    Brake Fluid 2014 A3

    Hi, Although I’m prepared to keep my car serviced at Audi due to the nature of the PCP contract, I’m not paying near on £100 for a simple brake fluid change. (Car is being part ex’d in the summer so VAG finance won’t see it!) I’m buying the genuine stuff myself then bung the local garage £20...

    Carista not picking up fault code

    Thanks, it appears that Carista and VCDS would not show the fault code that was causing the bulb malfunction light to come on. Eventually after visiting a couple of specialists, I had to go back to the dealer. They sorted it quickly, identifying a module software miscommunication. They reloaded...

    Faults that just don’t exist!

    Had the car in at the dealer today. All sorted. There was some mis-communication on some modules and they performed a vehicle update, relevant to my 2014 model. The mis-communication meant that no faults codes were stored, which is why all the independents I visited couldn’t find anything to...

    Faults that just don’t exist!

    Cheers, I wish it was as simple as that - I’ve had a couple of replacement switches (being the cheapest option) but to no avail... Increasingly of the mindset that regardless of cost* it’s something to leave with Sytner Audi Leeds. But I’ll also ask them about the hit on value at trade in if...

    Faults that just don’t exist!

    Yes I’ll do that then. However if Audi come back and say ‘yes we’ve found the fault, but here’s the potential bill...’ then surely I’m going to need to do some hard maths Value off car at part-ex vs cost of fix Unlike an engine malfunction light, the is road worthy and mot passable, I’d just...

    Faults that just don’t exist!

    Thanks both, it’s already been to one coding specialist in Leeds who said the only recurring fault found was a ‘fuel filler flap’ that wouldn’t go away, no other faults certainly not light related. They also did a software upgrade that was available but it didn’t solve it. I’m beginning to...

    Faults that just don’t exist!

    Hi there, close to pulling my hair out with a software fault [emoji35][emoji35]but more importantly be because I change the car next year. Basically the error in the photo can not be traced by Carista, or by VCDS or I believe by ODIS. It doesn’t seem to exist in any diagnostic report so can’t...

    Hi, found your info from the VCDS map. I'm based in Leeds during the week, and would like to have a VCDS scan due to a lighting malfunction error. If you're still able to help me I can get over to you - please let me know a cost as I don't really want to go main dealer route here! Thank you.

    Carista not picking up fault code

    Hi, wondered if anyone can help answer this question. I bought into Carista to try to help diagnose a lighting malfunction fault, however only once have I been able to return an error code with it (930056 Light Switch). Subsequently when I've tried to re-scan, the app gets 30% through, the...

    Part number query...

    Thanks, however I’ve checked that it’s the same configuration (bi xenon/auto lights/front fogs), all that seems to be different is a new icon on the fog lights and a different letter at the end of the part number. Some come from slightly newer A3s/TTs etc... Just wondering whether they are...

    Part number query...

    hi, A recent scan of my car showed a faulty light switch. I’m looking to replace with a second hand one from eBay - now the part no question. It is 8V0941531 but there are options with AR, AA, N after the part number. Is it safe to assume they’re just revisions and that the switch will work as...

    Vehicle Lights: Malfunction!

    Hi, I’ve had this warning message ping up for a while now. Initially I believed it to be a simple bulb out/near end of life warning, but after reading the vehicle manual the addition of the words ‘lights malfunction’ points towards the switch or headlights. I have the xenon factory lights...

    Wheel drop when using jack

    Hi, I jacked the car up yesterday using the stick jack supplied - I was swapping some tyres around. Anyway, on a flat surface the passenger side lifted up relatively quickly - wheel clearing the ground by a inch. However on the drivers side the jack needed it’s full extent to get the wheel...

    A3 tyre advice

    Thanks, I suppose my initial concern is whether I should have expected to hear a change by rotating tyres. However Barums are totally budget and they’ve all got an amount of uneven wear, but unfortunately still 6mm of tread! So I’m stuck between living with the noise whilst the tyres wear down...

    A3 tyre advice

    Hi, I’ve lived with increased tyre noise for a while now - quite high pitched so not your usual low rumbling - mainly coming from the front driver side, and much less so from the drivers rear. Day to day I've tried to analyse the noise, noticing it is pretty much always there but only quiet on...

    Road noise - please help!

    Hi, sorry it's been a while to get back on the forum, but thanks for the posts above. I have written off to the dealer again outlining my concerns about whether the initial heater box work was at fault. However I'm not really sure it's down to the work they've done - the noise (think blowing...
