    Wing Mirror Glass

    Hi folks. My wing mirror glass needs replacing. It's expensive from Audi so I'm thinking of using this stick on one from Ebay. Wondering if anyone has used this with success on an S3 8L prefacelift? RIGHT DRIVER RHS OFF/S BLUE TINT CONVEX WING DOOR MIRROR GLASS FOR AUDI A3 96-00 | eBay

    Prefacelift Indicator

    Sorry, picked you wrong there. You reckon the S3 indicator is clear glass and the page you link to has an indicator with clear glass :) ! So the A3 has frosted glass and the S3 has clear glass\plastic. I wonder is that the only difference? The price of the S3 is double the price of the A3 -...

    Prefacelift Indicator

    I see what you are saying. I'm not 100% convinced though. That link you reference is most likely an after market part, which could explain it looking cheaper. That page lists the part as 8L5953050 which is the part number from the S3 (the A3 part number is 8L0953050). So mostly likely this...

    Prefacelift Indicator

    Here is my indicator (cracked down the bottom!). I don't see any chrome bits on it and it looks like a normal A3 one to me? I rang Audi parts dept. and they seem to have two different part numbers and two massively different prices! 8L5953050 S3 (€103.28) 8LO953050 (€54.25)

    Prefacelift Indicator

    Prefacelift Indicator

    Hi folks. I just got my indicator smashed on my 99 S3 when someone reversed into it! Does anyone know if the indicator is specific to the s3 or would an indicator from any prefacelift a3 fit?

    APY turbo to later models?

    OK, so it sounds like my friend has an extra hole in his turbo for the EGT? His problem is the turbo from the APY engine does not have the hole for the EGT? Is swapping the hotside from his old turbo to my turbo the only way of solving the problem here? Can you use the turbo without the EGT?

    APY turbo to later models?

    If I'm understanding you correctly you are saying that the turbo from a BAM engine will have an extra hole for EGT. But what my friend is telling me is that my turbo from an APY engine has an extra hole that the turbo from his 2002 225 TT does not have. Which sounds to be the opposite of what...

    APY turbo to later models?

    I had a turbo from an APY S3 that I gave to a friend who has a 2002 TT (225bhp engine). Assumed it would fit, but he says that my turbo has an extra hole? The part number of the APY S3 turbo is 53041015078 10.99

    APY turbo to later models?

    I'm looking to fit the APY turbo to a 2002 225 BHP TT engine. Is this possible? I have an APY turbo, but it seems to have an extra hole that the turbo from later engine does not have. Any ideas?

    Door Blade Problem

    Thanks. I think I will go for the quick fix for now and try a longer screw. When you say the nylon strip has started to unbond from the blade, I thought that the blade wasn't bonded to anything - it just slides onto the fixings?

    Door Blade Problem

    As mine is only slightly off at one end. I'm thinking I will just do the following: 1) Take out the screw 2) Drill a hole into the door blade 3) Put in a longer screw What you guys reckon? Is there enough in the end of the door blade to take a screw?

    Door Blade Problem

    I'm wondering how I just take the blade off. Do I need to remove any screws? It sounds like the four screws are holding the white plastic bit on. None of these screws go into the blade? So can I just pull the blade off?

    Door Blade Problem

    So do I have the same problem as the thread I referenced? I just couldn't tell if their blade came away from the white plastic part or the screws stopped holding the white plastic part. I tried unscrewing the two screws either end but my electric screwdriver was just wearing out the screw head...

    Hot air smell

    Darn. Sounds like the only way to fix this is pull it all out again and clean the section that the heater matrix slots into?
