    Rattling Shaking Noise

    Got it all back and it was perfect but there was a tremendous diesel smell in the cabin once I stopped after driving home. Thought it was prob just due to the fact there was prob diesel on the pipes from where they were working on it. Next morning there was puddles of diesel under the car though...

    Rattling Shaking Noise

    Ok so didn't really help. They sent the diagnosis to Germany and they said it looks like a faulty fuel injector in the 4th cylinder so they are sorting that out now at a discounted rate of 100 quid. So total price should be 660 assuming it sorts it! But looking online at common symptoms of a...

    Rattling Shaking Noise

    Went into Audi and they diagnosed it as the tensioner. So they replaced that and since I've 69k miles on it already they said I may as well do the belt and water pump to which I agreed. So they did all that and there's still a shudder apparently according to them so they checked the injectors...

    Rattling Shaking Noise

    When I start my A3 8V 1.6tdi S Line from cold now there is a definite mettalic sounding rattlinr noise from the engine area. The car itself shakes ever so gently as well at rest. If I take off in first gear and accelerate slowly or even leave it in gear and no acceleration every so often the car...

    Wing Mirror and Brake Pads

    Got my 2nd oil and filter change today at 28,000 miles. On the way home down a country road but wide enough for 2 cars a Peugeot 2008 jeep hit my wing mirror (I was hitting the overhanging hedge branches on my passenger side as he hit me). They drove on but I stopped as my mirror had folded in...

    Second Service

    I converted to miles in my previous posts but in KMs my first mini-service was at 15,000 KMS and now I'm at 39,000 KM and my next oil change according to the dash is in 1,000KM. However the dealer at the time told me that it'd be another 30,000KMs before I had to bring it back.

    Second Service

    We don't have a fixed or flexible service schedule in Ireland afaik. Hardly any short journeys in my car - always a good 45 minute trip or so and the longest it has sat unused has been for 3 days. So I should be fine waiting until the 30,000 mile mark before getting it serviced. Is there...

    Second Service

    Had my 8V A3 TDI Saloon since mid October 2016 (bought new at the time) and it had its first oil change at 10,000 miles in February and now I'm up to almost 25,000 miles and the dash is counting down to another oil change (at 25,000 miles). However, when I got it serviced in February they told...

    Weird Intermittent Creaking

    Discovered the creak. So when I am standing otuside the car and grab the head rest of the seat behind the driver and shake it left to right the creak noise starts. If someone sits in the seat whilst driving then there is no creak noise. I've played around with re-adjusting the seat by folding it...

    Weird Intermittent Creaking

    Here's the sound I'm expierencing. Do you reckon it's similar? It is coming from the rear right seat area I feel. http://vocaroo.com/i/s1rjUYHSiQpw

    Weird Intermittent Creaking

    Thanks Steve, appreciated. It does sound quite a bit like the noise I'm experiencing but perhaps slightly duller. I'm wondering in real life does it sound almost like the noise is inside the car itself when in fact it's actually outside the cabin?

    Weird Intermittent Creaking

    Does anyone have that sound clip somewhere to re-upload as the url is not working anymore. My 8V Saloon has a creak on bumpy roads in the rear drivers side and I reckon it could be whay steve roberts described above.

    Removing Dealer Surround on Number Plate

    It's the latter. Can I buy the plates online with the correct holes in them to screw in or does it have to be from an Audi dealer directly?

    Removing Dealer Surround on Number Plate

    Is it possible to have a number plate on my 8V without having the dealer surround thing installed? Just started looking online and can't find anything useful but it looks impossible as the plate that pops out of the surround doesn't have any screws or similar.

    Air Vent Removal

    Haha! I've seen that video. No help to me. Mines don't easily pop out like his does. I think the credit card trick will help me when I get to try it.

    Air Vent Removal

    I've got the AudiPhoneHolder.com magnetic phone holder delivered now but I can't for the life of me take off the air vents the way their website describes! I've broken a bit of my nail attempting to get my finger nails behind on both sides and pulling and wriggling. Any one have any tips or...

    Sit down for this one!

    I'm getting my first oil and filter change tomorrow at 15,000km's. Had the car 4.5 months now. Paying 189 euro which is 162 pounds for it. Seems cheap to what you guys are getting quoted but then again we have to pay about 20% more for our cars in the first place over here!

    Front Grill Emblem

    Yeah I tried that while the badge was on the car and it didn't work out. I then took the badge off and fitted an aftermarket one but in the process of taking it off I broke one of the attachments on the oem badge and when I realsied the aftermarket one wasnt quite thick enough I put the OEM back...
