#16 of 34 My windows have a mind of their own
Jun 01, 2007 (8:31 pm)
I, too, have the windows that decide when they want to go down. I wont beat a dead horse but the 5 second reset doesn't seem to ok for me. Its totally random when he windows go up and seal. Hopefully someone has seen their problem rectified. Please share.

Did you ever find the solution to your window problem as I have that problem every time I go to lock or open my car the windows come down.

Hi, I am having the exact same problem with my 95 c220 mb. But, to add salt to the wound, the window also goes down when the key is in the iginition. Did you every find out what the problem was in your car?

there is a little switch in the door latch that tells computer door position. you will have to buy a new latch unless you are very mechanically inclined. its not hard to get to at all after the the latch is out of the door. ( i bought a switch from radio shack and super glued it in place.) its still working after about 100 miles but im not holding my breath. if it fails again i will make a metal bracket.

the rear window comes unglued from the convertible top and cannot really be repaired properly. Replacement cost? $3100 for a new top. It just happened to me (see my pic album)

Re the window coming unglued from the convertible top: I spoke the the customer service 'advocate' She indicated that this is a 'routine maintenance issue' I beg to differ! When you pay $42,000 for a car you should expect that it can stay outside in a 'routine' downpour and not fall to pieces! She said that Audi was 'not aware of the problem.' I pointed out to her the fact that my research on various internet car forums had turned up many, many problems with the rear window separating from the convertible top. She said that the internet was 'not a reliable source.' I told her that I thought that the people who buy, drive and pay to maintain Audi automobiles are a pretty good source of how they run and the good and bad features. Right now my 2001 TT Roadster is sitting at Momentum Audi in Houston and is going to stay until I hear something back from the Audi advocate. It is $3100 for a new top and who is to say that the window will not separate again, since Audi is 'not aware of the problem' and is using the same glue.
#22 of 34 Trunk and fuel cap won't open
Dec 13, 2009 (10:14 am)
I am having trouble with my trunk and fuel tank. I can't get either to open, my key remote seems dead, and the buttons inside won't work. I am waiting for new batteries for my key to arrive. Has anyone else had this problem, and is there a way to get into the trunk so I can manually open the fuel tank?

I have the exact same problem with my Audi TT roadster/2001 with 38000 miles on it...& it has been kept in an indoor garage in a show room condition!!! but did not matter i suppose>>>>...i have called the Audi of America several times, I took it to Audi Of Charlotte for an estimate (as per Audi of america,s advise!!!!.).The cost $3700 ( replacement part $2600 + labor $1100)...& Audi of America is willing to pay 10% of this expense to help me out!!!!???? so generous....I did not accept that offer....As per the service manager they have seen many cases of REAR WINDOW SEPARATION FROM CONVERTIBLE TOP IN AUDI TT...
I,m looking for Audi tt owners with the same problem...Perhaps Audi of America is looking for another Class Action Lawsuit >>>????

I have the same problem, just few weeks ago i saw it on my Audi TT/quattro roadster/2001 with 38000 miles.......I noticed it while the car was parked in my indoor garage...plus my car has not been driven for the last 2 years that much!!!!...in 2 years i put less than 300 miles on it...i was so surprised to see that ...it cost $3700 to replace the whole convertible top.....insane!!!! ...It seems it has been a nationwide problem for Audi TT owners...but the AUDI OF AMERICA CORP is not willing to accept it as a manufacturing defect....I,m not happy about it..perhaps, if we can gather more AUDI TT owners with the same problem The Corp would listen and do something about it!!!!
