    whats missing from my engine bay

    Been looking around the car and saw this in the engine bay, does anyone know what it is for, i hate not knowing what things are for.




    I also noticed that there is no cover over the battery should there be, and are they cheap enough from main dealers.

    I can't advise you on whats missing Steve sorry. Is your's a 1.9?

    There is indeed a cover over the battery and pollen filter, I would try Vagparts over a dealer, it looks like this:

    Cheers for the replys, it is a 1.9, it looks like a holder of some kind, funny its right next to the brake lines.
    Will try vag parts, as i need some screw covers for the engine cover as well.
    Looks like another cover is needed aswell, so much for main dealer servicing when the car comes back with parts missing.

    Funnily enough I spoke to Martyn about this cover a couple of weeks ago and he is very reluctant to post them as they always get broken in transit. Worth a call in if you are ever Swindon way? Or maybe try a dealer, but give him a call he is very helpfull.

    If I remember rightly the battery cover isn't that expensive straight from the dealer anyway. They are always breaking and not fitting ! I've seen a couple of customers cars with gaffer tape holding them on !!

    Do you have the part nos as I'd quite like to tidy my engine bay up a bit.

    I've also wondered what that "cradle" was for. Can't think of any options that might make use of it so I can only assume it's for a specific engine configuration.

    EDIT: just looked at mine again and noticed that the ABS pump sits in a similar cradle so it may be that certain engines have the ABS pump in the lower cradle nearer the headlight for some reason.

    Glad to see me snooping around under the bonnet has helped some people on hear.

    Will call around a few places this weekend to get prices, they are not that urgent as they dont really affect performance in any way.

    The '05 model year cars didn't have the battery cover for some reason. As said just go to the dealer, they're peanuts!

    There's a thread on here with the numbers. The one to go for is the RS4 cover in the left.....



    Really looks tidy then

    The correct part numbers are there for you. The dealer needs to look the covers up for a 2001-2003 car. The later cars only have a small cover on the left of the bulkhead.

    Went into Audi today and ordered a scuttle panel with battery cover, engine cover bolt caps, footrest cover and new trim strip for passenger side as i have taken the phone holder off as my phone didnt fit in it and i use the bluetooth connection anyway.
    All for just under 60 not as bad i thought it would be, plus i got free coffee and a good look around the R8 while i waited.

    mine never had anything in that spot next to the PAS reservoir either, or a battery cover.
    Mine also never had the small plastic trims that ran between the seat and the sill or a glovebox lock, yet my friends car had all of these bits and wasn't as high a spec as mine, and his was 12 months older, work that out!

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    V8E28194221C BATTERY COVER 4.30 +VAT (TO SMALL)

    The part that Audi ordered was the same one i already have, the small one above the pollen filter, they went off the vin number and this is what came up. He told me that the 04 models didnt have the full length cover but would search for the part numbers.
    I rang them with the part numbers i found on here and he confirmed that it was the same that he had found.
    Main cover 8E2 819447 01C
    Battery cover 8E2819422
    He rang today too say the cover had arrived and it was the full length one, the battery cover had to be ordered seperate, that was about 4 ish.
    From the post on here it says about a spring but the parts guy said that it slides on so watch this space as i am picking up tomorrow if i finish early enough. Spring 4B0 971998C. Hope this all helps.
    By the way i have a 1.9 tdi sport avant.

    These are the numbers for the scuttle panel and battery cover
    Main cover 8E2 819447 01C
    Battery cover 8E2819422
    I paid 5.15 for the battery cover and 12.22 for the main cover.
    As for the engine cover you will have to see your dealer for the part number, hope this helps.
