    Fan noise behind dash

    I have a new noise coming from behind the dash - like a fan that is really unhappy! If i press and prod around above the hazard switch then i can get it to stop for a bit - at first we thought it was the DVD drive in the RNSe spinning. It happens almost all the time - whether the climate control...

    Lumpy then high idle...

    My 1.8T has started in the last few days to have a lumpy idle when it starts up. The rev counter is not flicking around alot, but you can feel it in the car - lumpy through the vibrations. Then, after about 3 or 4 minutes the idle goes from 800rpm to 1100rpm and stays there - not lumpy but...

    Which HID kit?

    Not been here for a while - don’t use my A4 that much. Years ago it had a HID kit put in instead of the normal halogen bulbs by a garage who don’t exist anymore.

    Hi all Looking at a 2.0Tdi C7 - in the family we've a BiTDI with the 8 speed box that's as smooth as silk. Now, we need a big car that's good on fuel so the 3 Tdi doesn't really fit the bill - the 2.0 177 is perfect. However, I really want an auto, but am slightly worried about the previous...

    Speedo stopped working

    was driving along this morning then the abs and esp lights came on and the speedo stopped working. The speedo needle bounces up to 0 when the car is switched on so I think it's not the dials, but rather the speed sensor or something like that? Anyone had that before? Cheersa

    Door seal replacement - a huge difference!

THis morning once the mist was cleared it didn't come back, result - and wind noise is gone! I didn't really realise I had a lot of...

    Windows frames

    Hi I need a new window frame to replace a bent one from where my car was broken into. There are lots on ebay but I'm not sure if saloon and avant rear frames are the same, and does it matter about electric or manual for just the frame? Thanks Chas
