    Servicing my S3!

    Well im a bit skint at the moment so to preserve engine i changed the oil n filters myself until i can afford next full service. (biggy at 82k i reckon, as ive read on here water pump etc should be changed?)
    Anyway i bought some plugs and fuel filter at the same time, how do i change the plugs?! I mean how do those connectors come off without me breaking them, and whats the best way to remove all those vacume hoses etc to get to the other 3 plugs and connectors!

    Whilst im at it where is the fuel filter, im guessing up near the back of the car? As you can tell im a bit of a rusty mechanic, did my vehicle apprenticeship in london fire brigade when i was 16, that's a long time ago now

    TIA

    Audi say it's not servicable, but IMO it's definitly worth changing, with thousand and thousands of litres having flowed through, it's going to be pretty full of contaminants. for 10 it's well worth changing, quite east too, it's forward of the rear right wheel, on the under body.
