    Tried to open my driver side window the other day only to find it wouldn't budge. I took the door card off to find a snapped lifter cable.
    I'd like to know if I can just replace the cable with a new one, which I can't seem to find any where, or do I need to buy the whole lifting unit?
    I found the Window Regulators for the 2 door version (http://www.car-partsonline.com/Results.asp?Basic=178&command=), will this still work with my 4 door as it's for the OSF door and I guess I need the one without a motor. Does this sound about right??

    If it specifies that is is for a 2 door car then you can be 99% sure that it will not do a 4dr car. You need the window regulator you cant buy the cable seperate. the regulator doesnt come with the motor. There are a few pattern products avaliable but i normally get them from the main dealer as the pattern ones arent always that good and sometimes need messing about with to get them to fit. Would guess that it would be 50-70 quid from Audi.
