    Hey guys,

    I know this has been covered many times but can't quite find the info I need.

    My window has the common problem of not returning to the top properly sometimes it does but it still doesnt seal to the top so not great when driving so I just don't use it.

    I'm getting a garage to look into it but I reckon while its in pieces I will ask him to replace the clips for the glass does anyone have pics/part numbers for the replacement ones with metal reinforcement (off audi A6 i think).

    (The remote window on the key helped me out this morning though, the doors were stuck solid even after a lot of warm water around edges and on handle the catch mech was not budging so held the button down the windows came down then I jsut used the inside handle and that worked the catch fine! Phew thought I would be there for hours, well theres a winter tip for you just make sure your windows are defrosted!). Damn those mornings!

    Any help on the window clips would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Can you get the parts directly from Audi or TPS?

    yeah the guy thinks its either the motor or regulator, will have to see but I think clips could do with being replaced anyway.

    if the motor is pushing up then that will be fine and its most likely the regulator. u can get clips and regulator etc from audi and tps. Not sure about gsf or eurocarparts etc. mostly i guess

    Any audi clip would work from 1997-2003 they all use the same clip, if there is movement in one direction then its likley to be only one clips broken.
    this is the guid I used, the only thing it doesn't cover is if you completly remove the regulator, then you need to drill the riverts out and insert bolts/nuts and warsher in its place YouTube - Audi A6 Power Window Repair

    Yeah deffo the clips, done two a3s now. There is no special metal version, but there is a subtle redesign between old and new. So hopefully shouldn't happen again.
