    Hi guys

    I have tried to search but all I've come accros is how to repair the window regulators. My windows are working correctly so I do t think its that

    The last couple of months I've had a permanent rattle from the passengers side window on my a4 cab

    The rattle disappears once the window is put down. So today I looked at the the gap between the two windows and doors and it seams that the top of the window is sitting as it should but the bottom seems to be overlapping.

    This is the join Inbetween the front and rear windows.

    Here's a picture sorry for the blurry pictures but hopfuly you can see what I'm on about

    I have read that there's some adjustment that you can do to the windows using a special tool from Audi

    Just wandering if anyone has experience of adjusting the windows to try and pull the bottom part of the window towards the front of the car

    The car is booked into the garage to have a service so should I just get them to do it ?

    Any help or guides would be most helpful

    I'm sure any paper will be fine.. crepe paper is just thin.

    You can probably go without the paper and just use the allen key to adjust by sight.

    Well I had a quick look last night and I couldn't see any Alan key holes in the bottom of the door All there is, is what looks like a 10mm nut jolding the window guides in.

    I think it might be a strip down job to get access to the window adjustment

    Have to look at it further over the weekend
