    A4 Avant B9 - Audi Dog Guard - Partition net.

    That’s not a dog guard. It’s a net divider to stop your load sliding forward when braking if stacked high. You can buy an optionally metal dog grille/guard to replace that about £100 from memory if required

    How many passes, confusion ? Flex XCE forced rotation but not specific to that machine.

    Pressure washer or not?

    I’ve had a Nilfisk for several years now & wouldn’t go back to Karcher as I found them unreliable. When rinsing of the snow foam I keep the lance at an angle to the bodywork so to blast off & not into the paint work.

    Detailing advice for a black, very contaminated car and an inexperienced owner!

    Driver side disc scored

    Some years ago I heard of a manufacturer making pads with a sacrificial abrasive layer that polished the disc and wore off.

    First sign that battery needs replacing?

    You could try SC Motor factors at Ruxley you get a fresher battery from a wholesaler that hasn’t been sitting on a shelf for so long. I think there prices are competitive.
