    As a new member to this forum (albeit a longstanding Audi/VAG owner since 1978 and A2OC forum member amongst others) the location suits me perfectly given I live about 15 mins drive away! However I can see the argument from those who might live t'other side of Leeds or Cleckhuddersfax or even darkest deepest Hull that it is a bit of a trek. I hope to get along to the May meet and put some faces to names on here.

    My humble apologies, My car is without direction following a complete steering rack failure on N/S off rack. This occurred mid point on a tightening 90 degree corner to the right. Speed roughly 50mph in a 60 limit although the road was narrow and twisting. The car refused to continuo on the direction of my input and straitened up. Big boot to brake peddle stopped with no incidence. It did take me over 1.5 hours to drive 2 miles home. V8 coupled with the suspension setup and 255/35/19 tires and no power steering. I'm waiting on my steering racks return from full strip and rebuild.

    Failure down to previous owner using ATF (red) not the green specified by audi thus rotting seals. Sorry folks for not being there.

    Despite the cold and rain, I received a warm welcome - thanks for that guys.

    I'd like to thank Brandon for taking a ride and helping me identify some issues with the car. It's currently with Votex in Congleton, Cheshire having a few things sorted. Turns out the whining noise was the rear differential/haldex which is getting replaced, it also needs new rear springs and roll bars which are getting done at the same time as the diff. The dump valve which the previous owner had fitted is getting taken off and being replaced with an OEM one which i'm assured is perfectly good.

    It's never nice to find out you have been fed a load of bull**** and inherited someone else's problem, but i'm glad I found out what the issue was before anything went bang at 80mph with my family in the car. I can't recommend Votex enough, it's a good 90 minute drive from Yorkshire but i'll be taking my cars there in future.

    Always welcome buddy!

    It was actually Brandon who couldn't wait to go for a drive with you....I'm the one with the Grey S3 :)

    Glad we could help you identify your issues, we are all about helping our members out. Hope it isn't too costly! It will drive alot better once all those are fitted and you will be happy in the knowledge that it's ok....the childish grin will return.

    Hope to see you at a few more meets and shows, we are a good bunch really!

    Shaun.

    And it was good to meet you.

    Hope it doesn't turn out to be a huge bill, but like Shaun said it will drive alot better.

    Ah not too far from me then! I'll make sure I make it then :) look forward to meeting the lads!

    Quick question, anyone experienced plastidip? Used it last weekend and I couldn't think of a bad word to say about it, but on Thursday walked out from work and it all pealed off :( did wash the car 24 hours after spraying it, anyone that's used it think it might've been washed a bit too soon?

    The last time I got an airbag passenger side code it was the connecter behind the glovebox. Unplugged, blew in it and replugged in.....cleared codes and its been fine since.
