    Haldex clutch malfunction

    Try Matt at AutoFaultFinder https://www.haldexrepairs.co.uk/ecu-testing-repair-service/ I scanned my one a while back and the clutch pump code came up. As I found out, it's mostly corroded circuitry in the Haldex controller that causes all the grief. I had my controller done a month back and...

    They might, if it was 7 1/2" with that offset it would fill the arches nicely. Just checked with my son, he has the same on his A3, fit fine.

    Wheel refurb done wrong???

    I'm surprised that the garage didn't disconnect the dash cam. I had my one in a couple of weeks ago and found my one disconnected when I got back. I'm pleased for you that they were too stupid and that they are putting it right, to some degree.

    Parcel received today, many thanks to @THQuattro and @Sandra for arranging the samples. I'll give these a go and write a review. Looks like, on reading through the previous posts, it's going to be a winner so I'll probably be in the market for more. Blistering quick delivery to the North of...

    Improving Ride Comfort on A3 Sport

    Don't know about the front struts, but you will have to take the bumper off to change the grille. About 20-30 minutes to remove, 30 minutes to swap the grille, same 20-30 minutes to put it back on.

    7 years and still going strong

    My first A3 was a pig, 2.0 TDi Blew two turbo's, cracked the cylinder head, it was crashed into twice, the second one wrote it off. Had it 3 years and I still loved it, despite the grief. I've had my second one, 3.2 quattro, for near on 4 years now and relatively speaking, it's been as good as...

    What have you done to your A3 (8p) this week

    Fitted my Haldex control module, which was newly repaired by Matt at AutoFaultFinder. Brilliant job he did, it's like a new car and for a 10 minute job, I don't know why I took so long to do it. https://www.haldexrepairs.co.uk/ecu-testing-repair-service/ Thumbs up from me.

    Car driver eventually proved to have killed a motorcyclist

    As a motorcyclist, this story is both disturbing and shockingly, not isolated. There are people out there who just cannot be trusted out on the road, but to willingly collide with a motorcyclist, who is extremely vulnerable without introducing speed, and then cause his death, is totally...

    Headlight washer cover sticking

    It's probably not the cover. I have to admit, I've never had a problem with this, but I have had the bumper off my car several times for various reasons. From what I saw and remember, the cover is attached to the top of the water jet, so I suspect that the problem is with the jet. You need to...

    I'm not too upset about the noise Matt, you're probably being hard on yourself. The Owl is pin sharp, excellent shot for me.
