    S3 cuts out when warm :-s !! Anyone else had this ?

    Hi chazza, This sounds exactly like my problem at the moment, so did you replace the crank sensor and all was fine afterwards? I've got a quote for a new sensor to be £118.37, seems quite steep doesn't it? Cheers

    S3 cuts out when warm :-s !! Anyone else had this ?

    Hi Guys, it looks like I have got the same problem with my S3. When it tries to cut out on me, i shift it into a lower gear and the engine starts again for another few hundred metres. Does this point to the crank sensor going? There are no fault codes either Thanks in advance for any help

    Buzzing Interior Fan

    It's been a little while since I've had a free weekend to do anything to my car, but just investigated, and its the recirculation flap which is constantly buzzing. The interior fan is fine! Does anyone know how to replace the recirclation flap adjuster? I've tried to move its position, but...

    Buzzing Interior Fan

    Hey Guys, Just wondering if anyone has had the same problem as me with their interior fan in their pre-facelift S3? When I start the car, the interior fans are on 'Auto', and usually this is the same as the settings that I stopped the car with. I mostly run without the A/C on, so it fires...

    What are arb and drop links?

    An anti-roll bar is like a U-shaped piece of metal that twists to control body roll. The drop-links are small struts which connect from something that moves with the wheel (a wishbone, or damper or upright) to one end of the anti-roll bar. same with the other side, so when one wheel goes up on...

    Petrol smell through vents when stationary

    Hey there, sorry to bring up an old post, but it's relevant... :) I've got the same problem where I have an unburnt fuel smell coming in through the dashboard vents when stationary or moving at slow speeds. Do you think a leak from the fuel filter (near the rear of the car) can get the smell...

    squeeking brakes and ABS/ESP light

    had a little look again, and it seems that the part i want needs to be straight as you say Westle, but with a cable coming off it, going to a connector running up the trailing arm gonna tray a euro car parts one to see if that works, before going for the big bucks OEM one!

    abs sensor

    Zeeeebo, Just been out to have a look at the sensor... I can see the sensor, but the trigger disc is in front of it so I can't get at the sensor to push it out. Did you take the hub off?? From the back (inboard of the wheel) I can see the Allen bolt, but under the bolt head is a...

    abs sensor

    I had a look behind the hub and just below the cv joint seems to be where the sensor is, but I can only see a grounding ring terminal which bolts on. i'm expecting to see a 2pon plug and a bolt so I'm a little confused!! Am I looking at the right place?! Cheers
