Hi. So half an hour ago my rear regulator on my 2015 s3 saloon decided to snap, while the window was down. It is completely jammed shut.
I’ve removed the door cards and I’m currently trying to figure out how to remover the regulator from the glass. It looks like 2 plastic tubes running through the glass. One at the red arrow, and an even trickier one just out of sight.
Any advice on how to proceed?

the two plastic tubes/pins stay with the glass, they are just clipped into the white piece you are pointing at with your arrow
you should be able to pry open the clip and pull it off, similar to an electrical connector just bigger, use a plastic tool/your hands so you dont damage the glass
