    All

    This morning I dropped my driver side window and it made a grinding, i pressed the window up button and the window came up about 6 inches then dropped again, I had to pull up the glass by hand.

    Has anyone any ideas what has happened to the mech inside the door skin and what needs to be done to fix it?

    Thanks in advance

    Diagnosis is a a faulty window mechanism. It would seem to be pretty common as thats the part they'd already ordered for me after I rang them last night.

    Cost to fix - £306 inc VAT

    Although I did negotiate a 15% discount with Audi for parts and labour so nearer £250.

    (its only money, easy come, easy go.....)

    Thanks Ian, but a little too late for me. Car was fixed today at Audi. Hopefully the comprehensive link you posted will be of use to someone else though :)

    (being honest, with a 2 month old baby and a 3 year old in the house, the chances of me getting time this side of May to sort it would be slim, so its probably for the best I got it done, especially as it was stuck half way open!)
