    How accurate is the Speedo

    The other question is how accurate are the third party nav units & phones. They will also have a margin of error and not be 100% correct.

    Hibiscus Red TQS - New Car, New Project, cars been here before though.

    Think I would start with the sensor first. If that is not working then I would be looking at temporary wiring bypass to see if that cures the problem as from the looks of your pressures you don't have a problem. Have you at any point remove the hole oil filter bracket assembly and given it a...

    Well this time last year I was reading other people threads, and what with lockdown it finally gave me the kick up the backside to start the work again. :whip: Option 2 wheels were the ones I purchased for the car 21 years ago, so I think I'm going to stick with them.

    Next problem was the throttle cable bracket. For the life of me I could not find the original bracket off the car. I had shelves in my workshop with all the stripped off parts of the car and a fair few were missing, cannot believe it that rusty that I would have binned it so the only option was...

    All of my orders were placed before Brexit! It's annoying to know we can no longer get parts from them. Quote from the front page of their website. Fing Brexit... The gift that keeps on giving. I've also noticed that that some of the parts I was looking for on ebay have also gone up in price.

    So I have a choice to make on the wheels that are going on the car. From factory the car came with 15" steel rims with trim covers, and the first owner of the car changed then for a set of 15" wolfrace alloys that looked awful and fitting a set of factory 16" wheels was the first mod I made to...

    While I was waiting on a replacement viscus fan, and power steering pump. I started working on the slam panel. The original was was in good condition but had plenty of rust on the rivet nuts, and on a couple nuts the screw thread was snapped off and left in the nut. Only way to remove the old...

    My A6 3.0TDi Avant bit of a rebuild and repair thread.

    Cannot advise any further on using the harness from another car, it's not something I've ever done before I found it easer to either make my own harnesses or just buy one if they are cheap enough. Unknown on the modules it's all depends on how they are coded and some functions including power...

    My A6 3.0TDi Avant bit of a rebuild and repair thread.

    The Kufatec harness is the quick and easy solution, if you have the time and access to elsawin or erwin then you could make your own but will just take time. No sorry don't have the manual anymore it was 6 years ago I did the install and deleted the C6 docs I had.

    I used the words sealed which was a bad choice of words as audi filters are just stored in a cardboard box so air and moisture can get in. Had a look inside the filter and it's clean and the element looks OK, but to be fair most of its hidden behind the metal filter body.
