Question about 1996 Audi A4
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.
