    2.0tdi issue and preventative maintainance

    yeah my 2004 A4 is a 1.9pd 130 (AVF) engine with the egr on the top, so easy to get at. The A3 is a 2011 cr 2.0tdi (cffb i think) it did have a new egr fitted in January last year I think so hoping it'll be ok for a good while??! think the receipt was for a fair few hundred quid for that (before...

    2.0tdi issue and preventative maintainance

    How much is a new egr now a days then? would you remove it or, does 'coding' it out leave it in place but stop it from working? I know with my A4 b6 you can pull a rubber pipe off which stops it from activating. but i think on mine being a 2004 it does throw up a light on the dash. On that car...

    A4 Side Impact Sensor Fault

    You've got me wondering now, I'm sure it did as i've had the airbag light on 2 separate occasions and put it out & the only thing i have to hand is a cheap amazon code reader. Either that or the light goes out by itself. When i get a minute i'll plug mine in & see if i have the airbag option on...

    2.0tdi issue and preventative maintainance

    so you had your egr replaced following the emissions recall too.. that does make me wonder about the longevity of egr's on cars that have had the recall done then! (namely mine!)

    High mileage 2.0 TDI's! What does your odometer read?

    I have a 2011 2.0tdi CFFB, bought a year ago on 78k miles, now on 85k miles. 1 previous owner, fsh etc.. etc.. had emissions 'fix' closely followed by new egr (coincidence?) I've just had the clutch replaced as it died on me, seemingly mis-shaped clutch 'fingers'? or something like that which...

    A4 Side Impact Sensor Fault

    I think you'll need a code reader to clear the light as well unfortunately. I just have an amazon special & it does the job

    A4 Side Impact Sensor Fault

    I'm not 100% if it's the one you need but there is a yellow connector under the drivers seat. Slide the seat back & there should be a little hatch and there is a plug under there, mine has done this several times over the years & unplugging & plugging back in seemed to do the trick.

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    I had that same thought really, in my head after a long trip i always drive very steady for the last few miles before pulling up at my destination of let the engine idle for a few mins before switching off. I did wonder if the stop/start would be clever enough to not activate after a long...

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    You are right, it does require the clutch to be pressed to start. So yeah the switch must be ok it was the clicking pedal that a few people suggested might be caused by the switch, however it now seems like it was the white plastic clip on the pedal that had come apart. All is well now, long may...

    2.0tdi issue and preventative maintainance

    Not much help, but have you had that emissions software 'fix' carried out? Only thinking, I have a 2.0tdi 140, & looking through the history it had the emissions recall carried out & then following on from that the previous owners had a new EGR valve fitted. I've since read that whatever that...

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    I'm thinking along the lines of battery being disconnected has reset it maybe? it's not getting used anymore or any less than usual really. The Mrs has been out and about working all over the lockdowns. Funny the clutch switch mentioned as the pedal has been clicking for ages so I bought the...

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    Just wondering if any of you have any knowledge of this, I've had my 2011 A3 tdi for about a year & initially the stop start was working (so I kept turning it off lol!) but over the past year it's stopped working. Now, I've just had the clutch/dmf replaced after it died on me last week, and now...

    2011 A3 clutch pedal issue

    Well it didn't take long. The other half bravely took it to work today after being ok yesterday. She is now waiting for the tow truck, pedal on the floor and not going into gear. Luckily in a safe place and not causing any obstruction! Best dust the wallet off! Wish me luck. If it's the slave...

    2011 A3 clutch pedal issue

    I'm envisaging exactly that. I hate having the thought of it happening now though... What mileage/age was yours when it went? Mine is a 2011 with 85k miles on, previously I've had a MK4 golf TDI and a b6 bother with 160k+ miles on and no issues like this. Did you go the whole hog when changing...
