    Hi - this is seemingly a common issue as I have seen many similar reports online (not just on Audi's), though no solution.

    I have replaced a window regulator and the new one works 'backwards' i.e. I press down and the window goes up; i pull up and the window goes down.

    There is no way that the wiring polarity is incorrect - the plug has only one fit. I wondered if the issue could be that I have fitted a drivers door regulator onto my passenger side, though the supplier is adamant that he has supplied the correct part (and that he only ever had the passenger side part).

    I assume that there is a way to change the wires around, though it's not as straight forward as you'd imagine (8 wire options).

    So, here i am reaching out to the smart guys on here. Any ideas??

    Sounds to me like it's the wrong side

    If the part number is identical, then its not wrong, is this an integrated door module/motor, if so, check coding as this causes the same issues.

    Sorted. There's a bolt on component on the regulator that is attached with 4 screws. Essentially it contains the electric motor with magnets etc. I removed this and rotated it 180 degrees and hey presto, fixed.
