Have tried the search on here but to no avail...
Stupid question = how do I change one of the bulbs in the high level brake light at the top of the boot? Have had a pole around but can't seem to get at it?
Thanks in advance
Recently, I have noticed a squeak from the front right wheel whenever I go over a bump or the suspension gets compressed. I have been getting the train to work recently so haven't been using it, and have only just had a chance to have a look at it.
Firstly, the top mounts look different -...
Yeah it was the base, it has 2 spindles which the wiper arms sit on. Over time crap gets into the spindles and the seize up. The new one I got seemed to be a slightly different design to help stop this happening.
Take the plastic scuttle off and take your old linkage out - you should be able to...
Seized wiper linkage? Common problem, lots of threads on this issue for A3's, A4's and mk4 golfs. You can attempt to take it apart and fix yourself or buy a new linkage from a dealer. Had to do mine a few months ago, invoice shows part number A1U2 955 603 C. Cost £49.73 inc VAT
Cheers mate, not going to be able to look at it until Sunday now but it at least gives me something to try then!
Yes I swapped the collars, and bolted the pedal up just to be sure and no wobble.
Bring on lots of loud swearing and sore fingers come Sunday!!
Cheers for the advice,
Westy you were right - metal part of the pedal had snapped as it seems is usual.
Got all the parts from VW and they are the same as Audi - £25.31 in total.
1st problem - how the hell do I get the white clip onto the end of the MC rod!? I have pushed and pulled and tried forever to get the clip...
Managed to have a quick look this morning before work, got the bottom dash trim off and was met by the main offender;
Had a look up at the pedal, luckily the master cylinder pushrod doesn't look bent which can sometimes happen.
This is how it looks pedal-wise...
Thread resurrection! Had this happen to me tonight, presume the part numbers in post 5 are what I need?
1H0721357 - mounting
1J2721332A - stop
Anyone have a part number for the clutch pedal as well as guessing I will need to change that too? And are these parts the same as mk4 golfs? Only a vw...
So the girlfriend is away this weekend meaning I can play with my car without fear of getting into trouble for neglecting her! Trouble is, I have no new parts or burning jobs I need to do.
Any suggestions? I cleaned the throttle body a couple of weeks ago and noticed a marginal improvement in...
Had similar issues on mine earlier in the week (see http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-forum-8l-chassis/161929-overheating-issues-water-pump.html#post1614655)
My suspicions were confirmed, water pump had broken (common issue), new one along with new cambelt and thermostat and its...
As always there has to be a problem...!
Driving down the motorway today at 70/80, glanced down at temp gauge and saw it was above 90, used air con display 49 which showed temp up at 112/13. Backed off and turned on hot air to get a bit more cooling, temp still stayed higher than 90 on air con...
Cheers Tufty for the suggestions, managed to have a root around my bay earlier today. Couldn't find any obviously bust pipes, except for the following (the small black plastic pipe coming from the DV - further down it hits a 'T' piece and all 3 are split) however looking at it, it carries wires...
I have the 17705 code up, has been there on and off ever since I got the car and the previous owner also had it (they changed the DV to a Forge one but code kept coming back). The car is a 2001 facelift 1.8T Quattro (ARY engine code).
Recently, I have been getting an intermittent...
Hi guys, my A3 decided not to want to wake up this morning..
Trie unlocking it remotely with the key fob - nothing. Key is less than 1 year old (had to get a new one from Audi after losing my old one). After unlocking it the old fashioned way with the key, tried turning the ignition and there...
Hi guys, this has no doubt been covered before but can't for the life of me get the search to work!
Wipers seem to have given up the ghost (VERY slow and get stuck halfway up/down the windscreen) so am guessing the culprit is a seized linkage.
Does anyone have a part number for the linkage...
Ive stupidly lost the only key fob for my 2001 a3, is the stealers the only option? If so, what kind of cost am i looking at? Also, will i have to somehow get the car to the dealers or are they able to reprogramme remotely? Thanks in advance guys
Like a few others I am in search of a new front bumper as a result of the recent snow...:(
Am I right in thinking the front bumper changed slightly as a result of the facelift? I have a facelift model and want to make sure any replacement I can find will fit!
