    Water ingress / wet carpets

    Update - I've got decent access to the firewall now. I've been scraping away at the sealant with a chisel and it all looks a bit mangled, it's almost as if someone has stuck in a mending plate but not sealed it in properly. I emptied a bottle of water onto my windscreen and some of it leaked in...

    Water ingress / wet carpets

    What kind of sealant would I use to fill the cracks after prepping the rusted metal?

    Water ingress / wet carpets

    It's just inside the ECU box opening, in the corner shown. I wonder if they did the sealing job through the hole.

    Water ingress / wet carpets

    Are you confident that there is access from the outside with the wing removed? Because the sealant is on the inside of the car, facing into back of the dash.

    Water ingress / wet carpets

    I've always had soaking wet carpets on the driver's side after heavy rain and have tried all the usual tricks to alleviate the problem, such as completely removing the bungs in the plenum chamber, resealing the ECU box and generally keeping the whole area clean of leaves and other debris. I was...

    ABS pump DIY replacement

    Well I got a used pump and decided to swap just the electronics (the control module) which I managed to do without having to disconnect any brake lines. I noticed the lower 2 torx screws were rusty and the watertight seal damaged in the same corners. Could this be why it’s failed? I coded in...

    London ULEZ question

    Hello, I have a question about London’s ULEZ (ultra low emission zone) that’s expanding in October. I understand that for petrol engines cars, anything that’s Euro 4 or better is exempt. However, my Y reg 2001 Audi A4 B6, which is Euro 3, appears to be exempt based on the TfL checker. Just...

    12v socket is always on

    My B6 is always on. The op will need to rewire the positive lead of the lighter socket to another circuit (one which comes on with the ignition) on the fuse panel.

    ABS pump DIY replacement

    I would hope a garage would know how to! BTW, I assume the handbrake would continue to work as normal?

    ABS pump DIY replacement

    I have an 00309 ABS Return Flow Pump (V39) error. I can see the pump is easy to replace except for the bleeding of the brake lines afterwards. Is there any reason why it wouldn’t be a good idea to do the swap with a second hand unit from eBay and then take the car into a garage to have the...

    Adding Bluetooth/stereo upgrade

    You could add Bluetooth but you’d have to give up the CD changer as there is no dedicated AUX input, as the dongles you would buy emulate the CD changer. Maybe you could do a double DIN conversion and get a Symphony radio with integrated CD changer then add Bluetooth? The glovebox CD changer...

    B6 normal steering wheel to B6 MFSW

    What is the part number of your clockring? It should end in ‘E’. If it ends in ‘C’, it won’t work. Do your MFSW buttons light up? Have you made sure the wiring is correct inside the steering wheel? There should be a specific harness for the MFSW buttons which connects to a control module on the...

    B6 normal steering wheel to B6 MFSW

    Hello, just wanted to chime in as I'm doing a similar upgrade to my B6. I don't think the SCCM ending in 'Q' is compatible with the B6 MFSW. If you look at this page http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/Cruise_Control_Retrofitting_(8E) you will see that there are many versions of the SCCM...
