    Retrofitted rs4 push button to my car. (I know it's not to everyone's taste but I like it). Now the button has failed a couple of months down the line and tps say Audi need to diagnose it. They want more for diagnosis than a new button costs! Don't really know what to do. The button seems to have lost its click

    Difficult one mate, but £115 gets it fixed and covered under warranty by Audi for how long?

    With retroffited parts I wouldn't go near an Audi dealer, they will say it's nothing to do with the switch and it a problem with the retrofit, it shouldn't be on the car bla bla bla, now pay us £110 for being smug and sanctimonious........

    Don't you work at a garage???
    Have it apart and look yourself, sounds like something's broken inside. You have nothing to lose really.
    Isn't it a no brainier with this one, a new one for £62, or your old one with less warranty at nearly double the price???

    Yes I do work in a garage and have stripped it to check. It's annoying that there is no warranty on the part. I have kicked off with my local tps and am awaiting a response but its looking hopeful they may come to the party and cover it :)
