    Continuous Parking Brake Fault - replaced many times

    Yeah I mean the parking brake. Fault code is 0486 from memory... not got the paperwork with me at the min. But basically in the last year, both calipers have now been replaced - twice.

    Continuous Parking Brake Fault - replaced many times

    Hi there, hopefully someone here can shed some light on this annoying issue I have with my parking brake. Last year, I got a warning on the dash about faulty parking sensor. The garage scanned and confirmed the fault, replaced the rear caliper on the drivers side.. Then 3 weeks later, fault...

    Standard 18" wheel size for A3 is: 225/40R18 92V 8Jx18 ET46 5x112 Apart from the tyre size, I have no idea what the rest means :) I have seen some wheels I like but the size are: 5x100 ET35 They are advertised as a fit for audis, but what does the different measurements mean to me? For what...

    BP Ulimate Diesel - is it worth it? 110k mileage

    Yeah I'm thinking that I'll just go back to standard fuel, but this time go for the more premium stations such as BP or Shell (they're only a few pence more than the supermarkets anyway). I was really hoping for a difference... I used to get an extra 60 miles to a full tank when using VPower on...

    BP Ulimate Diesel - is it worth it? 110k mileage

    Only just recently I have started to fill the tank with Ultimate Diesel, however I am a little disappointed so far as after 4 fills, I am getting less MPG than before on the cheap supermarket fuel :( It is costing me around and extra £15 for a full tank too. But is my 110k mileage A3...

    AUX Socket Cradle part number needed (pic inside)

    Thanks to the help of someone on here, I now know what I need to install an AUX input into my RNS-E MKII. However, I now need to find the cradle that allows me to fit the actual AUX socket into place - looks like the same piece that holds the ciggy socket. Has anyone got one of these installed...

    RNS-E MKII - I need to add an AUX input

    AMI is too expensive for what I need. Just a simple audio connection from my phone to the unit is all :) Surely someone has done this and has the info I need? Cheers

    RNS-E MKII - I need to add an AUX input

    What's the best way of me adding an AUX input to my RNS-E MKII unit? I'd much rather stream music to my iphone these days rather than keep messing about with SD cards, but need a simple AUX input to send the audio to the head unit. Cheers :)

    Symptoms of a failing flywheel?

    Midland VW gave an estimate of around £600 - not sure of what brand flywheel they were sourcing.

    Symptoms of a failing flywheel?

    Quick update... spoke to the technician who worked on my car last Sat and he said that you can hear a slight rattle coming from the flywheel when turning the engine off, just as it cutting out. He said that this is the very early signs so nothing to worry about for a while yet, but worth keeping...

    Symptoms of a failing flywheel?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I checked last night from cold with it in P and could not hear any rattles at all. Did not try in N though, so will check that later too and will report back. The technician reported this while he was doing a remap, so he definitely didn't find the issue by...

    Symptoms of a failing flywheel?

    Can't say I've heard any rattles TBH, however I've never listened for any. I will have a proper check tonight to hear anything. If I can't hear any rattles, would there be anything to look out for?

    Symptoms of a failing flywheel?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I should of said that I have a DSG gearbox, so no chance of feeling anything through a clutch peddle. I can't say that I've noticed any significant knocking or rattling either - would the symptoms be different for the DSG box? Cheers
