    Error codes P0421 & P0431

    Your not getting any other errors are you like fuel trim too lean or upper limit exceeded? Just the ones you have mentioned? If you getting these extra ones it's more likely your MAF. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Error codes P0421 & P0431

    I only got 1 on Bank2 post cat sensor as my other one hasn't flagged up any errors. I did try changing sensor on bank 2 thinking sensor was knackered but it wasn't. Everytime I reset the error the MIL light was coming back literally every 30 to 40 miles. Since adding the extension I've done...

    Error codes P0421 & P0431

    The errors codes are due to cats being below 100% efficiency but will still pass an MOT. You can buy a post cat O2 sensor extender for about £9 for each cat to stop the error. I had to do it with bank 2.of mine and no more errors. If u need a link to item.let me know. Sent from my SM-G930F...

    Springs not turning smoothly and will be sticking and freeing up so the noise is it hanging free. It will be the mount on the top, bearing will have collapsed. Parts cheap but unless your capable of removing strut, spring etc yourself probably gonna charge you at least an hrs Labour if not...

    Audi S3 8p DSG - not selecting gear - help

    Yeah only bought it January. Thankfully warrantywise covered nearly the full full except for £400 which I had cover as Audi wanted to replace the oil cooler and a wiring loom within the gearbox which were broken but as a preventative measure in the future. I plan on keeping the car a lot of...

    Audi S3 8p DSG - not selecting gear - help

    Good luck with cost. Similar fault on my RS5 cost £2700 at Audi to fix. Could have saved £1k going to a specialist but Audi squeezed car in the next day and had gearbox out, stripped, repaired and back on road in less than 48 hrs including extended test drive with 2 yr warranty on it.

    Wavey Discs

    My fault was the Transmission Control Unit. Basically once moving gear changes were fine but when stopping at junctions it would stay in neutral meaning is have to turn ignition off and on while moving it manually to P so when I restarted car it would pick up 1st gear when moving back to D...

    Wavey Discs

    If thats for all 4 for the RS5 that's a pretty good price for OEM. ' When mine was in having the gearbox fixed (nearly 3 grands worth) they tried to get 2 new rear discs and pads from me for another 800 so 1000 for for all 4 is good considering fronts are much more expensive.

    Should have listned to the pros

    I've fit a load of shocks and springs standard and lowered etc and looking at your pictures it looks to me as if you either have the wrong shock or wrong sized spring for the car. Never have i needed to fanny around shortening shock absorbers. Them front springs look like Linear as well...

    Looking for decent not expensive front brake discs please give me advice

    I just put brembo 330 mm front discs and bremo pads on my A3 170. Cost £115 delivered from ebay. Juat made sure you get the right sized disc. 170 comes with different sized discs and pads. Look at the label in your book for the part code and match against the brakes your odering.

    New brake discs and pads

    I've just had delivered some some brembo front discs and pads for my A3 170. Current set have clocked up 33k and pads still only half worn but brakes have started vibrating badly when heated up. Inner disc looks unevenly worn and most likely warped so I'm gonna swap them on Wednesday when I'm...

    Mintex disc + pads on a A3 170 Quattro anyone?

    I bought my A3 170 quattro with 22k on the clock and they fit new discs and pads all round. Found out today they were Eicher branded so just brand but they have been spot on. Clocked up 55k now so they have done 33k. Rears are fine but the fronts have started vibrating badly when braking so I...

    A5 3.0TDI Major Fault

    Definitely worth trying a new battery. I was getting weird errors and had battery tested which apparently was ok. Changed it anyway (stop start) and problems went.
