    Battery cover or not? Do you have one running along the back of your engine bay?

    Hi all.

    2 months ago I bought a 07 reg (B7) A4 3.0 tdi

    I have a question i'm sure someone on here can answer. I recently changed my battery and noticed that there is no cover running along the back of the engine bay, which means rainwater runs straight onto the battery (see pic below, not of my car but the same)



    On the internet I notice other cars with a cover (like below). Should there be one? I find it odd that the rainwater from the screen runs through the vent onto the battery.

    Any help appreciated!

    ^^^ like he said!
    most B7"s did not get these but the B6 did, another part of cost cutting by audi,
    they do look smart though and a shame are not standard equipment!
    like others have stated there cheap and easy enough to get hold of.
    i haven"t bothered, but might in the future!

    I asked Stoke Audi about the engine cover parts a while back:
    Quote for Engine Bay cover kit

    I got the part numbers from a file attached to the old Group Buy.

    Its around £80 delivered for a full engine cover set.

    Standard - the battery cover was broken when I went to collect it new, so the dealer opened the bonnet of another B7 on their forecourt and swapped it onto my car.

    Ok thanks, looks like I'll have to join the VW forum to look at it. Looking like I just need the one that covers the Air Con pipes up.

    That's not right - they were fitted on my B6 1.9 TDi 130 Sport.
