    VCDS Scan with Electric Damper fault ,Adaptive head light Warning

    So update. The parts arrived and I have just used the tie rod off the cheap copy and refitted the Audi original. done a short drive and the codes seem to have stayed off so hopefully all sorted. Also fitted a replacement temp sensor for the AC and did the service.

    Thanks as always Dippy. I was hoping that might be the case and the fact that the data on each fault is the same in terms of time and count etc. I will let you know when the part turns up and I get it fitted
