    i only have one key for my audi ! do i have to go through audi for a new one or can i buy one off ebay etc ?

    i need a cv joint replaced ,this is on order and should be here in a few days. any hidden problem's awaiting me when i fit this ?

    the car has had a replacement abs pump at some point and consequently the brakes are very spongey is there any hidden tips or special equipment needed to bleed these brakes or is it just as straight forward as it looks ?

    many thanks

    If your car has ABS only then to bleed the brakes is easy. I can send you the procedure if you pm me with an email address car year engine/gearbox code if you have ESP then its harder as you're supposed to operate the pump during the bleed process to ensure fresh hydraulic fluid cycles through it.

    You need to hook it up to the Audi diagnostics or vagcom might be able to do the same thing. you should post this question on the vagcom forum and see if they can help

    the cv boot you need a special tool to do the job have you got it ?

    as for a key i bought a blank one off ebay and vw cut it for me free of charge then its just a case of getting audi to program it to the car
