    right i could do with a few bits of help please guys, i have an a4 quattro sport 1.8t estate.
    need help with the following
    • rear washer dosnt work, it pumps water into passenger foot well. is there a join near there or could it be a split?
    • the boot you have to slam quite hard. the lip of boot lid rubs on the bumper. any ideas? could i adjust the hinges?
    • in the engine bay, i have noticed 2 fans on the rad. 1 constant and 1 electric, the engine dosnt seen to get very hot, is this because of the constant fan?or does the system need bleeding for air?
    • and any quick or easy fixs for the computer display in the clocks.? the top section works ok which shows abs fuel warnings ect. but the bottom section has lots of line through it, does it display mpg?
    • oh and abs light is on. any ideas.

    cheers in advance

    If your ABS light is on it is most likely an ABS sensor that has gone, My MK 4 golf went through quite a few of these, The best way to check is to run VAGCOM on your car, I was able to clear the errors to get it through its MOT but ended up changing the sensor in the end.

    Again, with the passanger footwell problem, i ended up changing my door seal as thats what was causing my leak but audi may be different, i am new to audi but im sure someone on here will be able to help you.

    I hope this helps for now

    Pic looks like you have a B5 Avant, you might get some more advise over in the B5 section ( ScottB5 would be the man to ask!)

    Temp should sit about 90 degrees, so change your thermostat for a new one, look on the vagcom section and see if there is any body local to you who may be able to scan the car and locate which abs sensor is at fault, pretty sure the estate does feed it's washer that side, but also check your scuttle drain are clear too
