    The rs4 washer cover fits with a little trimming! Will check the part number on my A/C cover later if i remember.
    Note: it just sits in place as there's no fixings for the A/C cover (well not on mine anyway, been there over a yr without any trouble)

    Just picked mine up this morning.

    I hadn't for a minute considered anything other than the cosmetic appeal of this - after a chat with the parts guy at Audi, there's significant purpose in getting these fitted.

    If you've fitted one, you should also check for a rubber grommet located under your battery and get it removed.

    If you've not got this panel - remove the grommet anyway and also get this part ordered up ASAP.

    Hi, well I lent my 3.0 TDI cab to my mate tonight as he is doing a journey approaching some 400 mile today (Sunday) and in return he lent me his S4 B6 Cab, so I have had a look under the bonnet and he has the washer bottle cover, so tomorrow when he returns with my car tomorrow I will take his cover off and attempt at fitting it to my car to get some idea of how well it fits
    If you could post the pt. no. of the A/C cover it would be appreciated bud.

    Hi, I'm new to this so please be patient.. I have a similar problem to the ones iv seen in these posts (see photo). I have contacted Audi about this & have been told there was never a part made for my model? My model is Audi A4 Avant 170bhp special edition, registration 2008 (old shape) not the new shape... But having seen a lot of posts on here that may not be the case? Can anyone help.. Thanks

    Follow this Mate....this is all you need to know. My understanding is that they don't show up as VAG parts on the dealers parts system, as such for our models....but the parts are there, and use the codes of this Blog Audi A4 Engine Cover Kit Install | Audiction.com
    Cheers

    I'm afraid you've fallen victim to the spectacularly bad and unhelpful attitude that too often prevails in the part departments of Audi dealers. If it wasn't fitted at the factory, they will tell you til they are blue in the face that the part doesn't exist for your car. It does, and with the help of this forum, you can identify the part number you need, and then just order it and ignore them when they say it won't fit. Bertter still, check out your nearest branch of Trade Part Specialists. With a bit of luck, it'll be one that is happy to sell to the public and you can save money too by cutting out the dealer markup.

    how odd!!

    I just checked my b7 2008 Cab and it has one already fitted, the whole tray and covers and it looks pretty
    grubby ie it's been there a while !!

    Was about to order a cover and decided to check the drain holes only to find it had a cover already?
