Re: brose motor brushes(window motors)

Couldn't agree more about the window motor. I've done mine on 86 5kcst. Took
apart, cleaned the contacts with sand paper, put some grease and assembled.
Works like new, was dead before. Mine was made by Siemens, should be
similar. I' am sure that 90% of Audi window problems could be treated this way.
