    Hey. My petrol cap cable has recently snapped and was wondering if I could buy the part and fit myself or do I have to take it to Audi ?


    Cheers

    Petrol cap cable, there's no such thing or do you mean the red plastic part incase of emergency open needed, as the lock for petrol cap cover uses a solenoid locking bar.

    I think he means the rubber cable that holds the petrol cap to the car when opened to fill with petrol. If you get me.

    Oh of course lol, sorry always thinking technical, sometimes the basic things slip lol, in that case you have to buy it with the cap & its about £20.
