    Retrofit Rear View Camera to Audi A4 2017 B9

    I’m sorry the instructions I’ve got are a combination of the copyrighted k-electronic instructions and lots of emails with their tech support. If you’ve not already bought the loom you could get it from k-electronic (or Kauftec etc) and get the instructions for a diesel saloon and their...

    Retrofit Rear View Camera to Audi A4 2017 B9

    I fitted mine using the k-electronic loom and coding dongle. It was not straight forward, the instructions didn’t quite work - the pins you had to connect too were different on a RHD car to the LHD instructions. Also I thought I’d be able to code it using my VCDS but I could not do the camera...

    What did you & your B9 do today?

    Assuming the loom has the same connections as mine you need to connect the following: Parking Brake connector: - Solder Grey to the cable in Pin 5 - Solder Brown to the cable in Pin 6 There are two 73 pin connectors in the passenger footwell - just above the fuses. 73A is nearest the rear -...

    Traffic Sign Recognition Coded!

    No the MMI remains based on the mapping data; the DIS is based on the camera. I’m not sure if this is how it works on the factory coded cars but I like having both. I can interpret based on my understanding of the road.

    Traffic Sign Recognition Coded!

    I did my non-VC version last night and I’ve tried it breifly this morning. Speed limits from the signs are displayed in the DIS. The MMI still shows the speedlimits from the mapping data. The only odd thing I have noticed is it has picked up a couple of non existent 20 zones. Hopefully...

    Replacement Tyre - Questions

    I'm surprised they fitted different makes on the same axle. It would not be legal if you take the car to France.

    Retro fit of Rear View Camera

    Mine was from k-electronic. A bit cheaper although the weak £ has not helped. https://www.k-electronic-shop.de/AUDI/AUDI-A4/AUDI-A4-B9-8W/AUDI-A4-B9-8W-Rueckfahrkamera---Rear-View-Nachruestpaket.html

    Retro fit of Rear View Camera

    Running the loom was relatively straight forward: Removed the boot trim to fit the camera and to run the cables to the LHS compartment where I picked up the earth and power; Ran the loom up the C pillar to get into the passenger compartment; Ran one section to the controller under the rear...

    Inspection Service Schedule

    I did it with a siphonic oil extractor - via the tube that would have the dip stick. The filter is done from the top too. The hardest thing was finding the right oil - Castrol Edge Professional LL IV FE 0W-20 VW 508 00 / 509 00. I bought mine from a German website.

    Inspection Service Schedule

    Mine in on Long Life but I changed the oil and filter last weekend as a interim. Straight forward but it takes about 5.5 litres.
