    allroad 2.5v6 2004 breaking selling. good engine dead gearbox

    What is your offer? I was hoping for around £1000, as that is what I think I could get if I were to sell the bits I can easily remove separately and then the engine/suspension components to a local independent garage who is interested.

    A6 avant Quattro est c5, door struggling to open.

    If its getting that hit & miss I suggest you completely remove your inside door trim now, if you end up not being able to open the door at all with the trim in place you are in big trouble. You would end up having to remove the rear door to get to the lock catch on the front to cut it to be able...
