    Hi Simon, I had the same problem with my A6, it turned out that the headlight washer motor was leaking (cracked due to high presure).

    Its a relatively easy job removing the bottle, remove near side road wheel, remove wheel arch trim then there is 1 bolt in the engine bay and I think another one within the wheel arch.

    thanks Ian

    its not the washer pump though, the bottle has actually split.

    I emailed everyone breaking an A6 on ebay yesterday and got 3 offers

    managed to pick one up for £28 delivered



    thanks

    good news, changing the bottle isnt too much bother. Just wish there was a haynes manual for our cars, (cant beat a printed book.)

    Have a good xmas.

    There are 3 bolts. One in the engine bay and 2 in the wheel arch. Just had to remove mine to be able to get the ABS module out

    put some beer in it!!! lol
    na but me thinks this is a factory default with all these audi's they have so many damn sensors. U fix one then another one goes!!! my one does the same but I cannot trace the leak. I will probably check the headlight washers. how difficult is it to remove the bumber?
