    Help Please Audi A4 3.0 TDi CCWA idle issues

    The ASV is right behind the inlet for the EGR and some oil and soot tends to accumulate around there gumming up the flap in the valve, or sometimes the motors do go bad with age (but rarely). It's fairly easy to clean if it happens again and you're that way inclined .

    Help Please Audi A4 3.0 TDi CCWA idle issues

    600-650 is about right when it's hot. They tend to idle at 800 when cold. On a CCWA (or any TDI) a P0638 will be for your anti shudder valve. If it's sticking it'll restrict the intake and cause the engine to die. But it does a full sweep every key cycle so would explain why it fired up fine after.

    Front bumper trim

    The bottom lip trim slips over the top of a support in the bumper, it's held on by 3 push pins (underneath) and four torx screws (from the back, accessible after removing the undertray). The grey part can then be slid off forwards.

    Help Please Headlight Alignment Issue

    Check the plastic levelling sensor arm attached to the bottom wishbone on the passenger side. It can break or unscrew leaving the headlights thinking the car is fully loaded. (This is based on the fact the lights used to be aligned further ahead of the car, the system could be fine just the...

    Help Please B8 Saloon 2.7tdi

    They're actually really simple to do. Just be careful pulling the door cards off as they're easy to break, the proper trim popper tool really helps. Get some new clips just incase you break a couple. Once you're inside its a couple of screws a wire connector and the door pull, pretty easy.

    Replace "Renew when replace" nuts and bolts or not?

    None of the subframe bolts are stretch bolts, they should be threaded all the way. If you already have them I'd be tempted to put them in. You'll probably be charged a restocking fee when returning them.

    Replace "Renew when replace" nuts and bolts or not?

    There are different reasons for the bolts being "Replace and renew". Some actually are stretch bolts so really do need to be replaced for example the engine mounts. I know of very few indys that replace them and you do occasionally hear about engines falling. Other bolts (subframe) aren't...

    "cheap" inlet manifolds

    3.0 CCWA I think removal is probably the way to go but if you could keep them for not much more it'd be worth it

    "cheap" inlet manifolds

    Having some trouble with my swirl flaps now and looking at refurbing the manifolds I've heard that the quality of some of the kits available isn't great, but now you can get a set of refurbished inlet manifolds for ~£160 Has anyone got any experience of these? Are they any good? The last...

    B8 passenger door lock issue

    Like Chez says the contacts and motor brushes get dirty and the whole mechanism jams up. They're pretty simple to take apart, clean, and put back together for a free fix. TPS sell the mechs for £120 ish + VAT or you can get copies very cheaply on eBay but they aren't always up to spec There...

    How to remove Service Due message

    Carista can also do it with the paid for version. On some cars you can reset the oil service in car settings on the MMI, but this will only do time/distance servicing not variable.

    2.0 Tdi thermostat or flange?

    The cooling system on these is needlessly complicated and depending on spec has different types and number of thermostats, so understandable if they're confused but the computer should sort that at their end. Is it a manual or auto? and does the plastic housing have 1 hose coming off it or 3...

    Help Please Dilemma! Keep car or get rid? Timing chain issue, 3.0 TDI

    The minimum parts alone are £400+ for a decent quality kit, so depending how friendly you are with him £1000 isn't miles out. You might even get away with just replacing the top tensioners like others on here, but you won't know until you're in there. Once its sorted with proper oil changes...
