    :D :surprise: 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 my car has not been driven for the last 2 years that much!!!! 2 years i put less than 300 miles on it...i was so surprised to see that 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!!!!

    I bought a new ‘08 TT convertible in May of ‘09. The windows are “one touch” up and down when the engine is on, but adjustable up and down when engine is off. (Well, very rarely they are mulit-touch when the engine is on.) The service manager says he spoke to Audi engineering and they say that’s the way the car was designed, and there is nothing that can be done to give me “multi-touch” windows up and down with the engine on. Can this be true, or is Audi just trying to avoid a recall? If the latter, what should I do?

    I have a 2002 TT quattro rag top. Recently the drivers window stopped doing the slight roll down when opening the door (it still works on the passenger door). If the car is running and I open the door it gives me the drivers door open display which goes away when the door is closed. Is this a computer issue that can be reset or are there multiple switches in the door?

    Both windows do the slight roll down when I release the top latch like they should.

    Any ideas where to start?

    I've got a 2002 Audi TT convertible and the rear window is separating from the top. It just happened today! The car is garage kept and has low miles. Did you ever come up with a satisfactory remedy for this problem. I called a local top repair and they want $1500 and said it's unrepairable. I saw on another post that a guy used rhino glue to repair his corvette.
  • I have a 2001 TT Roadster and 2 weeks ago the rear window separated from the top about 3/4 of the way around. I'm being told that it cannot be glued, that it will have to be replaced. $4000 if not under warranty. When I told the service Rep at Audi that I had seen some postings of owners having the tops re-glued he stated that he had never heard of that but would be glad to do some internet checking himself and give me a call back.

    I did resolve my problem with the rear window by changing it...the cost is around $1500, ...indeed, it can not be reglued...I believe it's a manufacturing problem, therefore...I advise you to call the Audi headquarter & based on the condition of your car (if it has been kept in an excellent condition ), they might partially help you out with the expenses of the replacement.......They really care about their Audi customers & their luck!.

    I have a 2001 TT quattro. My windows would roll down a couple of inches when I put the rag top down but they would not roll back up when I closed my door and the "rag top open" warning would come on. I took my car to my mechanic and he told me that the door latch mechanism in the doors control the windows going up and down. He replaced both latches (730.00!) and my windows work fine now, although the drivers side automatic feature is now screwed up. It goes down automatically but when you try to roll it up it rolls up 6" and drops 3", rolls up 2" and drops 2". He reprogrammed the windows but it still screws up. I have to roll the window up 2" at a time. Passenger side window works fine. Also, before I replaced the latches the door would re-lock even if I opened the door and put the key in the ignition without starting the car. New latches fixed the "locking" issue.

    Don't you love the guy saying he never heard of such a problem? I don't even own an Audi, and I've heard nothing but complaints from seemingly everyone owning this roadster, particularly about this window/glue issue.

    My rear window came unglued in a car wash this morning. I am the original owner of the car and it is in excellent condition. I could not believe it when I sat there in the car and watched (and felt) water rushing in the back window. I am going to call Audi Service tomorrow and see what they intent to do about it. Warranty or not, the windows are suppose to stay attached to the car.
  • Rear window on my '01 TT roadster started to separate after 7yrs, this after a long list of other expensive repairs together with Audi 's "couldn't give a damn + let's not inform our customers" attitude has turned me away from ever buying or recommending audi cars again.
  • 2002 TT Roadster - Rear window separating from top. I am trying to get all those who have experienced this problem to respond or message me with their end resolution. I am considering filing a claim on my insurance (Geico) so if you have taken this route, please contact me and let me know what your experience was and how it concluded. Thanks in advance for any information. :)
