    Strange smell

    when the engine is warm, with the windows down or heaters on I can smell what I believe is oil vapour. I can also smell the same smell from under the bonnet. I’ve checked all breather hoses etc and can’t see/smell any leaks. No signs of oil and no leaks on the floor. It’s had a new genuine...

    Passenger Airbag On warning

    I did my front brakes today (not helped by a two hour downpour). After I did the passenger side I got in the car to press the brake pedal but when the ignition was turned on it beeped and I got a warning saying "PASSENGER AIRBAG ON" This stays on and won't go away and there's the orange...

    A3 3.2 air leak?

    I have a 2007 A3 3.2 Quattro. Today with the hood up and engine running I have noticed what sounds like a small air leak when I blip the throttle. Almost sounds like something blowing through a tube if that makes sense. It's got that sort of sound to it. I have a fault code for rich running...

    P2196 Bank 1 Sensor 1 (too rich)

    Ok, so in June I had a new exhaust and sports cat fitted to my 2007 A3 3.2 Quattro. Immediately afterwards I got a load of different fault codes, including cat below efficiency, too lean post cat, too rich pre cat etc etc. I understood the post cat faults given I had a sports cat fitted, but...

    Are lambda sensors sided

    I have a V6 and two post cat lambda sensors. I know the connector colours are black and brown for bank 1 and bank 2, but are the sensors themselves sided? I have two new black connector lambda sensors, can I use a black one to replace the old brown one?

    So today I had a full stainless exhaust fitted including some stainless sport cats at Tony Banks in Leeds. Very pleased with their work and it sounds superb. However... on my way home, as I gave it some beans I got an engine management light. I assumed this would be to do with the emissions...

    Rear wiper seized... Fixed

    So my rear wiper stopped working on my 2007 3 door A3. It would get half way and then stop, until it got to a point where it wouldn't work at all. I removed the motor to investigate and it turns out the gear inside the unit had rusted solid and would not move. Basically I stripped it down and...
