    Hi Simon, I had the same problem with my A6, it turned out that the headlight washer motor was leaking (cracked due to high presure).

    Its a relatively easy job removing the bottle, remove near side road wheel, remove wheel arch trim then there is 1 bolt in the engine bay and I think another one within the wheel arch.

    thanks Ian

    its not the washer pump though, the bottle has actually split.

    I emailed everyone breaking an A6 on ebay yesterday and got 3 offers

    managed to pick one up for 28 delivered



    thanks

    Simon

    good news, changing the bottle isnt too much bother. Just wish there was a haynes manual for our cars, (cant beat a printed book.)

    Have a good xmas.

    There are 3 bolts. One in the engine bay and 2 in the wheel arch. Just had to remove mine to be able to get the ABS module out

    washer bottle!!

    put some beer in it!!! lol
    na but me thinks this is a factory default with all these audi's they have so many damn sensors. U fix one then another one goes!!! my one does the same but I cannot trace the leak. I will probably check the headlight washers. how difficult is it to remove the bumber?
