    Thanks for this guys. It is the power steering pressure sensor. Looks like it's been blanked off by a previous ownership just wrapped the sensor round other hoses. Major issue?

    To Break or Not to Break....

    Just wondering what the demand for parts is like out there these days? I'm considering breaking and wondered if anyone could give me any do's/dont's/tips. I haven't made my mind up yet and want to make an informed decision as to the challenge and potential reward. Cheers folks

    2002 S3 BAM I think it has had something deleted. There's an open hose with a metal inner in the bottom front driver side corner of the engine bay. I'll have a search on the secondary air pump idea. Thanks.

    hi, I changed my oil this weekend but couldn't get the filter off. After deliberating what to do overnight I decided to just put fresh oil in and get the filter removal tool and start over next weekend. Anyway, I just put the oil in, tried to start the car and it won't start. The ignition...
