    New summer 18", going to be a problem?

    Hej guys, I just recently upgraded my summer tires on the A3. As many might know, the A3 originally comes with 7,5x17" ET51 and 225x45-17 tires. However I now got 8,5x18" ET45 and 225x40-18 tires. My big worry all of a sudden is; Could this added rim-width give me problems the ball-bearings...

    I remember the sore fingers..... Autch! I ended up using a flat screw driver with black thick scotch around, taking pressure against a flat Woden stick to destribute the load to not only one point of the car (to avoid dents). This ended up breaking the white parts off you see in the picture...

    Things have been cleared out... -If you have DSG/S-tronic you are in luck - then it is indeed plug and play. -if you have manual - the you need to run a signal wire from the reverse light and up to the small green wire from the kit. I'll try and make a much better guide in the comming day...

    All in all I think the installation could had gone a lot faster, if only the instructions had been complete. Several times you had to guess. Now I would just like to know if any of the wires behind the radio gives 12v when in reverse. Or if I need to follow plan B --> wire all the way back to...

    Finally. It works. Green wire needs 12v signal for reverse, at least for a manual car.

    I would say that I did exactly that. discribtion: Take out the big square plug from behind the radio. Remove the Green, Blue and Brown plug for the big square plug. Install Green, Blue and Brown plug in the provided new square plug. Take the pink cable from behind the radio, and install it in...

    Got that sucker to let go, woohoo!! - turns out the OEM handle has 1 clip on each side that make sure it does not come off easily. Now, next challenge is to find a reverse signal - any good ideas?

    Your right - right now it seems pretty damn dumb to do this yourself... But then one might think of the other options. Get a rettrofitter to do it, but it will cost you 900-1000 € incl parts Sell the car and buy a new one, but that will cost you a huge loss on the car + 2000 € to Audi to fit...

    Maybe if we could find pictures of the back of an OEM camera, that would help to see if there are anything that could get cought up.

    That is correct Hartwell - it is coming out a little to an angle, but I'm not sure it is the bolts are catching the edge og their holes. What I'm afraid of is that there is something hidden, that I might rip apart if I put some serious force to it. -- untill now I have put force, but keeping in...

    There is one huge part, which looks like the handle needs to be pulled from the inside (close to the number plate) But I think the best thing right now would be to hear from someone which has taken the handle off. Or someone with a manual

    Well there was 2 bolts attached, that needed to be taken of before the handle would budge at all. But maybe the screews also needs to be de-attached.

    Not at all MjCourtney. I can only get the handle 3-4 mm out in one side, and 1-2 mm out in the other side... Seems like it is stuck, or somthing still holding it back.

    Gentle tap was not enough.... Seems very odd, I must say.... Can't even imagine how they would dismount it @ Audi themself.

    No, it is the handle that you operate to open the boot. In other words the part that I need to switch, to install the camera handle.
