    you can check etka before, or just go to parts at audi and they will look through etka for you and give you the correct one for your version of the 1.8t

    Sounds like yours is nDBW. If you disconnect the battery before you remove the throttle body for cleaning, the TPS will automatically go through the adaptation when the battery's re-connected. Just make sure you don't try to start the car before it's finished fannying about.

    You shouldnt loose the radio code. Audi code the radios to the car apparently. I recently dissconnected the battery and didnt loos the code. Audi used to retreive the codes for free but I think they may have started charging for the service.
