I have an Audi...

I have an Audi A4 2004 cabriolet (the soft top). I had to replace the rear passenger side window regulator. After installing the window it does not line up with the front window proper

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your A4 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yep. Me and my son. I have tried adjusting the window stops at the top of the regulator, however, this does not fix the issue. When it closes it seems to tilt forward just a little to far.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having is that the glass is not in the groove/rail properly. You need to adjust the glass. If possible, you maybe able to leave the glass just loose enough so that it can slide or be slid into the proper setting. You were supposed to mark the glass position in relation to the regulator so that it would go up properly.

Here I am attaching glass and regulator replacement information just in case.

Hey Todd,
The info you provided wasn't exactly what I needed, but it got me going in the right direction. What I found out was that the rubber grommets the widow is secured with have a little room for play in window position, and when I got frustrated enough and just started hauling on the window it surprisingly moved. But Thanks for the help it got me thinking about the problem differently.

Thank you for the update. I'm happy that you have got this issue resolved.
