    Water in foot well problem. Allroad C5

    Thought I'd update this thread incase anyone else has the same issues. I have pulled the carpet back on the passenger side (UK) to reveal the funnel shaped drain pan pipe for the ac. Blown down it with a compressor. Not had any issues so far so fingers crossed this is the problem . Having...

    Water in foot well problem. Allroad C5

    Merci Chris. Got another soaking using AC yesterday and not had any rain for 3 days now, got to be AC drain. Do I tackle the job from the passenger side? Is it easy to pull apart and will I need a compressor to blow down the drain hole? One drain or two? Cheers.

    Water in foot well problem. Allroad C5

    The water comes from either side of the upper transmission tunnel, which makes me more suspicious of the ac drainage routes. Any pics photos of this operation. Thanks

    Water in foot well problem. Allroad C5

    Thanks for your reply Gaz. My pollen filter is on the other side but same principle applies I'm sure. . This fix will be related to when rain fall occurs. I will check and repair if necessary. Hope it's the problem and not ac drain leakage!

    Noticed there is no pollen filter cover, not sure if there is supposed to be one? Could be leaking at seal but is this related to outside rain input or ac problems?

    Water in foot well problem. Allroad C5

    Been getting water running into mainly drivers footwell and a bit into the passengers footwell. I unblocked the two drain holes around battery area a few days back. I have no sunroof on this 54 plated Allroad so suspect it's the AC drain plug that must be the culprit. Was using the ac a lot the...

    Allroad on 20" Alloys.

    Here's my old girl Chris T. I do like them black Munich's I think they'll look okay on her with the green! Plenty of room for 20"'s. She's on level 3 there. Ordered the steel spacers on ebay. Took Chris's advice as he has far more experience than me with these cars and there less than half the...

    Dilemma Break A6 Allroad 2.7 Tiptronic or Repair...Advice appreciated

    What did you pay for the car? This would be the main determining factor for me and overall condition of the rest of the car. Sounds like £1000 to £1500 with the right man behind the spanners! On rethink, based on the car being a 2.7 and triptronic I'm going to change my vote to scrap!

    Thanks Chris, useful info. Got my eye on these Wolfrace alloys. States ET45 on 8.5J'S on the web blurb: http://www.wheelbasealloys.com/alloy-wheels/wolfrace/assassin/silver/20-inch If I can go to 25mm spacers can I buy spacers that are permanently fixed independently with out going with...

    Allroad on 20" Alloys.

    Thanks for your post Chris. Just convinces me more that if I go bigger it will be 20's. I'm hanging fire on with the Alloys at the moment. Got a set of Audi mud flaps to fit first and the standard Audi 225/55/17 tyres have virtually new Pirellis on so thought I'd run them down this summer and...

    Cambelt change - 2001 2.5 tdi Allroad

    Adamss24 (Chris) is your man every time. I'd go as far as saying there's not a more knowledgeable man for the Allroad/V62.5tdi in the Country....fact! His rates are very good too. I've got relatives in Kings Langley and make a point of seeing Chris most times I'm down your way. Wish he lived a...
