Default Amazing disapearing window, 99.5 A4....

I had my drivers-side window play peek-a-boo with me last week. Dropped right down the track when trying to roll down or roll up the window.

Anyone know a good fix for this or suggest a good shop that will fix it for me?

Thanks, it's been a while since I've taken my car to a shop.

BTW I'm in Arlington, VA.

Default Pull the rear door trim and take a look...

Dunno if the B5 and C5 are comparable, but the glass rides on a single channel in the middle that is lifted/lowered via cables.
If you hear crunching, that's likely the cable fraying and you need to rebuild the regulator. But pull the trim panel and take a look before you try to operate it again; might be salvagable(?)

Maybe if you had the 99.5 model, you'd have better window regulators.

Default By any chance would you have the instruction sheet? Or a place to buy from...

I see they have it at PAP-Parts for ~$70, any better deals out there I don't know of?

Thanks for the info!

Default yup, my A4's driver door is apart in my garage right now...

They send me 8E0 837 462C instead of 8E0 837 461... freak'n fuggers @ genuinevwaudiparts.com! Supposedly the -461 is on the way to me w/ a return label in the box.

User 'nanotech' on B6 forum has a <a href="https://forums.audiworld.com/a4gen2/msgs/1080681.phtml">very good write up</a> that I'm following.
