Audi A4 Convertible Electric Window Switch Contact Cleaning.

Monday, August 6th, 2012

I’ve been meaning to contribute to this site for a while now, generally with knowledge I have gained whilst fixing small issues with my Audi A4 Convertible.

This article covers the cleaning of the contacts within my Audi’s electric window switches.

I had noticed that my electric windows were getting rather intermittent in operation, my rear passenger window, wouldn’t wind up at all with the switch and had to be wound up using the the large “all window” switch, also the front two windows would not “auto” up or down unless the buttons were hammered repeatedly.

The answer seemed to be to remove the switch unit and open it up to clean the contacts, and this article will explain the process I followed to do this.
