    Wipes when it should Wash !

    My A4 Avant 2.5 Tdi has just come up with a new trick - she now runs the rear wiper when the front washers are requested (ie pull stalk towards steering wheel) The washers don't start at all. The rear wiper still works correctly when the stalk is in the normal position for this (ie pushed...

    Beeping from A4 Avant rear right hand corner

    My Audi Avant 2.5 TDi 2003 has rently developed beeping in long bursts, which are not stopped by opening or closing central locking, ignition on or off etc. Sound appears to be coming from rear right hand corner behind boot side trim hatch. May be from an "amplifier" which is housed there -...

    2.5TDi Turbo removal - can anyone advise??

    Further to my thread below about Double Flushing Multitronic oil change, I am also going to get my turbo checked as I have conflicting advice on overboost.

    Turbo Wastegate "stuck"

    Hi guys, Can anyone advise on this problem. My 2.5TDi Multitronic is jerky at low speed just after moving off. At about 25 - 40 mph it again slightly jerks and squawks like a parrot. I feared Multitronic problems (as this was replaced 20,000 miles ago), but Audi have diagnosed that the...

    2003 Avant Rear Light Cluster

    Has anyone had experience of Avant rear light clusters filling up with water? My LH one in particular seems to let in water resulting in corrosion of contacts and spurious "failed bulb" warnings coming up. I take it off, dry it out, clean up the contacts and all is well but eventually it...

    A4 Slow Windscreen Wipers

    My 2003 A4 Avant 2.5 TDi wipers have suddenly decided to go slow. On a dry screen they even stop! This is particularly bad on first thing start-up - I guess the battery voltage is a bit lower then. The rear wiper is completely normal so presumably not a supply problem. Anyone got any...
