At a quick glance that window regulator looks very similar to one from a Mk2 golf ??
I have found Robinson Instruments in Onehunga, Auckland are pretty good.

Looks very similar indeed but the brackets aren't quite in the same spots.

The guy I got the wrong window reg from has the other side so I've bought it from him. Third time lucky I hope...

It's in and goes up and down. Didn't have time to get the glass in and fully test last night.
Need to clean up the window switches internally as they are a bit intermittent.

This makes me very happy. First time the door has been together for about 22 months!

My door now closes with a thunk, not a clang. Judging by the noise I made I'm a little too excited about that.

Picked up a box of random 80s Audi parts from another VASK member. Looks useful.





 Some good bits in there - lots of door handles, a brand new chrome trim for one, fuel pump and filters, lots of window switches, couple of (I think) 80 rear window regulators, some fasteners, a few KV engine parts,

And my instrument cluster is still in Christchurch at Get Electronic. Sounds like they're having trouble fixing it :(

I didn't look closely at it but it has a fat wire coming out so I assume it's electric.

:D The spares pile is slowly building up! Need to get a bit more organised with it all.

Really want my instruments back and working as I'm so close to being able to take it for a WOF.

Initial diagnosis was:

Quote
Basically a high voltage break down is happening here ether A : the transformers isolation is breaking down at its High operation voltage and sparking over thus showing it to stop or B: the mosfet drivers that switch the high voltage on the circuit are not getting full saturation and failing
Get Electronic
fixing the issue : i would start to replace the Fets (mostfets) first due too them normally being off the shelf components and the eaisist to replace quickly without trying to get the original transformer that would be ncely priority and only made by audi or rather by contract to audi  and in nothing elce so supply would be hard to get.

After a couple of weeks:
Quote
The flickering cause is still undetermined
Possibly won't be able so fix, especially if in the main micro processor
going to try jam in my own Clock signal to run the displays thats the next step
thanks for your patience too !
never expected this one to be such a troublesome unit

the older stuff is usually much more harder to repair
ICs that need replacement are no longer available to change over as parts anymore
were seeing this from about 1997 and below
