Re: 1994 S4 - Door seals, a/c cut out


    I don't have the info for your '95 S6, but the adjustment specs for the
Type 44 chassis are as follows:
    Front edge of sunroof - 1mm below roofline
    Rear edge of sunroof - 1mm above roofline

    I imagine the specs for your car are similar. In any case, it is a good
starting point.
