I think that all of the rear wiper motors look the same physically, but the gearbox internals are different.
The one on my A6 looked very like the one on my Mk1 Octavia.
I have been over to Prestige Motor Service (A8Parts) and found them very helpful and also quite willing to negotiate on price.
Possibly a fan controller fault?
I had one fan come on and off at when it shouldn't have been running and stay on after the car was switched off.
New ones are around £500 from Audi as they only come with the fan motor. Fortunately I found an aftermarket on on eBay for £90 without a motor and...
My car came with almost new PZero Rossos on when I bought it. Wore the full set out in less than a year!
Replaced with Kumho Ecsta LE Sports and transformed the car. Much cheaper, quieter, smoother ride and lasted twice as long too.
As SWMBO and I both work from home, we have decided that we don't really need three cars, so we've decided to sell two of them and buy one newer car.
My 2009 A6 Avant in garnet red, with manual gearbox will be up for sale shortly and I'll post an ad in the Trading Post.
I don't know how much the genuine ones are new as I bought mine second hand off B5Nut. I think they may be about £15 each.
If you have a look through B5Nut's build thread I think he has the part numbers there. I don't think TPS (Trade Parts Specialists) are on the web, they supply VAG parts to...
Go for the genuine ones from TPS or the dealers. The aftermarket ones are too bright anyway (IMHO).
They still flash when car does its bulb check, but don't give a bulb warning and the flash isn't as noticeable as they are not too bright.
Is it aux or supplementary heater?
I can't remember which what mine says off hand without checking but it is an electric heater that is used on the diesels to heat the interior until the coolant reaches a certain temp.
The Aux heater that B5 Nut is referring to is powered by fuel from the fuel...
Long shot, but try unplugging the rear wiper motor and see if the front washers start to work again.
I had a problem with an Octavia a few years back, the rear washer pipe leaked inside the wiper motor and I had the front wipers coming on and the headlamp washers squirting with the stalk in the...
There should be two plastic adjusters on each lamp which require an allen key to adjust.
Does your car have xenon or halogen lights?
If you have xenon and haven't done any work on the headlights, your self adjusters may not be working correctly.
235 is too narrow for a Le Mans anyway I think. I'm sure they should be 255/35 x 19.
The extra width would give you a bit more height in the sidewall too, but if you are finding the ride that bad you might want to consider going to 18" wheels from an S Line like mine with 245/40 x 18 tyres.
There probably is a procedure, these are German cars after all :sunglasses:
I wouldn't put Loctite on the adjusters, you need them to be able to be moved.
You will also need to keep putting the bumper on and off so that you can check the gap between it and the bottom of the lamp.
I couldn't get...
I think it's just trial and error to get them aligned and then use Gupstergs guide for what the gaps should be.
There should be enough friction between the lug on the lamp and the adjuster to allow you to tighten the bolts though.
