Woke up with his morning and my car window drivers side is not functioning properly. So the door won't close. Any ideas what to do. I've tried outing the window down but that won't work the window won't go down
Common issue with frame-less doors, seems that eager pulling of door and not allowing the glass to preform its initial drop can cause this, as you're essentially pulling the glass out of alignment overtime. Remember the glass will only be sitting on glass clamps attached the Window Reg rails. I'd leave it to Audi to fix, but always allow the glass to perform its drop, even though the A5/S5 have handles that should allow time for this, we can always beat the glass drop.
I don't think it's that common, and Audi have had the frameless doors for years. It's only the recent A5 release that it has become an issue on new models (I've seen some older A4 convertibles malfunction, but that's after a few years usage)
I have **tried** to "beat" the window drop on my S7 - impossible, it's so dam fast... and I've never had a malfunction
Also I had the thought that the orientation of how you open the A5 door could be to allow the glass drop, as you pull the handle it comes upwards rather than outboard towards the yourself. Is this the same for the A7?
God help us when the weather starts to freeze and with windows stick to the rubber
Now I never thought of that.... this is going to be a real issue.
Not got mine yet, but how do you do a reset? Always handy to know before the event!Use the keys to fully lower the windows and then do a reset
Yours will be MY18 like mine so software fix should be work for your car.
Only ‘valid’ reason for window not dropping is if ice has formed on lower seal preventing it from moving. What a terrible design. Thus is my first frameless window and they are really more trouble than they’re worth unless cab of course. When it’s freezing and you are stuck with open doors it’s no joke.
If no ice on windows then it should move. Rain or water is not an issue. The software update should work but I have still had 3 failures in 3 months, so it does completely fix issue. That’s substantially down on previous 30 per month though!
I've contacted Audi and they advised me to reset the windows. My windows was not dropping.
Hold the windows button up for 3 secs wknd the window down and hold button for 3 secs and the window resets. I got full functionality back window is now dropping and working as should be..... so far
