    Black stain on the ground

    As the title suggests really noticed a stain at the back of my car just infront of the rear drivers side wheel. Not sure what it is at all, it has no obvious smell to it. Its a jet black stain. i have just replaced my fuel filter and this is the general area its beneath. anyone gt any ideas. Its a 2002 bam s3 if that helps any. Cheers

    Well I have had the back end of the car up and can't see anything obvious, no oil from Haldex, rear diff or brake fluid, guess I'll just need to keep an eye on it. On a more typical note I did notice my rear xenon arm is missing and the earthing to my Haldex has corroded through

    Yeah my haldex earth is broken. Halfords to an earth £4.99 bargain. Got one sitting here waiting to be fitted. Missing? So just a wire and connector dangling? Weird! Lol.

    No worries mate. I'm sure you'll need measurements of metal rod etc So it sits at correct level

    I'll take a measurement for you tomorrow mate. You a fabricator then? Might be easier to get one of an s3 that's breaking maybe. Or buy one from Audi, copy it then give it back
