    I don't think you can reset the indicator through the cluster in the A3, sorry.

    It tells you how to do this in your manual. Have a look...

    1) Switch off ignition.

    2) Press the right-hand button and hold while switching on the ignition. The display should now read "SERVICE!".

    3) Turn the left-hand button in an anti-clockwise direction until the word "SERVICE!" is cleared from the display.

    Re: Service interval indicator?

    Its on page 66 of my manual under "service indicator" in the controls and equipment section.

    May be a different page depending on the version of your manual.

    It'll be in there somewhere tho.

    Re: Service interval indicator?

    The instruction I posted above are out of the supplement to the owners manual. I've just notcied the instructions in the actual manual are slightly different and as follows:

    1) Switch off ignition.

    2) Press the right-hand button and switch on the ignition while keeping the button pressed. The display should now read "service OIL".

    3) Pull out the left-hand button and keep pulled out until the letters "service OIL" are cleared in the display. The display will now show "service - - -".

    4) Press the right-hand button again to call up the service indicator display "service INSP" and clear it in the same way by pulling out the left-hand button.

    Re: Service interval indicator?

    thatnks for all the replies guys, my manual says hold right button down, turn ignition on and the hold left button down. nothing is happening though. how many miles should it show till next service is due once i have worked this out?

    I went to audi's the other day and the changed it from avs to fixed servicing and it reads 9300 miles till service now.. after all my attempts to reset it it still says that..

    Sounds like it is already reset then. Mine displayed 9300 miles for a while after it was reset. After a few hundred miles (not sure exactly how many and could have even been near a thousand) it sorted itself out and started to count down.
