    DIY: B5 S4 - One Touch Up Rear Window
    Has any one done this or has any thoughts on it?

    I know there will be the health and safety nuts among you wanting to jump up and say thing like its for safety reason or people can get their hands stuck and what not.
    Sod that. if their stupid enough get their hands stuck in a moving window its their own fault.
    But it does raise another question.

    If you do this mod, does the window not stop when it his resistance like the front windows?

    What is Pin5?
    why is not used?
    Are the motors the same in the B6 and is pin5 used on them?

    One of the first mods i did although You can use front passenger door looms on the rear doors which is better way of doing it
    Yes they stop and retract if they hit resistance ( I tested with an empty cigarette box and it wouldn't crush it , wasn't brave enough to try my fingers)

    One touch up for the rear windows.
    So they operate like the fronts.

    Yup. Replace the missing pin and solder to the correct cable.
