    I had my drivers side window down yesterday & when attempting to put it back up it seemed to be jammed. The glass is un-stable when down, eventually managed to get the winodw up with help but dont fancy putting it back down incase it stays there ? i recall this happening to people on here before, so whats the cure ?

    I gave my car to the mechanics to replace the clips that are notorious for this problem, but he ended up just greasing the side pillars on the door frame and started working ok, been working fine for about 4 months so far.....

    Yeh I know, I looked at the "how to" guide and thought exactly the same, so gave it to my mechanic, and he said "oh no, not this" lol!

    From ebay? I got mine from Audi for half the price they were on ebay. About £1.80 each.

    not to mentation the time/cost it would take to pop down order (possibly return & collect), its not worth the time

    But anyway do you need to remove the frame to get to the clips ?
