    can the electric motor be removed and switched to manual?

    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?
