    Odd S3-8L Window Regulator Clips

    Hi

    I have an 8L S3 I found one of the clips holding my passenger side window to the regulator has broken. Below is a picture of the offending item, it's supposed to have two barbs on it but they're broken off.

    Everything I've looked at suggests my car should use the standard regulator clips but it doesn't.

    Can you get this part?

    If you look at the photos in this advert it shows the same regulator/mechnism that I have on my S3.

    Hi

    Nope. I replaced those on my old Audi A3 so I know these are not the same.

    Have a look at this picture (from the ebay ad I linked above).

    This is identical to the regulator setup I have in my door.

    Notice on the picture the runners are grey and not like the pink ones you linked.

    The white clip I picture above acts a bit like a circlip to hold the glass in place.

    Really? How do you know which regulator? as the slides on mine are different to pink clips?

    I've just whipped off my door card and taken these photos in case they help?
