Sorry for not explaining myself clearly.
I have been informed that the water got into the car via the plenum chamber beneath the battery due to blocked drain plugs.
I have spoken to audi and although some Cars were recalled to have this problem fixed, mine was not one of the lucky ones. So...
The Garage that carried out the work did modify the drain Plugs (remove) however as it wasn't Audi themselves who carried out the work and they are stating it isn't a common failure there is little chance of any goodwill.
But surely the plugs should be checked at each service as for water to...
I recently suffered a major flood of water into the passenger side of my A4 Avant. The water was about 6 inches deep in both the front and rear footwells. Needless to say th electrics suffered and I had to take it to the nearest garage to have a look!
This was the TT centre in...
I replaced the aux belt and tensioner pulley back in Feb this year but it is squealing again mainly at full lock esp when under load (aircon on).:sob:
I thought they were self tensioning types and i used OE Audi parts?
Anyone have any ideas what else could be wrong?
On a A4...
Finally went for a spirited drive last night with a couple of work colleages one of whom bought my old 172 cup :( and the other chap has a 225 megane cup!
Ok yes they were quicker than me but not by much i would just about keep with them until silly speeds when they would start pulling but...
Having always put Motul fully synthetic oil in my old clio cup it never let me down!
How does Motul fair in TDI engines
Doesnt seem a bad deal considering the quality of their oils?
Just before we had our son nearly two years ago we got rid of the wifes mini one for an A2!
The bugaboo fitted fine albeit better with rear wheels off!
First trip to centre parcs and i had to buy a kamei roof rack with bars and feet that fitted my 172 cup aswell!
Second son due in may hence...
Finally getting my Jabba work done this friday, so due to extra load of drive chain and internals is it worth changing the oil too?
I am supposed to be on long life servicing.
When i bought the car in early Dec the previous owner was doing about 20k a year and had a FSH from his local Audi...
Sorry for the random questions:
I have a roof box that fitted onto my wifes A2 with Thule foot pack 750 and bars (761). I need to put the box on my A4 avant with roof rails so i was hoping the feet will fit in the gutter as per the A2. This would stop me spending £60 on the 755's to fit the...
Wow how heavy are your A3's!:box:
My old 172 Cup used to run low 14's at the Pod although that was nearly 200bhp/per tonne!
Albeit not standard, usual NA bits and bobs done inc;
higher lift billet cams
inlet/exhaust manifolds matched
decent SS exhaust and sports cat
ITG panel with great CAF...
We had so many problems with my wifes A2 when we bought that. Thank fully they were all sorted under warranty. The temp gauge was a baffling one all the same as they must have looked at it 4/5 times with no error codes coming on until i had the tech come out with me until it did it. They...
I am a complete TDI virgin and never had a remap on one etc only car i have had was my old 172 cup to compliment some higher lifts cams and other goodies. It hardly set my hair alight, hence me being sceptical about a TDI map!
I know NA dont tune as easily but i didnt realise i could try before...
Had the same problem with my wifes A2 when she was expecting.
If there is no key switch to deactivate the passenger air bag, you need either Audi to do it or maybe someone with VAGCOM system to electronically deactivate it.
We left it on and have baby seats etc in rear seats.
Hope that helps
My airbag warning light came on the other day so when i had my alt pulley change my mech friend hooked it up to his snap on diagnostics and it said something along the lines of 'drivers side airbag-igniting limit reached-intermittent' It was reset and the light stayed off for a day then ping its...
