    by the sounds of it you have replaced the lambda sensor after the cat, on the later model s3's they have two lambda sensors 1st on top of the exhaust manifold and the 2nd after the cat so might be the 1st that needs changing

    I assume you have cleared the faults using VAGCOM too? a registered fault code won't go away until you have cleared it... if the problem is still there then it will return... if you have fixed the problem then it won't...

    yes take the engine cover off and look to the back off the engine and you will see it on top of the manifold, little bit akward to remove this one
