    Smile Problems on your Audi A4 1.9 tdi

    Hello all, I've recently signed up to the site, & I'm looking to buy a Audi A4 1.9 Tdi SE 02-04.

    I'm just trying to find out what are the common problems to look out for, if anyone can give me a bit of head's up I'd really appreciate it!

    cheers

    sunny

    i think they are realy strong mate iv got a 1.9 tdi sports with 140k on the clocks still drives really really good and you would not no it i think just look for the same as you would on any car id make sure the turbo is good and not making any wierd sounds and no black smoke.
    aircon seems comen problems with them too so make sure its good there or that will cost you as im finding out.
    but like most will say on here just have a good look around it and a good drive you should be fine but thats not to say some thing will not go wrong with it as its a car also if you can strech it have a look at a sports and a drive before you buy an se seem to be nicer.

    I have read recently that the aircon can be a problem, just an issue inside the car with the cold air or just something to do with the mode etc. but thanks for replying mate. will keep searching, should seeing some this weekend!

    yep strong audi diesel units go on and on, common probs as mentioned appear to be aircon issues, (as ive had) and also the abs/traction light illuminating on dashboard which is an easy fix as its mostly down to the brake pedal switch (about a tenner for the part and a 10 min job) thermostat probs also crop up from time to time, mines done 127k and drives very well , ive heard of some of these engines doing 250-295k and more if well looked after.

    Engines and drivetrains are relatively bulletproof, but off the top of my head:

    Wiper mechanism seizes
    Drain holes under battery block and flood footwell
    Rear wiper (avant) fails when washer pipe splits
    Rear number plate lights bulb holders rust
    Thermostat/temp sensor can fail
    Glovebox hinges/catch's weak
    Peeling lacquer
    Interior door trim easily damaged/chipped
    Speaker/elec window wires in doors can break
    Aircon general efficiency

    I'm sure there's more, but none of those should put you off the right car as they're all minor issues.
