    Audi s3 8l sent the window down and then all of a sudden as i tried to close it the window went all the way down and won't close, ive got the door card off and with the ignition on and not pressing the button at all the motor os clicking and the metal bit is so hot i can't touch it, clips look ok on window, now and then the window button will work and it goes up a cm then straight back down again, is there a way to get my window closed at all?

    Sounds like the regulator, just done both sides on mine, fairly easy to do yourself with the right bits

    Im in sunderland, ive managed to get it closed, i removed the motor and pushed the window up and replaced the motor, its still not working though, not sure if its the clips or motor, although i tried the motor when i removed it and it seems to be working fine and the clips look ok? It must know im thinking of selling as the arm rest has stopped working aswell lol

    That's not too bad, a genuine regulator is £103 to buy and about an hours labour so sounds about right.

    Yeah I'm happy with the price and piece of mind its done properly, spent a few quid over the last two years of ownership keeping it right which im happy to do as the plan was it was a keeper but i stupidly test drove a b8 a4 3.0 tdi quattro avant and now i want one of those, and as a cross country and trail runner it would suit me more, just hope nowt else crops up before i decide to put it up for sale or not lol
