    Hello
    I have just changed my water temp sensor on my car, I have disconnected the battery,but that didn't clear the dash warning light.
    Audi want to charge me £75 for half an hours labour to clear it !!!!!!!!!!

    Look in the vagcom section for a member in your area to clear the light for you

    You may find that the fault indication clears itself after a few starts of the car. I had a similar issue when I disconnected the MAF on my car to replace the headlamp buld as this brought up a fault.

    Failing that just about any garage with the right kit should be able to clear it a lot cheaper than £75, i know my local garage charges £25 for a full scan of faults, a print out of the faults and reseting of any fault indications that are no longer valid.
