> Hello All:
> I've just been messing around with a similar problem. A 4K window

> THe track has a bit of a different 'curve' to it, to match the coupe
> 'curve, and the lower foot is mounted at a slightly different angle, and
> holes in the part that move up and down don't line up the same. Yes, you
> fit in a 4k mechanism sort of. I did, and had exactly the same problems
> daniel had.
> Also be aware that Audi changed the position of the motor relative to the
> track somewhere in life, so even if you have a 'coupe' track assembly, you
> have the motor hanging in space inside the door. I have seen a template
> somewhere that you put over the original holes, to show where to drill

> Conversely, I spent two evenings trying to get a 'coupe' mechanism work in
> 4K (the motor had died). After wondering why it was so wrong and not
> at all (the window would jam every time, if it didn't first fall off the
> track!), I matched the coupe mechanism up to the 4K mechanism.
> Sure enough, just a little bit different!! But just enough to make it a

> around with the wrong one.
