Guys; My A4 Avant is slammed; Since Ive been driving it in the foot deep snow I have managed to snap one of the rear cooling flaps; reversing into deep snow. The car performed fine but I think its days are numbered and will need replacing. Now it hangs down to the rear. I jacked it up and cut the problematic bit off however this is a temp fix. Now can i just remove it; it looks to me to be connected to the front arches? Or should I replace it. Anyone know how much they are - being audi it will be like £200 notes I bet. What are the risks of ditching it. Just Dirt? My Mk4 GTI Anniversary had this issue also up in County Durham the snow where I live it like a foot deep! I ended up removing it but it was easier that the A4's to remove completely..... Apart from that she's great in the snow. Cheers Mark.
