    Not sure if the A4 ever had a manual option. There is an emergency manual wind feature with an allen key type thing. All I know is that it was possible with the earlier B3 and B4 cars to from manual to electric but why would you want to convert backwards anyway?

    Can you test if you have power to the switch? if so does the power get to the motor? may just be a faulty switch, or the motor.
