    Reversing lights constantly on and parking sensor constantly beeping

    No there's no water there that I can see. I've now booked it in with the garage for first thing in the morning. I get really annoyed that such a reliable good car can be spoiled by such **** electrics.

    Reversing lights constantly on and parking sensor constantly beeping

    I suppose it could be but the sensors have been playing up recently giving a constant tone rather than beeping, it was always fine when first using the car but then started with the problem after a while of driving. There was a bit of a downpour this afternoon according to the wife and when she...

    1.9TDi 130 loss of power

    The wife has just driven it to the supermarket and said it was fine, though with her obviously being a woman (no offence ladies) I'll hold judgment until I've had a chance to drive it myself again which isnt going to be until tomorrow.

    1.9TDi 130 loss of power

    I've just had to take a trip to the next town and on my way back when joining the motorway the car would hardly accelerate. The turbo sounds like its operating as it should but it felt like the car was being restricted. I know I'm not giving much to go on here but does anyone have a slight idea...

    Rear wiper motor removal!

    Heating it? What do you mean, getting a hairdryer on it? Do you have to take it apart?

    unreal times we live in

    My A4 Avant is parked on a terraced street overnight, is insured for business and personal use for both my wife and I, and our premium is £480 this year with protected NCB (renewed about 4 months ago) We've been with Chris Knott Insurance ever since we got the car 3 years ago and went with them...

    Driving in the Snow - Multitronics

    I mean a standing start on ice, ESP definitely helps when mobile but hinders when attempting to start off. Try it next time you have icy roads.

    Rear wiper motor removal!

    Mine has gone on me, in fact it was on its way at the start of the year (kept randonly turning on itself) so I just disconnected the wires. Plugged it back in at the weekend and it swiped forth and back once and then nothing, its now dead. I've been looking on Ebay but they're all for pre-01...

    Driving in the Snow - Multitronics

    Try a standing start on a hill on total ice with your ESP on, its impossible. I got stuck last December when we had awful snow and ice here, I only got stuck because I stopped to help a nurse who was stuck, anyway off she drove once I got her going and there I was, stuck on this unlit country...

    Urgent Headlight help needed please

    Ok got to the bottom of this at the weekend, after having the headlight bulb replaced when it was in for 2 new tyres last week the other headlight bulb decided to pop on me on Friday night. Embarrasingly though when I replaced the "headlight" bulbs the previous week I found out that what I had...

    Urgent Headlight help needed please

    No unfortunately I dont. Tonight Im going to try something else, the rear right light cluster has been leaking presumably the seal has gone, so Im going to take that apart and check the contacts to see if that could be causing it.

    Urgent Headlight help needed please

    Hmm, but surely "rear left" is rear left no matter whether the car is left-hand or right-hand drive? :huh:

    Urgent Headlight help needed please

    Thanks for the replies so far guys, much appreciated. The fuse location is the reason for me posting really, the manual locates them in different places to what my fuse cover does, and the cover doesnt have any reference for headlights. The manual states slot 15 & 16 but those are both empty...
