    2.0 TDi EGR Valve Location

    Does anyone know how accessible the EGR valve is on 2012 Audi A5 2.0 TDi? Thinking of getting mine cleaned but wondering where it is located and how accessible in engine bay? I know some EGR are easily accessible near top of engine to side. But some are to the rear and require a bit of...

    Fan Coming On

    Hi folks - wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this. The fan has recently started to come on after I stop the car. It is a 2012 A5 Sportback Sline. I have this A5 3 years and this has never happened. Now when I drive 40km to work, stop the car, get out and lock it, the fan is staying on for...

    The next recall...

    What made you decide not to get the heater replaced?

    The next recall...

    The PDF outlining the procedure for this recall says there's a software update. Surely if you get a software update it will contain all previous updates...so I'll end up with the Emissions Scandal fix as it was purely a software update?

    The next recall...

    I just got this letter about my 2012 Audi A5 Sportback TDi. You guys sure it's 2013 on? I got several letters about the Audi Emissions scandle fix which I never went in for. After reading some people reporting it has a negative effect on performance why would you! Maybe they are just trying to...

    Alignment needed after new shocks?

    Yep. Straight replacement of existing shocks with another set of identical Audi shocks.

    Alignment needed after new shocks?

    I'm replacing the rear shocks on my 2012 Audi A5 Sportback S-line. Do I need wheel alignment after shocks are replaced?

    Brake pad wear indicator - A5 Sportback?

    Oh right, so the sensor is only on one brake out of four? Strange - you'd have though at least one read and one front, considering front and rear will wear at different rates.

    Brake pad wear indicator - A5 Sportback?

    Looking at Pagid brake pads for my model on http://www.eurocarparts.com/ I see there are pads with and without wear indicators. Hmmm...I'll be amazed if a 2012 Sline doesn't have wear indicators? I guess my model could have come with wear indicators and previous owner replaced the pads with...

    Brake Pads

    From searching over other threads :) , would I be right in thinking that Audi use Pagid pads?

    Brake Pads

    Hi guys - any idea what company makes original Audi brake pads? Direct from Audi they are a tad expensive - so I'm wondering who makes them, just buy them without the Audi stamp? Or are there other brands people recommend? I've no interest in performance pads, just normal pads will do - it's...

    Brake pad wear indicator - A5 Sportback?

    Hi folks - I have an 2012 Audi A5 Sportback S-line (19inch factory wheels). Should I have brake pad wear indicators? I assumed that my car would have indicators to tell me when brake pads were worn. But I was in with my mechanic at the weekend and he says there are none on this model?

    Fuel Door Leaking

    I just tried the tip of using the garden strimmer wire and it worked perfectly, thanks guys! To be honest, not sure I even needed the strimmer wire, it was just a piece of dirt in the plug hole. You'd wonder why they make the plug hole so small - there's hardly any negative effects of making it...
