at or near the condensor that sits infront of the radiator. For the low side connector look at the pic below of the compressor for you car. If you look at the back you will see a cap on a fitting there on the side that is were the connection is for the low side.

Stuborn Windows 2002 Audi A6

your window regulator is going bad, you will need to replace it. I have the A4 and I have replaced both front window regulators myself. If you plan on doing it yourself you will need to get a drill as Audi uses Rivets to hold the regulator in place. you can then replace the rivets with nuts and bolts.

Repair shop can't find A/C pressure connections Audi 96 A4

The 1996 Audi A4 only has a High side refrigerant port. Right where you found it. Right side of radiator.
(Not to insult your intelligence. The passenger side of the car is the right side)

Look for the refrigerant lines going to the exchanger.
With this single port, you must evacuate the entire system, and replace the refrigerant with the proper amount.
(Obviously you can't refrigerant from cans, to the high side)

Your competent auto shop will have an evacuator, and charts to show the proper amount of refrigerant.
