On my last go around with Audi type 44 window regulators I got smart  
and did it the way the factory does i.e. assemble the window and  
regulator in it's aluminum frame and then install it into the door  
shell. I wish I'd figured that out years ago. Four bolts and the  
whole window assembly comes out so you can work on it at the bench.  
Just draw circles around the bolt heads with a Sharpie before  
removing and keep track of how many shims are under each of the two  
bottom bolts.
