    Audi S3 coolant "boiling", misfires, coolant in oil

    The system needs to be pressurised, otherwise once up to temperature it's going to boil over. If the tester you have is not working well then try a different tester. You should also be able to bleed the system before the car is fully up to temperature, there is usually a couple of bleed points...

    So today I went to remove the fuel tank, and I knew that someone had removed it already when they had replaced the fuel lines. So after removing the plate that covers the tank I was presented with this. This is a single picture that captures the quality of the work done to this car in the...

    Cleaned up the diff to start getting it ready for paint and to stop any dirt getting inside when I removed the input & output shafts to fit replacement seals. It was in a bit of a state, and when cleaning I was surprised Audi had the diff painted from factory (thought the black was just 26...

    So with the subframe off to the blasters it was time to look at the pin again. Tried twisting using the bottom of the pin but it was still stuck and it finally snapped off. So I filled the top of the pin and that appeared to free it up! The state of the actuator was also not the best. I'll...

    Had an interesting day removing the uprights and the rear subframe. First issue I had and still have is removing these trim pieces If anyone has any instruction on how these are removed I would be grateful. With the trim still in place I managed to get a 22mm spanner and 7mm allen key in and...

    finally refit the front bumper so I could engine started again and turn the car around, and start on the rear. There are still jobs to do like sort out the aircon system, need pump and front pipes. Now on to the rear of the car, and so far I'm presently surprised! I was expecting the rear to...

    Harder rear springs for an Avant

    They will be well past their best, I would also look at the bushes when the car has reached that many miles.

    Weird problems with windows and door unlocking

    I would take the door cards off and the rubber boot that goes between the door & A pillar and see if you have any damaged wiring.

    Control Arm Kits S4 B5...? Confusing!

    I would forget about Meyle and go Lemforder, they cost a little bit more but will last much longer, as they were the OEM arm for Audi, and even today you will still see where Lemfoder grind the Audi part number & logo for the arms as they are not allowed to sell them with Audi's logo still on...

    Yes I installed a new o-ring. My car is only making stock boost so the standard o-ring should be good enough, the pipe that goes onto the o-ring is also in good condition and had fresh paint so should not leak. However If I was running more boost then I would be looking at the sleeve...

    S2 Coupe restore thread.

    Yesterday evening I sorted out the headlights, I say sorted more like a dam good clean as looking at the chrome on the lights it going to have to be stripped and re-chromed which is not something I can do. First thing I noticed was yet again was rust, the clips to hold the top of the lights in...

    My A6 3.0TDi Avant bit of a rebuild and repair thread.

    An MMI unit from a C7 won't work , they use a higher speed can-bus system and are incompatible with the C6. You need converted A8 unit or a Q7 unit. This was my old unit https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165218475543?hash=item2677c9de17:g:EsoAAOSwRwFfgh1Z I know the seller and it works in a C6.

    DAB What are my options?

    On a MMI 2G system, the DAB module does not have CP. However It's not a straight swap on a 2G system. The standard AM/FM module needs to stay in the car. You need to then buy the DAB P&P wiring harness kit, the DAB receiver and an aerial (OEM or compatible aftermarket) If you have a later...

    My A6 3.0TDi Avant bit of a rebuild and repair thread.

    I'll send you the link to my old unit later today. I know that works and it's been unlocked by odis and it's 100% not stolen. Should be just about plug and play - a few green screen settings.
