    Unhappy HOW TO - I DONT KNOW?

    PLEASE HELP

    The first question i hope is straight forward i have a 2001 a4 avant quattro sport 180 engine no AKE

    im told by audi there are 2 temp senders, 1 for the ecu (green with 4 wires on) which i have changed and 1 for the temp guage(poss black 2 wires on) where is the location of the 2 wire sender and how to access it would be appreciated. reason is temp guage is reading low and occasionaly stops working so need to change sender first

    my other question is how the dickens do you remove the boot door linings to access rear of number plate lights- ive tried removing the 2 bolts behind the warning triangle and the two in the grab handles but it is still fixed somehow- anyone know how it is done?

    With reference to your second question, I have never done it but have seen questions on it. I think after those fixings are out it's just held in by 'clips'. It just requires a good firm but gentle pull and it should come free, but as I say I can't actually speak from experience ....

    i was always under the impression that the green temp sensor 4 pin sent info to both the ecu and the gauge ? there is one similar black sensor its in the bottom radiator hose but i think this one is for the electric cooling fan every time i have had a temp gauge problem i have only ever changed the green one

    Just the four screws and pull really hard all that holds it on are sping clips that are really strong. I used a plastic wedge so i could get my fingers under the trim then pulled like hell.
