    Window reg fitment issue

    I do agree with your sentiment! But in this case, my car is already 11 years old and whether it's on the road with a working window regulator in another 10 years is no concern of mine. It's an hours work, which I enjoy doing, on a non-critical part. If we were talking a full set of front...

    Window reg fitment issue

    Just had another look at their listing and it does say that the warranty is only honoured if fitted by a mechanic so my error there for not reading the small print. Not sure how many mechanics use eBay as their parts supplier though! I plan to have the car 3 years so one regulator a year at £60...

    Window reg fitment issue

    Interesting. What failed on the regulators? Why didn't you get your money back? They make a big point of the warranty so surely eBay wouldn't be too happy with them not honouring their listing.

    Window reg fitment issue

    Recently replaced mine with this one from eBay Didn't compare lengths but I assume it matched the old one. It's been working fine for two months now and at 20 quid with a 2 year warranty, a no-brainer...

    Replacing engine mounts....DIY job?

    My drivers side mount was in exactly the same, fluid-less, sunken condition but it had the heat shield fitted so didn't know that until I had removed it. Was always going to change both at the same time as it seemed the most sensible thing to do. I levered from the top of the engine bay, using...

    Replacing engine mounts....DIY job?

    A job I have recently done myself and yes, it's doable on the driveway and yes, drivers side is tricky. My symptoms since purchasing the car were a big 'jump' (how to describe it better???) when going on/off accelerator heavily...the linked video better illustrates the problem, especially...

    Oil overfill/ Pressure warning light

    There are companies out there that will 're-manufacture' your oil pump parts if you send them. As yours is one of the first B7s these were most prone to failure. Something to do with a plastic tensioner breaking and causing a slack chain to adversely wear the oil pump balancer shaft iirc. There...

    Glow plug light on intermittent

    First, clear the faults then do another scan and see which faults come back. For codes that come back, follow the advice on the RossTech Wiki 01259 - fuel pump wiring/relay fault 00532 - suggests your battery could be on it's last legs 01286 & 00778 - steering angle sensor possibly needs...

    Auto-Window Malfunction - Driver's Button Panel Only

    Recently had a similar problem with my drivers window. Sprayed some electrical contact cleaner (WD40 or such-like) in the switch, gave it a good wiggle for a few minutes and, hey presto, sorted. Got to be worth a try before ripping the door card off

    can i do a speedo head test with the vagcom ive got?

    The leads with the chips inside are official Ross Tech leads. As you have a copy lead, Ross Tech allow you to use VCDS Lite for "testing purposes" and offer no support. As your lead appears to work you can register VCDS Lite for approx £70 and this will give you Auto Scan, Coding & Adaptation...

    DTC Fault codes dilemma

    As above but also remove all the relays, etc in the ECU box to check for corrosion as you have the classic water ingress faults ie comms lost

    Ordered some bits.......:)

    I honestly don't know as Vag Com is before my time so I don't know of the differences. Someone else may be able to answer though. All the recoding guides out there or based on VCDS. Contacting Ross Tech is probably your best bet.

    First Audim - noob questions

    The airbag light issue HAS to be fixed before it'll pass an MOT. I would refuse the car if it's not sorted when you go to collect

    Ordered some bits.......:)

    You will need to register VCDS Lite (approx £70) before you can perfom any re-coding

    Clutch slipping - Big bill looming..? :(

    £50 cheaper than what I paid for my clutch and DMF fitted. There are different clutch/DMF sizes across the Audi range but seems a fair price

    Random warning dash symbols

    As you state heavy rain and going round a roundabout, perhaps you have water in the plenum chamber that's sloshing around???

    Logging Results: PD130

    I think i used 8mm tubing that I got from ebay along with some metal pipe connectors. Be aware that normal silicon tubing goes very soft with the hot fuel so I recommend getting high temp tubing. Also, because you're potentially dislodging **** in the engine, I'd recommend doing an oil, oil...
