    N/S door mirror indicator not working

    Hi folks, my dad's 2012 A3 sportback's n/s door mirror indicator is not working. How difficult a job is this to do on your own and will he have to buy an actual led strip? Cheers in advance.

    Esp fault fixed free of charge from audi?

    Good to hear. This is the first time I've used them as I normally use Kenny's autos vw/audi specialists or Kenny lobban (ironically has the same name & worked at Kenny's autos not that long ago). So I was not to sure about using a main dealer but I was gobsmacked with this price so much I'm...

    I'm pretty sure he told the young boy in the parts department to price up an ABS pump job?

    Esp fault fixed free of charge from audi?

    Well I had the car scanned this morning & it came up with a faulty brake pressure sensor and was told the whole ABS pump would need replaced. My vag specialist once again told me to take the car to audi for a good will gesture which I did. The guy in the service department at highland audi...

    Audi a3 2.0 tdi going into limp mode at high speed can anyone help

    Mine was doing it a 4000 rpm when accelarating hard. Turbo whistle is pretty standard with these engines. Could possibly be a boost leak if you think the whistle is more noticeable?

    Audi a3 2.0 tdi going into limp mode at high speed can anyone help

    Try getting the turbo cleaned out as it could just be sticky veins. Worked on my A3 a couple of weeks ago, doesn't go into limp mode anymore and now pulls like a train. Only cost me £110 so it's worth a try.

    Esp fault fixed free of charge from audi?

    That's the answer I'm looking for lol. Did vw just do it like it was water off a ducks back or did you really have to push them to do it for free? I've been looking on several other forums and it is obviously a very common fault with these cars, especially from 03 to 08 models right through the...

    Esp fault fixed free of charge from audi?

    when you say vag history do you mean main dealer history? As most of the work that has been done on my car has been from a vag specialist with genuine parts. Would that work in my favour?

    Esp fault fixed free of charge from audi?

    I have a full service history but only the first two services were done by audi, the rest have been done by a vag specialist. What year of car is yours?

    Esp fault fixed free of charge from audi?

    My esp light came on in my car last week and has remained on since. I phoned a local vag specialist today who is going to plug the car into vcds/vag com tomorrow to see what the fault is. He is fairly confident that the whole esp/abs pump will need replaced as this was a very common fault with...

    Letting the engine idle for a bit before switching off

    Looks like we have a keyboard warrior here! What the **** has performance got to do with it? Regardless of what you drive if you turn a turbocharged car straight off (even after a short journey) the turbo will still be spinning with no oil supply! The whole point of letting it idle for a bit is...
