    Rear Wiper question.....

    I think that all of the rear wiper motors look the same physically, but the gearbox internals are different. The one on my A6 looked very like the one on my Mk1 Octavia. I have been over to Prestige Motor Service (A8Parts) and found them very helpful and also quite willing to negotiate on price.

    AC fan not running but Engine fan running when engine starts

    Possibly a fan controller fault? I had one fan come on and off at when it shouldn't have been running and stay on after the car was switched off. New ones are around £500 from Audi as they only come with the fan motor. Fortunately I found an aftermarket on on eBay for £90 without a motor and...

    My car came with almost new PZero Rossos on when I bought it. Wore the full set out in less than a year! Replaced with Kumho Ecsta LE Sports and transformed the car. Much cheaper, quieter, smoother ride and lasted twice as long too.

    Anyone looking for a Facelift 2.7TDI Avant?

    As SWMBO and I both work from home, we have decided that we don't really need three cars, so we've decided to sell two of them and buy one newer car. My 2009 A6 Avant in garnet red, with manual gearbox will be up for sale shortly and I'll post an ad in the Trading Post.

    Car value

    Try but make sure you are sitting down first! I did with mine and wasn't impressed, although their offer was about the same as I was offered in part-ex against another car.

    Front suspension

    I've just had my top arms replaced. My indie had to remove the full assembly and then drill the bolt out. Even heating the bolt with an induction heater wouldn't touch it.

    Quick one

    I don't know how much the genuine ones are new as I bought mine second hand off B5Nut. I think they may be about £15 each. If you have a look through B5Nut's build thread I think he has the part numbers there. I don't think TPS (Trade Parts Specialists) are on the web, they supply VAG parts to...

    Quick one

    Go for the genuine ones from TPS or the dealers. The aftermarket ones are too bright anyway (IMHO). They still flash when car does its bulb check, but don't give a bulb warning and the flash isn't as noticeable as they are not too bright.

    Audi a6 4f vcds scan

    Is it aux or supplementary heater? I can't remember which what mine says off hand without checking but it is an electric heater that is used on the diesels to heat the interior until the coolant reaches a certain temp. The Aux heater that B5 Nut is referring to is powered by fuel from the fuel...
