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)

    [​IMG]

    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! :icon_thumright:

    you can get a 3 piece kit for your engine bay, it looks really smart, not too pricey aswell lad

    The B7's never had the covers but the B6's did. I stole mine off my dads B6 before he sold it :)

    ^^^ 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!

    As anyone got any pictures of the various covers? I've got the battery cover and the cover that goes over the washer bottle, wasn't aware there was more.

    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.

    Mine didn't have one, but one of our cars (B7 Cab) came in after being written off in a rear ender, and it had one, so now my car has one :)

    Mine doesn't have one, but I'm going to get one. But who knows whether it did as standard, it's 10 years old nearly now :)
