    I long press the voice button on the steering wheel to activate google assistant, a short press activates Audis built in voice control.

    Not sure what you mean about a pin code. My unit was an earlier one that came without wireless android auto, the seller later sent me a firmware update that gave me the functionality

    Google assistant will not be able to contol anything on the car, they are not connected, you can only use it to contol apps and services you already have installed on your phone. I launch it by long pressing the voice button on the steering wheel

    Chinese carplay unit success in B8 with MMI 3G basic

    You need to run the video coax to the handle so I see little point in cutting into the car loom as the the camera is normally supplied with a coax/power combi cable, just connect this to the camera power feed that's already in the carplay box loom, and run a ground from the camera to a bolt in...

    The fact of the matter is, the UAD add on works properly and is supported for the Bnav, the no brand Chinese boxes are alway going to be a bit of a hack job to make work with varying degrees of success. You pays your money, you make your choice.

    Alternator clutch pulley

    I was having a juddering issue in reverse when I first got my car, I to thought it was the alternator clutch pulley but I pulled the belt and it was fine. I carried out a purge of the power steering fluid and refilled with correct stuff from TPS but this only improved it slightly. After a bit...

    Just bare in mind that if you disconnect a major component like the clocks, even with the ignition off, you will trigger a load of fault codes that will need to be reset. Handy to have OBDeleven or VCDS ready to test and reset

    I haven't pulled the clocks on mine, so not sure how difficult it will be, can't see why disconnecting them would cause any other problems. I've pulled loads of my car to bits to fit front and rear cameras, MMI high upgrade, android auto/ apple carplay add on, ect. Take your time, watch some...

    2 days 2 fails

    You seem to jumping ahead on this, have you pulled the clocks yet to have a look and make sure it's not something like a poor connection or a split ribbon cable? Can anyone confirm if just the DIS has component protection or if its only the whole clocks? Even if it does have CP, it's easy...

    Rear wheel bearings

    Rears on a front wheel drive car are easy, hub slides straight off the stib axle. Front involved removing the whole suspension arm as the pinch bolt was seized, so needed it on the bench to sort. After unbolting 3 hub carrier bolts, the 4th was butchered, looked like a previous replacement had...

    Rear wheel bearings

    Done the front and rears on my mates car on the drive with nothing more than basic hand tools and a Chinese knockoff Makita impact gun. Not an easy job but was definitely not the hardest thing I've tackled without a lift or air tools. Changing the clutch and dual mass flywheel on a 318D was...

    I managed to catch my wing mirror glass hanging on by a thread just before it fell off, so managed to glue it back on to the backing plate with decent contact adhesive, done both sides. My screen also went weird 1 day, it just turned completely white, cycling the ignition didn't fix it, but...
