The cable on my drivers side window has broke, so the window wont wind up or down.

Does anybody know how easy it is to replace the cable, and whether a cable off an A6 will fit as I know someone who is stripping down an A6

Thanks in advance for your help.
Your better just buying the whole window regulator..done mine a few months ago..If your handy with the tools will take about 2 hours..think there's a how to on this site somewhere.
I've gone through 3 in the last year and a bit (i think the window frame is buckled). If you;re handy enough with tools, then it's a peice of cake, takes me about half an hour now. You just need a few different size torx bits.

You can get 3rd party replacements off ebay for around £20 or a replacement from audi is about £130.
