    Spark plugs on S3, where are they?

    I've just been having a look for the spark plugs on my S3 (to do a compression test) and I can't find them! There are 4 suspicious looking covers on top of the block, but I can't see any HT leads coming away from them.

    Are they down the back under the crossflow or worse still under the manifold? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Re: Spark plugs on S3, where are they?

    cant say i`ve ever looked at the engine naked but surely they are under the coil packs (those 4 black covers)...

    anyone care to help us out.

    Re: Spark plugs on S3, where are they?

    Yeah after speaking to a former TT owning friend, that apparently is where they are. Unfortunately 2 are under some sort of cover.

    He also said there was a recall on dodgy H type ones - does that ring any bells?

    Re: Spark plugs on S3, where are they?

    it was my assumption that it was very similar to that off the S3 engine, the car is a Audi 80 or something.

    Re: Spark plugs on S3, where are they?

    OK. I have taken the plastic engine cover off and on the top of the block there are the 4 coil packs, however there is something obstructing the 2 on the nearside. How easy is that to get at?
