The other thing i looked at was the door cards.
As to conversations with Kev, This is how its been approached and it looks so much neater


ftp://

if 130mm is taken out of the card and stuck back together, you don't get the nasty gap at the back where the 2 bits meet.

Have you made any headway on this, Tone?

Keep us informed.
I think you'll find the top of the strut (the three bolts on the car) hasn't been modified.
I'm sure it's 32mm it has to move.

Hi Tone
Have you had the full on suspension kit from Kev including the arm and strut tops?

As Brian said, try the reset?

Hmmm. Maybe the window has caught the inner locking tab, bending it so it doesn't  work and pushing the bar off.

A few more updates

Insulated the inside of the door, and prepped the top ready to spray black


Finished the clocks off



Shutzed everything!





And insulated the rear bit

In all honesty, I'd say yes, but it'd be a faff and difficult, but far from impossible.

Yes, used the audi spline and melted it on to the Peugeot motor sprocket.
The only thing to make is the plate to fix to.

I might start stockpiling them  Grin

Everything works perfectly. The glass sits behind the rubber bit and seal correctly, when the door glass goes down on door opening (10mm) it comes out of the rubber and clears on opening. It couldn't be better for a Peugeot cut down to be a Ferrari rep using Audi glass  Cheesy
I'm very pleased  Grin

right, here we go, Audi a3 window mod part deux
I've got them fitting perfect, and i mean perfect without much modifying to the roof......I feel the need to point out that there is no 'modifying' to the roof. When i have read this in other places, the way my brain works (i'm a black or white kinda guy) modifying means serious work, its not, you twat the bits of metal that hold the door rubber trim backwards or forwards to match the shape of the glass. i've also cut the extreme metal plate that meets at the top corner with the roof and bent it forward to the same line as the pug roof bit that holds the door rubber, so the door seal flows around better, it also helps with thew shape of the glass. i've also packed this part of the rubber down to meet the glass, i used 20mm plastic packers diminishing down from 5mm to 1mm in 40mm steps, this brought the rubber down to the exact shape of the glass.
With the frame, i've fixed it in each corner to hold it in place and the bolts are accessable incase it needs to come out to replace a broken window or anything, the back of the pug door will need to be cut again, but at least it's not impossible.
now the motor swap....with pictures!
There is plenty on here and other places about taking the 2 motors apart and whats need, so i won't mention that too much.
Thanks to dads360 for explaining it on his thread to me, and this is how i interpreted it.

esential kit, please note the long m8 bolt


cut the audi spline off here


i put the pug cog in a vice, small cog down


Then cut the big cog off leaving a square, i also put a few little slits in


get one of these


and heat the bastard up to red hot


put the m8 bolt through, grab the end of bolt and trap head of bolt in vice, be quick as the bolt gets hot. Don't heat the bolt up as the plastic will melt and your plastic bit will end up wonky......no one likes a wonky bit
wear a mask or cover your nose as the burning, melting plastic stinks and burns the top of your nose when breathed in...i know this now from experience


shove the cut off spline bit of plastic from the a3 motor on and push down with a 12mm spanner to meet the remaining cog


knock the bolt out


and put the remaining cog bit back into the pug cog shaped bit on the motor


make an adapter plate to bolt onto the audi bolts (i made a template from paper) and cut the 3 audi inserts off the motor so as to leave 12mm sticking out to fix the plate to. please ignore the holes for the pug motor, i changed my mind due to resticted access


drill 3 of the 4 mounting holes through on the pug motor, put the new added spline into the audi splne hole, drill through the mounting holes, tap the plate and hey presto...its fitted

is it not because the window has to slightly rise once door is shut ?
This would be done via an ecu or the vehicles programming, the motor itself is just 12v one way and 12v the other to make it go up and down, so wouldn't matter what is on the end of the wires, so long as it was wired correctly. I'm not sure why there is 8 pins on each, but sure the'd be for similar things on both cars, as the motor units are actually the same make. (i could be completely wrong though)
speaking of which, has anyone got a pinout of the 8 pin connectors, or wiring diagrams of the Pug and the Audi? I'm struggling to find them online.

just a thought here, but does anyone know if there is a reason the Audi window regulator can't be used?
both Audi and Pug items are 8 pin and thought it would be easier to rewire than do the plate and bush thing.

Cheers Tone.
How's life with your finished one?
Have you been driving it much?

I'm glad you gents have sorted things out.

Right windows.....
I've had a fiddle this evening for a few hours and virtually got one of the doors done.
There's an awful lot of bits to do, but it's all really enjoyable  Smiley

I've modified (bent and cut bits off) the door lock as it is really tight in there.


cut more bits out of the door handle as again, its very tight
i've also made a swanky bit of pull wire for the door handle


i made a bit of a runner too and the bit of angle on the left fixes to the Audi frame


frame bolted in and glass fitted




That's a lot of door i've cut away  Shocked


door skin fitted back on and door closed....hammer at the ready



i pulled part of the rubber down at the top just to make it fit right, i'm sure this is what has been done by others.
with a bit of titivating, welding and pu adhesive, i belive this will be lovely

When i bond the rear quarters on, i shall trim back the added metal that holds the rubber  and i think this will make the glass fit even better as in the middle, where the two bits of added metal are welded together, the glass is hitting this part first so compresing the rubber more than anywhere else.
it'll probably be the weekend til i can play with the other side.  Cry
