    Oil leak clean up

    Hi, So a seal went on a long drive on the weekend which led to a lot of oil dripping down and then splattering on the whole underside of the car as it was during a motorway drive. I have washed the car today as it went everywhere, but it needs another wash as it all didn't come off. What is...

    A4 S Sline 2015 Xenon Headlight

    Cheers, so I gambled on the bulb, went with Osram, got 2 for £112 and a local bodyshop where I was working that week to fit them as I thought it was a body work job not a mechanical. Worked a treat, £40 for labour and was done in a few hours. The most expensive bulb change I have ever had though...

I have tried using a bug sponge, vinegar and...

    Cambelt change and warranty

    Hi, So Audi sent me an email saying my cambelt on my 2015 1.4t A3 saloon last month, the new rules are every 5 years now officially. With saying that and Audi currently closed and only a few garages around open, which not all I would trust, the car is in warranty until 14th June and wondering...

    Who can I send an Audi complaint to?

    So, I have had success. Very impressed with the reply time. I had a call from someone who took my case from Audi Executive Office in Milton Keynes. I went through verbally what I said in my 2-page complaint letter about my Audi purchase and even after it was fixed in October they took it...

    Who can I send an Audi complaint to?

    Curb damage (camber and tracking)

    It was a free check, only costs to adjust the tracking. I was miles away from home and they ran out of time with the car so as it was safe to drive back, I am now revisiting my options :-)

    Curb damage (camber and tracking)

    Hi, I managed to run over a curb last week causing un repairable damage to both driver's side tyres, which have been repalced. Both alloys have small comestic damage which I have put on the back burner for now. But I had the car put on a wheel alignment system while the tyres were done and I...

    Gear stick knock on releasing from park A5 2.0 Tdi CVT

    Hi, Yesterday when I pressed the brake to come out out park into drive on my 2012 CVT auto box A5, there now is a clunk which you can hear and feel through the gear stick. It only happens when you're stationary and you're coming from a P, N or R selection into D and back. Once you drive off...

    A5 knock / creek

    Thanks for the replies both. Ill have a look at both points over the weekend and then to a garage if I can't see any easy faults. After further driving it seems to just happen when the car is under load and accelerating from a slow speed that this creek / ache noise is apparent. There is no...
