Have been trying to sort out a few problems with my AEB B5 2001 A4 Avant (1.8SE) (just gone over 100k miles) - Have cleared the SRS light, but that's another story!
Anyhoo, aircon hasn't really ever blown cold air and we're going to driving through France in July/August and I want to get it sorted! It has been gassed not long ago and I'm pretty happy that it's not a problem. Also the ECON light comes on and off with the switch as it should do.
I have run the codes on the unit using the recirculate & up arrow, and whilst C1 has returned a 0, I have a number of errors on the following: -
C32 - 219
C33 - 178
C34 - 37
C35 - 24
According the lists, these are respectively, temp flap, A/c flap, Fuss/Def flap and ram air flaps.
Question is - where do I find all of these to clean? Is this likely to help or maybe indicative of another problem?
The aircon pump was changed 2 years ago - not sure if any of the other components were changed.
Any advice/pointers gratefully received!
The other issue I think is either exhaust or engine mount related. I had to replace the downpipe & CAT prior to the MOT. The type I have has the flexipipe, CAT and EGT sensor all in the same piece. I replaced this using a new proper sleeve, but since then, I get a vibration/knocking when turning left - particularly on roundabouts. It's definitely exhaust banging and and nothing else. Just wondering if it's something I've missed on refitting that section of exhaust (rest of system was left in place) or if I have engine/gearbox mounts that are on their way out.
Right, over you lot who know! Thanks in advance.
