RE: Power Window Regulator Questions

If I am not mistaken?......what Rod is talking about IS NOT an Audi part, it
is an aftermarket setup, it does not work very good, it is not a bolt on and
you will have to play with it to get to work correctly................
My suggestion is to stay away from it, even a rebuilt cable mechanism is
better (check Mountain Audi in Colorado), believe or not .....the Audi set
up is good, the worm gear set up is slow binds easily and is a pain to
install...........I know I have 2 of them.......

Subject:	Power Window Regulator Questions

Rod at The Parts Connections tells me that there is an Audi part numbered
Bosch window regulator that uses the same worm gear drive as used in the
model cars. According to Rod, Audi has made these available for retrofit in
older cars because they wanted to eliminate the problems which cables
fraying, etc. once and for all in the older cars. For the type 44 there are
supposedly no modifications required to install these. (Rod did indicate
on the 4k, CGT, and ur-Q some modifications may be required.) Could this be
true? Audi actualy wanting to improve things on the older cars?

Our q-list discount price on these is $125.00 each. If that truely ends
to replace these infernal things once and for all I think it may well be a
great way to go.

Does anyone have experience with these yet? How are they holding up in the
newer cars? (100 and A6 owners feel free to chime in on this) TIA
