Since I bought my audi B6 convertible 1.8T I have had nothing but problems with it.
As in my previous post, I have had the hazards flashing on/off while driving and stops me locking the doors with fob until i use the key in the lock. I was advised it was my comfort module which I didnt bother checking because it was an intermittent problem.
So today, I unlocked my car with the fob, and the glovebox started making a griding noise, like when a cog is stuck and the other is spinning round it.
It was making an absolute racket so I quickly disconnected the battery of the car.
The glovebox was stuck shut, so i used the key to unlock it and it opened. put battery back on and same noise again, so i popped off the side cover and disconnected and reconnected it etc. So I left the battery disconnected while I fitted my new rocker cover seal which is what i was going to do anyway.
The cars battery was flat too by the way, because my hazards were flashing all night.
The boot had popped open itself too a couple of times while I was diagnosing.
The windows were slightly down (2cm down)
When I reconnected my battery and jump started the car, I couldnt move my windows at all.
I decided to go and check out the comfort module, so I removed the passenger seat, lifted the carpet and woooooaaaahhh a HUGE puddle of water - how did that get there??? and it was DEEEEEP too! Of course the comfort module was submersed in the pool. No wonder I had all these problems.
I took the module out and opened it all up to the circuit board and it looks toast to me!! the circuit boards all corroded like hell, I dont even know how any of its functions were working at all before!!
I also pierced some holes in the plastic drain plugs at the bottom to let the water out. But the water kept gathering in there under the carpet.
Where was the water coming from?
I took the scuttle panel off from the bulkhead and looked around the pollen filter housing, which is an absolute joke - German engineering and this thing is so flimsy - this must be where my water is coming in from?
Opinions needed please with regards to where water is coming from
What is the best way to seal this pollen filter housing to stop the water getting in from again?
Do you think theres any damage to my glovebox mechanism?
Where can I get a new comfort module from? Preferably I dont want to spend a fortune on a brand new factory one!
My part number is 8H0959433D
Theres one on ebay which is 8H0959433M?
I have had to put a plastic cover over my car until I can get this sorted as my windows dont go up now either!
This is devestating to me. I have already had so many issues with the car already I am thinking I shouldve stayed jap
