      I'm no genius, but from the above calc, you're adding 2.5" to dim A, and 2" to dim B.

      Hub thickness doesn't play a part.

      The Audi 120amp comes with a serp pulley. Not sure on alignment, but it will bolt right to the 16v block. Is reasonably cheap from parts resellers.

      How long has the car sat? The brakes are probably just rusted to the rotors.

      Try using a breaker bar on the axle nut to turn the wheel.

      You could also put the transmission in neutral and spin...

      Doors are T45. Get a good socket style.

      I twisted a cheap HF set trying to take my doors off.

      It's odd that they switched from the MK2 spec of 95 ft-lbs to the angle torque spec in the MK3.

      Although MK2 bolts are known to strip...I guess angle torque can help prevent that.

      I wonder if...

      First reply is correct. They're a slight press fit into the subframe, they just tap out (most of the subframes I've seen they actually come free and spin, and drop out when I take the nuts off).

      Take off the interior door panel and you should be able to see what is broken.
      Most likely you will need to get a new (or junkyard) regulator.

      My windshields have always been glued in.

      Rear side glass is installed like you describe, but windshield is always w/ adhesive and the seal just covers the gap between windshield and bodywork.

      Yeah, you have to rotate the axles above the trans to get by the subframe. It's a major pain the first few times, but once you get the maneuver down, nice and easy.

      Which bolt?

      I was giving the single bolt on the hinge through the roof. I believe the other end of the hinge that bolts to the hatch may be M6 (two bolts per hinge).
