    I am having a hard time getting my back glass replaced on my 96 sedan. The one the glass shop got doesnt fit. Is there an audi model that shares the same glass? I would rather get new being that I have glass coverage, and currently have plastic over the back of the car. Any help would be greatly...

    How in the world do you remove the rear door window from the window regulator assembly? I've searched my Bentley for all years. It only has a 5 sentence blip on how to install the lock pin (window to regulator) but that's it! I'm not at all sure about removal.

    2004 GLX Just had the glass portion fall off :icon_eek: Need to replace it. It chipped so it needs to be replaced. Suggestions please? It is a heated mirror if that makes a difference in the suggestions for the glass. Can I replace just the glass? What prep work is involved? It appears there...

    Last winter I noticed my drivers side door mirror on my '03 B5.5 wasn't heating so bought an OEM replacement from IRP last week. When I took off the original, to my surprise it measured the proper ~10 ohms and I was also able to confirm the circuit in the car was working with an ammeter in place...

    Someone broke the left side quarter glass on my 2007 Passat Wagon, probably the most expensive glass on this car as I found out. New one with replacement in the shop is about $500. Owner of the shop told me that I should try to find a used glass and that they can replace it for $100. I was able...

    I have noticed that most Americans and Europeans don't tint or put sun control film on their cars. Some do ,b ut most don't. I have always had better quality film on my cars and the interior lasts longer, there's less glare, your a/c works better and you have some privacy. So why don't more...

    I came out today to find my rear hatch glass broken on my 2002 wagon. The glass place wants almost 300 bucks to replace it. I can get one from my local salvage yard for 45 dollars. I was thinking of changing it myself. Anyone done this before? It looks like it is held in place by urethane versus...

    Hey all, My glass expansion plug and pin combo fell out of my back door window glass and I've been reading the how to's and videos for putting this thing back. Some explanations are very good but I have a couple of questions. First, my feeling is that the best and correct way to install the...

    As I posted previously, I am replacing my rear door due to some body damage. As part of the process, I want to put my original glass, from the damaged door, into the door that is being installed, since I want the tint to match. I have the tinted glass puled out of the original (damaged door)...
    Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades? If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades...

    What's the part number or even just the name of the exterior rubber trim piece about 2.5 mm wide, running the horizontal length under the rear hatch glass between the glass and the painted tailgate. Mine has cracked and I'd like to replace. ECS and google shoots me blanks. Any diy / McGyver...

    Does anyone know the best approach to replacing the mirror glass? Lost the passenger side mirror glass about 3 weeks ago. Looks like I may have left the heated feature on this winter and this caused the adhesive to fail and the glass mirror fell off?? Driver side mirror glass is still attached...

    Hi I have a Passat TDI 2003 saloon. I had to break the passenger side quarter glass to recover keys left inside. I need some help on how this can be replaced. I spoke to few glass companies who would at least charge £120 for this, it as an old car and i can't afford that much. I found the part...
