    Most likely shorted out due to the leaky washer pipes that tend to mess up back there.

    audi should cover it, if not just say your going to watchdog to get them to investigate the 'burning rear end' of your car and see what they have to say. that is seriously not safe!

    Cheers Ash, you should have seen & smelled the smoke - I was nearly sick & almost had someone crash in the back of the car because I had to bail out to try & stop the smoking / fire issue!
    This car is an 2006 sportback, it's pristine - bought from wear side Audi & serviced by them ( me dads pride & joy ) - luckily there is a decent fella who is the workshop manager called Ernie, this man is top notch might I add - if he can do you a good turn he will. I spoke to Ernie today & he said he sent a Dis report in last night & he is now waiting for a reply from Audi uk ( usually takes 2hrs ) but we have heard nothing since it was sent in at 16:30 tuesday evening ????
    Even worse, I had to hand my sportback tdi 170 Quattro over to me mother to run around in til' it's sorted either way............. ( am ill incase she bumps it, took me ages to find lol )
