    Chris, when you say its gone down, did it go down silently and using the electric motor or did it get stuck a little and grind etc. When trying to get it back up does it make any noises etc?

    I only ask because there is a common problem on both Audi's and VW's regarding the window regulator mechanism. its a common fail and pretty reasonable to fix. I am sure there is a how too on here but it does mean stripping the door and fitting a new mechanism.

    I just wanted to get clarification, it may be an electrical fault as you 1st thought.
