Rip :

Hi, welcome to JA. The only computer under the driver seat is the power seat memory module, the part number is XXXXX It's around $595. I'm skeptical it is your problem, it's possible it shorted a fuse or circuit with the water intrusion, which may have affected the power window circuit. In any case if it has gotten water in it, it is most likely faulty. Do the power seats work? I'm posting an illustration of how it looks.

Ok, so the name of the module is "Power Seat Module," or "Memory Seat Module." The part number is XXXXX best method to locate one. I'm not familiar with any wrecking yards in your area, but I often find these on eBay. Here is a link to one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Audi-Allroad-LH-seat-module-2002-4b0959760b-/330898707011?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4d0b199243&vxp=mtr

Also, here is the link to the illustration you can't see from my earlier post.

    Ok, so that's it. The manual is divided in sections, so the first posts are on removing the plastic trim covers at the ends of the seat rails. The next is how to access and remove the seat hold down bolts at each corner. And the last is accessing and removing the control module. I havent checked, but usually Youtube has some good videos on removing seats, if not for your model, just viewing videos for other Audi's can be useful.

    Thanks! Please leave a positive rating :)

    Hello ,
    Here to answer automotive questions and make you feel comfortable and become familiar with your product.

     

     

    there is not a memory seat module under the drivers seat. It is called a comfort control module and you will have to remove the side trim and partially lift up the carpet reach under and pull out the plastic box that it is sealed in. You do not have to remove the seat just move it all the way back. You will have to get the part number off the side of the module. Since it is being taken out it is the best way to check the part number on the module itself
