About 3 weeks ago I did this repair on my rear drivers side window. I did it
just as the Bentley instructed. I ordered the swivel pins from my local Audi
dealer which took 3 days to come in. I think that for both it was about
$2.00. The pins do not come with bolts, so make sure that you order some
that will fit properly or get the parts guy to find some for you that will
fit. Overall for me it turned out to be a good solid inexpensive fix. The
only downside I've come across is that the swivel pins rattle very slightly,
but not enough in my opinion to justify the purchase price of a new
