    My motor is nearly due a service. It's going to be around a 48K service and I wanted to know if there would be a defined list of items involved in it's service?

    I'm eager to find out which dealer knows what the service involves so I can compare prices whilst knowing they are all going to be doing the same jobs.

    For example when does it need coolant flush, brake fluid flush, does it have cam belt or chain and when does this need replacing or tensioning...etc.

    Another question..... Do I have to take it to an Audi dealer to keep up my warranty?

    My motor is: A4, 2002, 2.5TDi sport 180, Quattro, tiptronic.

    Thanks

    I have an autodata cd that has the (supposedly correct) checklists, I'll see if I can export the data. It's at home, so I'll have it by tomorrow.

    If they refuse to honour their warranty then they are in breach of anti-competition legislation. So it shouldn't matter. But they might make your life hard if you tried to claim ie you might have to prove the work was done correctly.

    You have to use genuine parts and they will take longer to sort out your claim due to checking the work was done correctly in the first place. But they would have to honour it or prove an incompetent service caused the fault.

    Brilliant, thanks for putting this up for me.....and I guess loads of other people too.

    If this is what is done at Audi then it's way more than any independant has said they would do. I'll stick with Audi.
