The same goes for the electric mirrors.

Try cleaning the terminals at the electric mirrors control.  Remove it from
the armrest (pry it out and disconnect the cable connector to it).  Look
into the area the wire connector came out of.  It should be corroded and
green.  Take a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean it out thoroughly.
You should see rows of clean metal contact strips when you're done.
Re-attach the controller and re-insert it into the armrest.  
This worked for me.

Not worth the effort or expense.  These cars (Quattro Coupes) are worth more
in pieces than whole (that is, you could part out most of these cars for
more than you could sell them for) so I wouldn't recommend it.  If you would
like to throw caution to the wind and do it, a friend of mine just
dismantled two ur-quattros... I'm sure he'll be happy to talk to you.
