    Can't seem to find this searching... In need of a new front bumper, grille and bonnet :-( Have been looking at breakers. Does anyone know will the front end of a 2005 3 door fit a sportback? Same trim level, sport.

    OEM Varta Battery Sealed or Wet

    Thanks Fossie. It's gone from driving across the county twice a day to just sitting in the driveway. Hopefully it just needs a top-up.

    OEM Varta Battery Sealed or Wet

    Need to charge the OEM Varta battery in my 2005 2.0 TDI. Does anyone know if this is a sealed or wet battery? Only code I can see on top is VAO, and according to the Varta website that doesn't exist. No indication as to what the type is either.. black dynamic, blue dynamic etc. Its a 72Ah...

    Winter Tyres / Dropping a wheel size?

    Thanks for that. What width are the steels? Is it worth going much narrower?

    Winter Tyres / Dropping a wheel size?

    Have been looking at putting winter tyres on my Sportback Sport, running standard 17" Sport wheels. Was thinking would I be better off trying to get some 16" SE wheels or steels even for the winter tyres? Could I go as small as 15" and clear the brakes? On the standard sport suspension would...

    2005 A3 2ltr TDI Question

    Have they advertised it as a 170? If so could be a nice bargaining angle. Just show them the sticker in the boot tyre well that says 110KW and say that's a 140 not a 170... now drop the price again...

    Wishbones for 2005 2.0 TDI DSG - Where to get a good deal?

    Bushes on both front lower wishbones need doing, and I've heard it's generally a better idea to just replace the whole arm as the bushes are a PITA to remove and replace. 2 questions: Why are there 2 types of wishbone available? The pressed type and the cast type... I assume the cast type...

    Help! Don't want to get ripped off, Inlet Manifold Flap Linkage broken!

    That price is outragous. If it does need doing, get the part and fit it yourself. Not a hard job...

    Engine Management Light

    The oil pressure light will come on after approx 7 or 8 seconds trying to turn the engine over. It only pops up because with the car not started the oil pump hasn't come on online so it reads the oil pressure as being insufficient. It's a knock on of the car not starting. How does it sound...

    DSG oil change when replacing flywheel?

    Personally I'd keep the money for the DMF, as that's likely to cost a fortune! Out of interest, have you gotten any prices on it?

    Cleaned out my EGR at the weekend and...

    Ah I follow, cheers mate! I just assumed that pipe was a straight feed from the exhaust manifold without any valves etc. Didn't know the recirculated gases were cooled either!

    Cleaned out my EGR at the weekend and...

    Sorry NHN I must be misunderstanding you! When you say egr flap/actuator do you mean the rod in the EGR or the flap in the IMF? Apologies for the ignorance and thank you for the help so far!

    Cleaned out my EGR at the weekend and...

    I checked the flap in the IMF when I had the EGR out, but I only pushed it down a couple of times. The flap was open, and returned to the open position each time. No real resistance on it. I suppose if there are only a couple of teeth broken on the cog it would only fail 1 or 2 times per...
