    SQ5 New Car...Old Stomping Ground!

    The rear bumper lights on the FY9 are kept in by a single T20 Torx accessed via the flip off square you can see on the bumper but you will require a long 250mm Torx driver. I had a standard driver and that was way to short, used a hex extension bar in a T-bar with a torx hex bit and it was a...

    SQ5 New Car...Old Stomping Ground!

    What about reversing lights? Had a problem with an intermittent offside bumper light fitting and after repalcing the light cluster also decided to go LED on the reversing lights. The original T15 'Toshiba' filament bulbs did look reasonably white, but by comparison with the new very bright...

    SQ5 Corrosion recall "product improvement" 2018 SQ5 UK

    Our 2018 SQ5 was inspected and not affected. Audi did advise prior to the inspection that parts would be required (trim /panel covers) if the car needed any remedial action on this recall and they had done this for some vehicles they had previously inspected.

    SQ5 SQ5(FY) Rear DRL Coding

    Noticed our SQ5(FY) 2018 did not have the rear DRL's active. Searched high and low for the VCDS coding on the web and no clear coding. Older Q5 models advising byte-2 bit-7 of '09 Cent Elec' module but this setting was not valid for the FY. Tracked it down to byte-2 bit-3 ('sl_at_drl,active')...

    Retrofitting Valeo HID Xenons to H7 Headlight

    The components you suggest look spot on apart from item #4 the supply cable - I am sure you can probably source the correct plug from somewhere - maybe worth a quick query with Audi and get some repair wires and make up your own correct plug. Mine are still going strong - never had one single...

    Retrofit headlamp washers

    NO not for the correct OEM set-up - see post #16 for the circuit. The signal to the headlight washer motor comes straight from the "Central Electronics Controller" unit. I have had a pump fail in the past requiring replacement.

    Space Saver for TDIe - What Part Numbers please?

    First thing I did when I got it was to try it on the car - and it fits fine. I have also used it to get a puncture repaired after arriving home and a rear went flat. My nearest KwikFit is around 8 miles away so got me there OK. A colleague has an A4 TDIe Avant 163ps with the same alloys -...

    Audi A4/B6 Alarm Siren - Replace NiMH Batteries

    Scan your car with VCDS - it will tell you exactly what has set the alarm off. You may have a faulty switch in one of your doors - had problems previously with VW Passats with tailgate alarm switches in locks.

    help needed with lights please

    As requested - What is the part number of the original switch so I can determine if you are Hi-Line or Lo-Line circuit spec. This will reveal how the car is wired as there are a set of circuits for each. At least we have established the replacement switch is the same as the original.
