My b7 1.9 115bhp just started going into limp mode with a weird noise, checked turbo fins look sharp and pretty clean, boost control sensor maybe?? And where is it??
The noise is also quite loud, it's not a whistle or a whine or boost leak.
Any help (anything) appreciated.
As title, renewed all discs and pads and my handbrake is still rubbish, it's so bad I cannot use it on the slightest of hills.
Anyone with some knowledge on the b6 braking system could help?
(Off subject also, changed temp sensor and stat this week and what a difference in car and fuel).
Think my clicking issues are from a worn cv joint. Before I take on the task of changing it, do I need any special tools for removal of old one?
Or is it one for the garage to do?
Any info be great thanks.
Front end of car clicks or slightly knocks every now and then. I've changed the drop links thinking it was them but it's still there.
Suspension is standard sport suspension on b5 perches.
Anyone any ideas what it could be, it's really really annoying.
I've checked everything and cannot see...
Seen this on past forums and not noticed a thread like this on here.
Basically whatever you have done to your b6 today stick it up on here. Washed it, fixed it, modded it, looked at it, took it somewhere...so on.
The brake pad low symbol is flashing (the yellow one).
Brake fluid is full, brake pads are really thick and sensors are fine.
Warning light comes on temperamental but sometimes don't come on until about 15 mins of driving.
Any ideas anyone?
Anyone bridged the sensor to delete the light...
Fitted my hids the other night then straight away ABS etc warning lights come on.
What I've learnt, expensive hids, cheap hids it's pot luck whether they'll throw the abs lights up.
Moving the ballasts works for some people for me it didn't.
The ground to the near side headlight shares the same...
About a year ago I made myself a cup holder to go in the rear armrest of the A4. 2 spaces for drinks and a storage area.
and it's served it's purpose brilliantly. With a 9 and a 4 year old in the back it's been perfect for our outings.
I've now made one that fits even better...
I'm interested in some new 18" alloys but the offset is really low at ET29.
The alloys are 8.5J wide.
What are your opinions on this setup for my avant? Are they gonna poke out to much with 225/45/18 tyres on them?
Any help much appreciated. thanks.
Since I've had car (1 year) the wipers has never run smooth across the windscreen.
The ones that were on there when I bought the car were retrofit and were rubbish so replaced with Bosch retro fit but were still awfull, then tried Valeo and still same outcome.
They all clear the rain fine but...
Over the Christmas period I've gone right through the car with a tooth pick, also given it a service etc, cleaned out them drains under battery, sorted leaky boot and a few other things.
Today renewed the air filter and the box was drenched!! Full of crap and a slightly damp bottom end of...
I've read the a4 mod site on how to strip the headlights and it says its not as easy as putting them in oven to separate them.
Now I only want to blacken the long chrome bit at the inside front of the headlight, not bothered about blackening the rest.
My question is, why can't I just put them in...
Are there cup holders that can be fitted or retro fitted inside the rear arm rest??
I can't find anything that will hold 2 cups/cans etc and I've set my mind on to making my own with 6mm acrylic and a laser engraver to cut to shape. 2 cut outs for 2 drinks and maybe engrave a couple of Audi...
Bought this with 75,000 miles on clock.
Pretty good nick but alloys seriously needed refurbing and one or two dings need pulling out. Apart from that, it was clean!!
First jobs done: snowfoam etc, claybar & a couple of layers of collinite.
Alloys refurbed, painted calipers and lcr splitter...
I've recently bought a 130 sport avant with s-line badges already on it but the previous owner has removed the 1.9 badge but left the tdi badge and put the s-line under the tdi. Just doesn't look right. (Pic would have been better I know).
Any pics of different badges or removed completely anyone??
