    Fuse box help

    So my situation has changed and has meant I've had to upgrade my towbar electrics to 13pin ( which i should have done originally but there we go!). I've got another dedicated kit which is spot on, the issue i have is where the wiring meets the fuse box to power everything up. There an ignition...

    Cold start knock 2.0tfsi

    There's always been a little bit of chain rattle on start up, but apparently thats normal on our engines anyway. Im currently on 129k so we're deep into parts wearing out territory! Also if it was the chain/tensioner, i would have thought it would be knocking all the time. I only occasionally...

    Cold start knock 2.0tfsi

    Hi Rob, thanks for your reply. Nope been a busy bee behind the scenes and not had much time for either the forum or the car to be honest but thought I'd best look into this issue! Just found an old post actually suggest the vacc pump, then the timing chain. Hopefully its nothing major or...

    Cold start knock 2.0tfsi

    A few month back i was greeted with a knock at idle when i started the car one morning. It only happens when to engine is cold and soon goes away, if it does it at all that is. It only does it at idle and stops if you rev the engine, but starts again when returning to idle. It seems to be an...

    I fitted a connects 2 kit to my old symphony unit. It was plug and play and didn't require coding if i remember correctly. You just pressed twice to get the aux input working

    Scuttle Cover Confusion!

    Yours looks different to mine, the ecu cover makes up the missing part in my case, hence the cut out section in the scuttle cover

    How is the car lowered? Is it using coil overs or lowering springs?

    Help with A4 B7 Suspension

    You will normally find that the n/s tyre will wear faster due to roundabouts, however it shouldn't be a significant amount more. I suffered from the inner edges wearing on my avant prior to lowering it and still after fitting the springs. I've since cured it by fitting a complete new control...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Hey to each his own, or what ever the saying is Ricky! Its not for me personally. I park on a busy road at work and the whole nearside and front and rear are getting caked in salt and dirt through the day which makes visibility a pain at the minute, so getting the wiper back make things a little...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Thought id replace the clutch switch again as i thought the non gen one i fitted 2or 3 years ago was acting up. I ordered and fitted a genuine replacement from tps, only to find it made the car 10x worse. Rung TPS to get it exchanged as it must be a faulty part and they want me to take it to a...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Cheers fella, i was thinking of going yellow but went for an Audi ceramic theme instead with similar style decals. I will taking them back off at some point in the future and getting them professionally refurbed i think. The powdercoating job was a bit poor and is chipping and i have a weepy n/s...
