Hi All,

Okay, I'll bite.  This is off the thread about ignition coils, but DocWyte
DID mention "how long has it taken VW/Audi to come out with the fix for the
power window regulators".  (see the bottom of his post).  After all, it
isn't really a big deal;  I have 4 windows and at least 1 of them works most
of the time.

Is there such a fix?  If so, where can I find it?  -- on the internet, of
