    LED rear light not working

    Wonder if somebody could help me out please, I have a 2016 A4 Avant S-Line and tonight a warning came up on the dash saying "left rear light defective" when I took a look the outer rear light is not lit up but the one attached to the tailgate is. With these being LED I'm guessing it's not like...

    Alternator clutch pulley removal

    Clutch judder

    Many thanks for the replies and advice, I should have said we've only done 1700 miles in it since we got it. Going to take it up with the garage today!

    Alternator clutch pulley

    Hello, I'm trying to diagnose a fault on my wife's B8 2.0 tdi, the power steering is noisy when you turn the steering wheel (car stationary) and also there is a vibration through the steering wheel. I've checked the power steering fluid level and that is fine, I'm wondering if it's the...

    Just changed from A4 B8 Avant to B9 Avant

    Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated. I'm slowly getting used to the new car and do like it, just such a contrast to the old one but I think the old one was probably more tired than I realised as everything on this b9 feels stiff/taught. Glad to hear the gear lever thing is normal, feels...

    Just changed from A4 B8 Avant to B9 Avant

    Hello I've just changed our faithful A4 b8 Avant (2010) to a B9 avant (2016) and to be honest I'm a little disappointed but wondered if I'm not making a fair comparison. Our old b8 was a 2.0 tdi (caga) SE model and we'd done 175k miles in it! The only reason we swapped it was we had a steering...

    Sell or fix?

    Thanks for all the advise, sorry it's been a while getting back on here, was waiting to see what happened at MOT time and guess what, it passed! Well it needed new disc's and pads on the back but that's all. I reset the engine management light before I took it in (luckily it stayed off for a few...

    Sell or fix?

    Thanks, if I have to replace then I'd be looking at spending no more than 12k but I'm a bit tight and would like to spend nothing if possible! As for budget to fix I'm not sure, I'm guessing it'll cost near what the car is worth at the moment.
