    Drivers lock part number for January 2006 Sportback 2.0TDI

    Recently my OSF (driver) door is unlocking intermittently on the key fob, mostly it does not work. I'm still able to unlock with the key. Pressing the interior unlock button has the same problem as the key fob. Strangely/thankfully I can open the door from inside. The other doors all...

    Rocker cover PCV testing

    I replaced a glow plug on my 2006 diesel (BKD) car last week in order to cure a glow plug warning that had been present in my VCDS logs for about a year. Whilst I had the rocker cover off, I was curious to know the state of the PCV in it. As it appears to be sealed inside the rocker cover, I...

    Power consumption on a BKD 2.0TDI

    For the past few months I've had a noise from the engine bay that I just kept ignoring. I thought it might be my turbo oil feed leak returning but oil consumption whilst not great, wasn't that bad. Then last week the over-running pulley fell off the alternator. I sourced a new alternator and...

    BKD Turbo oil feed pipe leak

    For the 3rd time in as many years I have had a new turbo oil feed pipe and union fitted to the turbo on my 2006 2.0 TDI sportback with 196k on the clock. It's costing roughly £275 a time and is pretty inconvenient - this time I was 100 miles away so needed a tow as the leak was so profuse...

    Faulty remote key fob

    One of the keys I've received with my 2006 sportback doesn't allow me to lock/unlock the car via the buttons. I can use that key to unlock the car and drive away without any problems. Having disassembled the remote (see 2006 Audi A3 sportback remote components | Flickr - Photo Sharing!) I can...

    Stock 2.0 TDI boost data

    On the Ross Tech website there's a graph depicting the actual and requested boost v. rpm for a 1.9 TDI engine. I recently did the same test for my A3 2.0 TDI PD engine. The graph is slightly different. There is more jitter with the actual boost around the 2100 rpm. Also the requested boost...
