    B5 FAQ

    I feel we need one of theses.
    I found the old one done by kevint but the links don't work and I felt it was missing some items, so I propose to make another one.

    This thread is just for information gathering for now and I'll create a proper FAQ thread when we got some information up together and hopefully it can be made a sticky.


    lets get our wants and requirements in for a new FAQ.


    Off the top of my head is.
    312mm conversion.
    Facelift head light conversion.
    Oil/Inspect rest on clocks.
    service mod.
    Larger Oil filters.
    Stereo volume.
    After market stereo with rear amp
    Boost gauge.
    front control arms.
    A4 B5 Double Din, RNS-d, TMC, Full Sports Leather Heated with Leather Door Cards and Lower Door trims all for sale.

    There was a good one somewhere for putting the front into the service position - that was useful but the pics have gone now
    Especially how to remove the bumpers -that was a bit tricky first time I did it.

    I was looking for some information and found a old FAQ but most of the links don't work.
    SO time to start again.

    Lol don't know of one, but would be interesting to see if someone has done it

    Thought the new name was a little more appropriate

    I hope this is within what you intended Scott,

    It's more generic than just B5 and not ASN, but VNT TDI turbo: how to adjust actuator & cure boost problems gave a great explanation and how-to for the oil burners that has cured a fault I had since refitting the engine and turbo.

    Another non-ASN water leak from aircon drain into passenger footwell has pic of the drain from outside, which I could have done with a few weeks back

    Having recently done mine. The backs aren't tricky really, just have to use the correct rewind tool, so that it rotates as it pushes in. And watch the carrier mountings are not corroded/seized on, as I had to cut mine off.
