    Whine from rear @ speed

    Had a quick search through the threads, but couldn't find anything on the 8V forum matching this. Have had my S3 a few months now and have noticed a hum/whine noise that seems to be coming from further back in the car. It only appears when sitting around 60-70mph and disappears beyond 75. I...

    Genuine Disc???

    Cheers for the replies, I found a guy selling his 2013 disc (up to date enough for me) for £20 and received that, not tried it out yet. I take it there are no compatibility issues with going from such an old version (2006) to the 2013 version

    Boot light issues

    Just to add to the story for the sake of telling my stupidness. Took out the number plate bulb holder for each side and tested and replaced the necessary led bulb. Managed to lose the screw. Had already taken the boot cover off before I realised it was the prongs. On putting it back on must...

    Boot light issues

    Thanks for the reply. One of the bulbs in the led had indeed gone. Other one was just a coincidence the prongs weren't finding the contacts. Must have been knocked about a bit. Brake light was completely unrelated.

    Help with changing A3 Sidelight Bulbs

    I think I contorted my hand so it no longer resembled a hand, then used my index and middle fingers either side of it as a lever to pry it out. Took a good half hour I think. I may have also removed something from one side as I remember one being harder than the other. Perseverance...

    AVS Servicing

    All, Have done a couple of searches through the forum just to find out a bit more about AVS servicing. Mainly, is it purely based on mileage or are there other factors to determine how long until the next service. i.e. magnetic sensors to detect oil quality or any other data used? Since I...

    Replacing the small 5W bulb (side light/DRL) on the left side

    I managed to get my hands in for one side, just, to replace it. The other side I just wouldn't bend that way. I used a screwdriver to prise out the bulb assembly from the holder. Gently of course as not to damage the plastic, just takes a bit of wiggling and it does come out. You then should...
