    ABS and ESP lights - Brake pressure sensor fault - Help!

    Thank you very much wilkoa6. Your notes exactly describe my problem and the excellent link to the correct brake pedal switch installation procedure corrected it immediately. I had my ABS control box repaired by Control Units at Cullompton which was absolutely excellent service, but still had...

    RUSTY wing

    Mine has done exactly the same both sides, quite symmetrical, from the highest point forward to the very front. I've had the car from new and tried to claim under Audi's anti perforation warranty. They were very hard nosed and said the warranty only covered corrosion coming from the back and...

    HELP! windscreen demister

    As stu-m says, it is possible to open up the little servo gearbox. There was a photo sequence of this on this forum last year, which I can't now find, which is very irritating as mine's just started doing it again occassionally. It seems as if the 2003 grease is starting to dry out now and...

    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...

    Broken glove box pully...thingy bob

    Many thanks Toff / Al. If I hadn't had your wonderful guide, I was going to attempt to separate the inner and outer leaves of the glovebox lid! Now I see it's actually much less risky and more satisfying!

    A4 owners - do this today and save yourself over £150!

    Thanks Quattrojames once again! You second link looks like what I need, but actually it's the same as the first one! If you do have the correct link I would be most grateful. I did see another photosequence on here, actually about hinge repair, but showing somebody actually separating the...

    A4 owners - do this today and save yourself over £150!

    My damper got stiff and eventually broke the hinge before I read this thread! My solution was to drill both sides of the break and insert a small piece of stainless wire as a dowel, glued into both sides and on the break itself. I then reinforced top and bottom outside faces with glass strands...

    Problems with site!!!!!

    Yes I had problems with it all this morning too. Kept launching Media Player and then saying site could not be foumd. Security Essentials then popped up saying stop whilst it "cleaned the computer". But it didn't find anything. Seems OK again now.

    A4 B6 Avant Alarm location

    I have exactly the same problem on 03 Avant. See Woorlord's reply to my query of yeterday, which gives an excellent pictorial guide to a cheap replacement method using Maplin batteries. Chrisavant

    Independent Recommended??????

    No, but I would also like to find someone good for VAG. Incidentally I used to really rate Hull Audi as one of the best (but obviously very expensive) Audi dealers. Richard Grice was the service manager and took real pride in the standard he set. However, Gilders Group who owned the...

    Audi A4/B6 Alarm Siren - Replace NiMH Batteries

    Brilliant solution! Thanks very much to Woorlord and QuattroJames for their help in providing this excellent and apparently fairly straightforward mod. I assume the beeping which appears to occur randomly at present is a built in warning for standby battery imminent failure? Presumably...

    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 -...

    Wipers starting to seize up

    Re: Siezed Wipers. I've just done mine and am indebted to x1rider for his marvellous photo sequence DIY: solving the "crap, my goddamn wipers are stuck in the middle of the windshield" problem - AudiWorld Forums I was concerned that this might not work on my RHD model (2.5TDi) but his advice to...

    2.5TDi Turbo removal - can anyone advise??

    I'll maybe take you up on this offer; many thanks. My son lives in N London and I think he is about to ask me to go and help with a bit of diy, so may well be in your area before too long. I'll contact you just before if it comes off. Thanks again.

    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. Midland Turbo at Nottingham are Garrett Turbo specialists and have told me that they can put my turbo on their test rig and tell me if it...
