    Hi guys, have 3 things I would like to have a crack at before I get S3 back on the road in november.

    1. Windscreen Washer fluid leaks out - How to remove washer bottle to replace if cracked?

    2. I believe there is a sort of partical catcher for the sump to keep the turbo from getting starved, if so should I renew & how?

    3. Lastly the rubber surround to my roof aerial is perished, do I need a whole new aerial & how to get at it to remove?

    Thanks for any advice on any of these jobs, much appreciated.

    Steve

    Through wheel arch liner.
    Take of sump off and clean the strainer.
    Access for aerial is from under roof liner. Stick it back on with a slither of silicone or make your own new seal.

    TBH if your asking simple questions like this,:think: get someone with a higher car diy skill set to sort it.

    Very straight forward stuff to do so go and get your hands dirty. That way you'll learn more about your car and how stuff is put together.
