    new to Audi A4 cab and small issues

    guys
    i got my A4 cab 1.8T S line spec B6 and im excited (pics coming trmw hopefully) ok a couple of things i need help with:

    1) I cant seem to find the alloy wheel lock - are these expensive to get or am i scrwd without it?

    2) Also, i noticed it doesnt have s line door sills - dont they come as standard? are these easy to get hold of?

    3) I cant seem to find the key for the manual hood operation?

    thats all for now i think.

    thanks

    1 if you cant find it you will have to pay to have them removed and buy new ones

    2 the b6 is a sport the b7 s-line and they dont come with s-line sill plates

    3 open the drivers door remove the cover and the roof key should be in there you cant miss it
    if its missing expect to pay £40/£80 sh on the bay

    From memory about 3 years ago I last removed my grill it's just something like 4 or 6 Torx screws which are very easily accessible. A doddle to remove and replace really.

    Hi Sublime,
    The locking wheel nut key is in the tool kit inside the spare wheel, rear tail light bulb you have to remove the entire light by loosening the two screws at the back of the light and and sliding the unit out, and finally the grill is a few torx bits along the top of the grill and lift out if I remember.

    Love the interior, had the same on my old 05 s line, which incidentally didn't have s line sill plates either!

    rear tail light dead easy. Open boot, locate plastic stopper (about 5cm in diameter) and twist off. Inside you'll see a normal Phillips screw, unscrew it but be careful you don't drop it! Once screw is removed, stand and hold the light unit with a hand at each side of it. The light unit removes sideways on a plastic ball and socket arrangement, so give it a hearty tap with the flat of your right hand sideways to the outside of the car. Should just come away freely. Then just unscrew whichever bulb is out and replace with the correct one, and slide back in revers of how it came out.

    When I replaced mine, I just took the bulb to the local motor factor and got a replacement, miles cheaper than halfords!

    I am not at all mechanically minded and it took me 5 minutes max

    Yes plastic cap is just behind the light, different to the saloon. You honestly can't go wrong

    next gota remove the grille to put the sline badge. Ive noticed some condensation on the front passenger side headlight - reading up on it need to replace the O ring - prob do this when I 'try' to fit the hid kit.

    thanks guys for all your help
