    Esp stay on

    It does seem to indicate you need to initialise the steering angle sensor after disconnecting the battery, but seems like driving in a straight line for a short distance at 15/20km/h should do it. Have a look at the video below, seems they had an abs sensor fault that threw a code, once fixed...

    Esp stay on

    If it's like the A4, you might need to recalibrate the steering angle sensor. How far have you driven the car since? they need a few miles movement to sort the light out too if i remember rightly Did you remove the steering wheel by any chance?

    Odd Wiper movement?

    Hi All, I've noticed this for a while now.. When I use the 'single wipe', normally on first sweep the wipers go up, then down (out of view when driving) pause for a second & the wipers then move up a little bit so i can see the passenger side wiper arm at the side of the windscreen, if i then...

    High mileage 2.0 TDI's! What does your odometer read?

    So he wasn't too concerned about the thermostat then? £300!... Jeez! that is approaching cambelt money, mad. I can see how it might be 2hours labour though which is ridiculous. I did see, Darkside advertise a genuine Thermostat for £51 (didn't include delivery) The EGR on mine was replaced a...

    High mileage 2.0 TDI's! What does your odometer read?

    Yeah would be worth asking the advice of a mechanic about it, i just thought the car needed to meet certain criteria to perform the regen & one of those things is the coolant/engine temp.. I had a quick look at a couple of videos of changing the stat on a cffb engine!... looks like a far to big...

    High mileage 2.0 TDI's! What does your odometer read?

    Yeah I Hear you there... £500 is enough to be spending, especially around this time of year! My main concern is, if the coolant temp/car think the temp isn't optimal does it then postpone doing dfp regens? leading to possible issues with that? (I'm just guessing I'm no mechanic!) I'm not sure...

    High mileage 2.0 TDI's! What does your odometer read?

    What engine/year is your car? Doesn't sound too far out there when adding an Oil & fuel filter change, i'm sure I paid around the 300-400 mark for my a4 1.9tdi in the past. My 2011 2.0tdi is due a belt next year i think, so be interested in the comments on price for that, not had it done before...

    Creaky Steering :-(

    The latest Woe with my b6. Recently I've noticed the steering is creaking when making big turns/parking etc.. don't really notice when just turning a little. Anyone got any simple suggests to cheer me up as I'm feeling front suspension top mounts/arms... which will be an expensive job no doubt...

    Aero wipers not wiping in the middle

    umm lol.. no idea then, unless somehow the thread the arm sits on is a bit bent? Faulty aero blade maybe? Sorry i'm out of ideas

    Aero wipers not wiping in the middle

    Just a couple of thoughts, Is the wiper arm slightly bent? or have a weak spring? I have aero blades on my b6 without issue, so assume they should be ok as long as the arms are still in good shape

    Still love it

    I feel the same.. I have a 54 plate b6 sport avant in Mauritius Blue & still like it after owning it for the past 7 years or so. Bought on around 120k miles & now on 181k miles, it's usage has now dropped considerably as I'm now working from home since covid. But, being the older model I have...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    Good news & bad news for me.. I cleaned up the very corroded abs ring on the rear right (which the error code reported) lights were still on. I bought a new more expensive code reader & that cleared the fault & the lights went out.. and stayed out for the week up to the MOT, took it in for MOT...

    Best oil for 1.9 tdi avf

    I always used to Quantum platinum in my mk4 golf pd 130 & then went with the longlife 3 in the b6, only as thats what was previously used. As Gazwould I'd just make sure it's changed regularly with the correct spec, even though i used longlife oil i do change it annually which probably equated...

    Little issues

    Maybe it's worth removing & refitting the wheel & see what the slip ring/steering angle sensor looks & sounds like with the wheel off it might give you some indication on where the squeek is coming from. I've not removed the a3 steering wheel, but i expect it's the same as the older a4...

    Little issues

    The clutch clicking I can sympathise.. I bought a 2011 cr140 last year with the clicking pedal. I googled it before buying the car & general consensus was it's a white clip behind the clutch pedal that holds on to the master cylinder rod. Mine was just that...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    Seems i have the error back now and also it's decided to pop up the 1826 error code as well, that refers to the steering angle sensor... again! I'm hoping the 1826 code is something to do with disconnecting the battery & it having to calibrate (clutching at straws???) as i don't fancy messing...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    Yeah i think i'll have a look at the state of the sensor over the weekend. Just odd how it's keeping the lights on but now showing no error codes? when looking at them ages ago, the abs rings look like they were found at the bottom of the sea! but at that point they were working (it was the...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    MOT approaching fast & i've had the ABS & ESP lights coming on intermittently for a while now. Originally my amazon special code reader did pick up a code relating to the rear right wheel speed sensor (think it was code 287), however this past week the lights have been on constantly, I put the...
