not too sure why everyone goes down the b7 arms route. Just buy these, they fit straight onto the b6.
something thats been annoying me for a while but not really had chance to take a look. my headlight switch and overhead light buttons dont illuminate when headlights are switched on.
They have randomly come on once or twice but just go off on their own.
Hi, i have a 2002 avant, non bose with the sub in the boot.
I want to put an aftermarket stereo in, ive had a search through threads but there seems to be a lot of conflicting information on what works and what doesnt.
I do want all speakers and sub to be working properley. What will i need?
My aircon keeps blowing the fuse as soon as i press the button. Im guessing its either a faulty compressor or a short in the wiring anywhere. Thought I would check if anyone else has had this issue before? I would like to get my aircon working again asap.
Car is a 2.5tdi quattro
The clutches on these are really easy. Did one on a b7 1.9tdi last week, took me about 3 hours all in. There's no messing with ball joints etc. Just unbolt the driveshafts front the flange. You don't have to undo anything from the top in the engine bay, just drop the engine down and you can get...
Thanks for the reply. Yeah I could tell the knock had more weight behind it than a caliper so ruled that out. I put a set of used sport suspension on today and it's cured the front and rear knocks. So happy I finally sorted the issue as the car was nearly undriveable.
I will try tomorrow morning on my way to work. But I replaced my front discs the other day as my useless mintex ones warped within 6 months!! And everything felt solid, pads sat nice and tight.
Do you know if the rear suspension is different from non quattro and quattro?
Thanks guys sorry for the late reply.
C clamps and bushes on front are great.
Front and rear are both knocking now. It feels really harsh over bumps. I've removed rear arb to no change. I was going to get new top mounts and both my rear shocks are in poor shape so I need new shocks too. So I'm...
The nearside front has been knocking for a while when going over harsh roads. I've replaced all 4 arms, anti roll bar links and track rod end and it's still there!
Anyone else had to replace a wheel bearing or top mount due to knocking? Bearing and top mount seemed fine also when I checked...
Just tested the resistance in the n75, it just drops to 0, and seems to have continuity, its beeping on the continuity test, is this normal?
Edit - its reading 15 ohms
Edit again - ive bypassed the n75 from the vacuum pump to the anti shudder valve and that is working now, all seems to point...
Still baffled by this one. Ive just disconnected the wastegate hose, sucked on it and clamped the hose shut to keep a vacuum and she runs well, really well!!
The vacuum pump seems to sucking quite strong and brakes are good. We still have no anti shudder valve noise though. Any further ideas...
Ok so the shudder valve isnt operating when i shut the engine off, i do remember it working before though. Also i ran the n75 in basic settings and the wastegate rod would move up and slowly come down, should it not stay fully up for 5 seconds untill vacuum is released?
I logged n75 duty while...
cheers guys, i've been ill so not had much chance to have a look.
I scanned the car and the only fault that came up engine related was low level fuel sensor, this has been showing ever since i got the car a year ago, fuel gauge works fine though.
It did it again yesterday, i pulled over a few...
