    B6 brake bleeding

    Yes. Are you thinking master cylinder? Have also pressure bled it 3 or 4 times and still the same. Some have said the master cylinder can be bled?:readit:

    B6 brake bleeding

    Evening guys, I've recently changed the OSR caliper on the B6 and have bled it but without success, I have got air out of it and clean fluid coming through from the M/C. With the engine off: The brake peddle is soft, pump it up 2 or 3 times and its solid and up the top and doesn't sink...

    1.9tdi GEARBOX oil change. What oil?

    Thanks for the reply :) I'm not sure if the FWD boxes are spec'd for GL-4 or GL-5 tbh, but when I asked around a couple of years ago I remember someone saying "Changing it could do more harm than good" Which I thought was an odd thing to say, and why I haven't done it before. Anyway last week...

    1.9tdi GEARBOX oil change. What oil?

    The Haynes manual suggests G50 75w-90 The part number I got from Audi was G 052 911 A2 Which when I look at it on Ebay comes up as 75w-80. Is there much difference in 75w-80 and 75w-90? Also I've heard that using GL-5 oil instead of GL-4 oil kills the syncro mesh. Febi oil on Ebay: (GL-5...

    Coding keys

    I have one key that came with the car but has never operated the central locking. I would like to be able to operate the central locking from the key. I also bought a replacement key off of eBay, and some old genuine keys, so would like to build a spare key that would both start the car and...

    Brake upgrade

    Hi Chris, from my understanding there are two sizes of bolt centres, the B5 A5 uses the smaller bolt centres and the B6 uses the larger bolt centres. Iirc the B5 S4 uses the larger bolt centres. The mk1 TT 225 uses the smaller bolt centres (so will fit B5 struts) and also fit the B5...

    polybushing, which ones are best to replace

    Apologies for reviving an old thread, but did the OP (or anyone else) fit the PFF3-211 Powerflex? The instructions suggest putting the bush in at an angle and simply pushing them in. I'm not sure the Hulk could manage it. I have also tried with a vice and threaded bar/ sockets etc...

    A4 Roof Corrosion

    I'm interested, is it steel or aluminium that is corroding? Mine has the same. I'm guessing my B6 just got a little more expensive lol.

    Suspension refresh

    B5 1.9Tdi saloon I need to do the osf wheel bearing so figure in for a penny in for a pound. The suspension has done almost 200k miles, so is well due a refresh. I don't want so go silly (it's a daily) but also don't want to be fitting cheap parts . My plan is to replace: Both front wheel...

    Brake upgrades

    Well hopefully I have tracked down a set of brackets from a TT (time will tell!) And I've just cross referenced the disc part number and it seems it's fitted to quite a few cars: So it looks like I have a set on the Allroad and a set on the B6 to choose from for test fitting :-) Happy days :-)

    Brake upgrades

    Does anyone know what TT's use the bracket we need? Was it some of the 225bhp cars/ all of the 225bhp cars/ the 3.2s?

    Brake upgrades

    Not touched them to be honest mate, the Berlingo alternator has died, so have ordered a cam belt kit to do at the same time, and will pull it apart tomorrow to get the alternator repaired on Monday and then can hopefully crack on with the B5. The blower motor sounded like it was dying on Monday...
