[200q20v] Window

I decided not to wait.
I bought two steel binding screw/posts and some set screws at Ace Hardware
and modified them by drilling a 1/16" hole near the end and slotting it with
a dremel tool.  I also took the sharp edge off the set screws so as not to
cut into the cable.
Worked great, no extra noise at all (yet).  I will report back if I have to
re-do the job.

total cost: $3.50.
The dealer (Brad Noe Audi, Tulsa) requested that I prepay for these
pins/screws (a $8 purchase) and wait a few days for the order (its 30 miles
out of my way).  I avoid buying anything from them if at all possible.

Thanks for the reply, you were the only one, I guess no one else has had
this problem lately.

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
