Just bought 1999 B5 2.4 V6 - Some Questions!
Firstly Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum but hoping to be spending some quality time here as I've just bought a V plate 2.4 V6 SE in Jasper Green.
In the past I've been a big part of the Corrado forum and the Briskoda forum but I recently sold by 56 plate 260bhp Octavia to raise cash for a new business :icon_thumright:
The A4 has done 76K and the first owner had it for 9 years from new but then it was sold to the second owner last year who basically didnt look after it much and so it needs a good clay bar session some new door trims and a few other odds and sods but its a nice clean car overall.
I'll get some pics up when I get chance.
- When changing gear in the morning (cold in Newcastle) the box is notchy but eases up after 5 mins. Anyone recomend changing the gearbox oil or adjusting the linkage?
- When releasing the clutch in first to change to second I often get a jerk from the drivetrain (clutch bite is high) like I'm learning to drive again. is this normal? feels like a knackered engine mount?
- I'm going to do a service myself this week, oil, oil filter, plugs, air filter. Is there any other recomeded part I should change (fuel filter for example)
- Any members out here in the North East? meets etc?
