    just above the near side rear wheel arch. Go in through the boot, lift out the central locking pump and you should see it underneath.

    Yeap the batteries split & the acid seaps all over the pcb & fecks it right up, its one of the most common 8L issues tbh, the newer replacement is alot better, make sure you get a new nut with it aswell, as this has changed aswell & drill out a bigger hole in the fixing plate, job done.

    No need, just give audi a buzz as they will know which one & buy it new, dont buy 2nd user, take my word for it as get 2yr warranty then.
