Default Window wont drop when opening door?

Ok, I am trying to figure a few things out on the TT. On the passenger door, when I open it up, the window will not do the "normal" drop of about a 1/4inch.........so when I shut the door, the window wont seal up.

I read through my bentley book and I cant find anything on the sensor or whatever it is that makes the window drop. Can anyone give me insight to this? Where or what should I do to try and get the window to drop like it should?

Thanks again for the help............like I said, I am trying to figure out and fix a few issues on my TT.

switch/sensor is in the door latch assembly. mine doesnt work either, but if i move the latch by hand, it'll get the window to activate.

never bothered to fix it, dunno if it can be adjusted/cleaned, or if something needs replacing.

this happend with ours but what fixed it was tightening the latch assempbly for the conv top, somehow that latch triggers it. but ours wasnt from opening and closing now that i think about it, it was when we put the top back up the windows would not go up that 1/4 inch or whaterver to seal.

Hi All,

It appears that I have similar problem, where the driver side window does not drop down by 5mm when the door is opened. At first this problem was intermittent, however now it simply never drops when the door is open. My local Audi dealer wants 100+vat in order to investigate the problem (do they not know there is a credit crunch!). However I am pretty certain it must be the micro switch in the handle assembly. Have been told that the switch can not be sold separately, as it comes as part of the assembly and costs 80. I noticed that Steve's instructions shows how to replace this switch, however what is the exact spec of the switch as I will try and sourced independently from rip off Audi? I would very much appreciate any advice.

Regards Chris

you could always take apart your assembly, and take out the switch then go to audi or a parts store and look for a similar switch... as you can see, it doesnt have to be an exact match and seemingly and ole switch would work

Thanks for your advice theTTkid, however how easy is it to get to the assembly and take out the switch? Do you have to strip down the whole interior door?

na shouldnt be too bad... im sure it must just be a few screws and bolts here and there, though im not 100% sure... things on these cars seem harder than they actually are.

you may be able to get some luck on google for a diy to take it apart, or, it couldnt hurt to call up the local dealer and ask them if they have any tips or a "how to" page they could print you out

You should be able to find the Microswitch at an electronics store such as Radio Shack or here
