    Hello guys, I'll post a link to a photo before I tell you my problem so you have an idea of what I'm talking about

    When I first got the Audi, I remember that the control on the drivers side would also set the temp for the passengers side. So if I set the drivers side to 25° then the numbers on both sides would move to 25°. These days it doesn't seem to do it - I've played around with the buttons but haven't had any luck.

    Any ideas how I can change it back, so both sides can be controlled by just the dirvers side? or is this an error that will need to be fixed by a garage?

    Thanks

    Just press and hold the AUTO button for a few seconds and it re syncs the buttons - so that the drivers side bitton moves the temp on the passenger side.

    You'll need to do this everytime a passenger moves their temperature up or down to a different temp to the driver as it puts it into independent zones each time.

    I had the same query on mine, so I read the manual ;)

    Mrviews,

    What year and trim level is your A3? It's got a different style CC unit, as well as the buttons on the dash having a silver trim, compared to my MY2010 Sport. TBH, I prefer this look.
