Audi TT Quattro: hi, 2008 audi tt roadster, passenger window

This answer was rated:

hi, 2008 audi tt roadster, passenger window wont close. make awkward sound on way up. now the window is almost completely open but wont raise. but intermittently I was able to close it this week.

AudiDoc :

Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.

AudiDoc :

The typical cause for this is a broken window regulator

AudiDoc :

The regulator is the window lifting assembly inside door panel

AudiDoc :

The regulator assembly is $299 and labor to replace is approximately 2.5 hours in a shop

AudiDoc :

So estimate about $550 (US) to have it repaired. I know prices are higher in Canada, but don't know exactly how much higher

Customer:

ok, do you know if there may be a recall for this? from what I can tell online it seems like a recurring problem for this model.

AudiDoc :

Let me check for you. It is a pretty common problem, but I don't believe there is a recall

AudiDoc :

I will confirm this however

AudiDoc :

Sorry, no recall on file for this problem

Customer:

alright.

AudiDoc :

sorry about that bit of news

Customer:

it just sucks cause now it wont close at all. sorta stuck with an open window.

AudiDoc :

maybe have another person try to lift up on the window as another is pressing the close button, or is the window completely retracted?

Customer:

it comes out. then back in. sometimes in same place and doesn't necessarily retract

AudiDoc :

that sounds like the pinch protection acting up due to the regulator cables binding

Customer:

cheaper? diy?

AudiDoc :

let me see if there is an aftermarket regulator available

AudiDoc :

Unfortunately, the regulator is only available as original equipment on the MkII TT

Customer:

ok so regulator cables binding still means broken regulator?

Customer:

I thought you meant it didn't need to be replaced

AudiDoc :

The cables are part of the entire regulator assembly

AudiDoc :

the regulator does need to be replaced as a unit

Customer:

ok ok

Customer:

thanks I guess

AudiDoc :

Wish I had better news or the magic bullet fix for you

Customer:

no worries

AudiDoc :

But I've got to be as straight as possible

Customer:

lol, I know. peace dude
