Originally my amazon special code reader did pick up a code relating to the rear right wheel speed sensor (think it was code 287), however this past week the lights have been on constantly, I put the...

    Is Stop/Start affected by Faulty Clutch?

    Just wondering if any of you have any knowledge of this, I've had my 2011 A3 tdi for about a year & initially the stop start was working (so I kept turning it off lol!) but over the past year it's stopped working. Now, I've just had the clutch/dmf replaced after it died on me last week, and now...

    2011 A3 clutch pedal issue

    Evening all, as my luck would always have it. I'm 200+ miles from home on a bank holiday weekend and my car has decided to play up. The clutch pedal has gone odd, the bite point is right on the floor and it's more of an on off switch than a clutch! It still drove ok. I did pump the pedal a few...

    Abs sensor fault code 287

    Yesterday my b6 brought up the esp & abs warning lights intermittently. So couldn't get a code. Today the lights seem to be on all the time now so scanned it and got code 00287 which seems to relate to rear right abs sensor. I take it that it the driver's side rear then? When I was...

    Temporar Disabling the Alarm?

    Hi All, From a previous thread, it would seem i have a faulty Alarm Siren so will need to replace this at some point. So my question is, would there be any problems in pulling the fuse for the alarm to disable it for the time being to stop it going off at random? (need to see what fuse this is...

    Alarm/central locking red flashing light

    Got another potential issue with my A3. In the middle of the night last night the alarm went off on my car. I turned it off, had a look around and saw nothing to concern me. Then today I was packing the car to go away, I locked it and went in the house and the alarm went off again? I've now...

    Hesitation/restriction in power?

    Hi All, I have a bit of an odd very intermittent issue with my 2011 2.0tdi A3 (think cffb engine code) Every now and again, the car will feel like it's almost pulling back/feel very hesitant for a second. You put your foot down and it picks up & is fine. This normally happens when coasting/ at a...

    Hi All, The other half came home from work yesterday (in the heat!.. typical) and was complaining that the internal heater/ac fans weren't blowing.

    Wheel Speed Monitoring

    Hi all, In my quest to solve this intermittent abs/esp/god knows what issue with my b6, i'm suspecting it may be an abs sensor issue.. (among potentially other things) Now my question, do any of you know if there is a free/cheap way to monitor the wheel speed via the sensors to give me...

    G85 Steering angle sensor query

    Hi all, After a bit of info regarding the impact of having a dead/dying steering angle sensor. I've had intermittent esp light for a couple of years now. And this gave a error for the sensor. But not caused me an issue. Then a couple of times in the last year or so I have had the traction...

    Cheap Ebay Window regulators

    Hi All, For the 3rd time now over the years a front window regulator is playing up. In the past I've paid around the £50 mark for eurocarparts regulators & they've lasted a few years. However I've now noticed some on ebay for £15! I know it's probably a case of you get what you pay for but...

    2009 2.0tdi possible purchase

    Having owned my current b6 1.9 TDI for 4/5 years I'm now looking for a replacement family car. I've seen a 2owner 2009 sline Avant 88k miles for sale locally that looks ok, with FSH however I'm assuming the cambelt is 5 years/60k? If so, the cambelt needs doing (not sure the dealer agrees!! As...

    Gear grinding sound on startup?

    Hi All, Probably around a year ago I started my 2004 avant 1.9tdi (AVF) one morning & on turning the key it made a noise which I can only describe as that horrible noise when you miss a gear. I instantly turned the key back to off & then tried again, it then started and ran fine. It's been...

    Advice on possible purchase

    Hi All, Firstly, sorry if there is a buyers guide somewhere... I can't see anything obvious. I've been driving the older b6 1.9tdi avant for the past 4 years. It's been great but thinking of upgrading & have been offered a 2010 a4 avant 2.0 tdi 140 bhp I think & on around 84k miles. It says...

    Esp light

    Hi all, I've been getting the esp light coming on intermittently. I've scanned the codes with a cheap scanner and got 01826 00778 Which both indicate G85 steering angle sensor. Clutching at straws, but since having the tracking done last year the steering wheel is very slightly off centre...

    Rear Light cabling replacement

    Always had an issue with the rear passenger light on my 2004 avant. Intermittent bulb warnings.. turns out to be an iffy connection because the connector catch into the bulb holder is broken so it doesn't clip & hold in place. Over the years I have just wrapped some tape around it & it's held...

    My latest knocking noise

    If there was a competition for the most episodes of knocking on a b6 I think I'd win. The latest, I'm now getting a single knock when coming to a stop & a single knock when pulling away from the front. This happens most times, but certainly not every time I pull away/ brake. And you can avoid...
