View Full Version : Please Help Front Passenger Window/Door

24-12-2016, 11:57 AM
Hi All,

This morning I had an issue with the passenger door where it wouldn't shut properly, on opening the door the window didn't drop slightly like normal and then when I shut the door there was a 6mm gap of the glass not being flush the door not closed properly with the whole car, (apologies no pictures as I was in a panic - it started raining)

Opened the door again and slammed it shut and it closed flush however the glass didn't do its thing by raising to the top as it hadn't dropped in the first place.

So, I started the car and lowered the window up and down fully a few times, after this with the engine running the door opened normally by dropping the glass and the closing flush and glass rising again,

Could this be a motor issue or something in the door?

Any thoughts would be appreciated,

Could be anything from it 'having a moment' to a possible failure. Mine did a similar thing about 3 months ago. Sorted it the same way as you and no issue since. Scanned it with Vcds too and no faults stored so hopefully it was just one of them things.

On my profile pic car the frameless front windows have a lowering/opening sequence in order to clear the car bodywork.

It only usually fails when:

1) The battery has been disconnected and the windows have to be reset
2) If the battery is low

Am not sure how to reset on an A7 but on my XK you have to

a) turn the ignition to auxiliary
b) using the passenger window control (on the passenger side) lower the window all the way and hold
c) you will hear a gentle click after 2 seconds of the window being fully open
d) put the window all the way up and hold until you hear a gentle click after two seconds
e) remove key and try the door/window again

That process resets the regulatory travel memory of the window on my 20yr old car, but as I've said not sure how a new fangled Audi resets.
