You don't need to remove the motor to reset things (rotary switch models).

Crank it closed, ignition off.

Turn on ignition. It should stay closed. Cycle all of the functions, just to
be sure (it's an Audi, you know).

Be happy.

Ask me how I know (the pawls on my crank thing are getting a bit worn).
