    Too late now but it was only £8 delivered :)

    Do I need to replace my rear wiper motor?

    I've bit the bullet and picked up a new genuine motor from eBay and a wiper/bearing puller from Amazon.

    Do I need to replace my rear wiper motor?

    Last night my rear wiper started going at high speed, to turn it off I had to move my stalk into the on position. Later that night the wiper started again and nothing would switch it off. I read up about the problem on here and found it can be the jet hose has leaked or other problems so first...

    Does the 1.8 TFSI suffer chain tensioner issues?

    Would be interested to see what you find, the threads I found suggest it could be a problem on my engine though :(

    Does the 1.8 TFSI suffer chain tensioner issues?

    Sorry for the late response, it is the CDAA 1.8 TFSI. According to Wikipedia it is this spec: 160 PS (118 kW; 158 hp) @4500–6200 250 N·m (184 lb·ft) @1500–4500 7.4s 2009–2013. This thread mentions the engine code, but I am unsure where to find the build date of my car...

    Does the 1.8 TFSI suffer chain tensioner issues?

    I just got back from my service at an Audi specialist and at the end they say me down and warned me about a problem with the chain tensioner on my year of car, they said Audi used two different tensioners on the drive chain, one of which was known for releasing and damaging the engine to the...

    Where to get the battery flat fuses (for AMSS)

    I don't think I need a holder, I hope there is a spare slot on my battery but I needed to know what those types of fuses were called :)

    Where to get the battery flat fuses (for AMSS)

    Thanks, I was searching flat fuse rather than midi fuse :)

    Where to get the battery flat fuses (for AMSS)

    I have finally got my hands on an AMSS and am getting the bits together for the install. The guide uses a flat 40A fuse with the plastic on it, all I can find is what seems to be bare flat fuses...

    Adapting seats to fit another model? Specifically rear 8V seats into an 8P

    Thanks mate, I had been talking to Ash about the seats and he said about doing this too so I will take them to him to see what he can do :)

    Adapting seats to fit another model? Specifically rear 8V seats into an 8P

    Scrap that, just removed my boot sidewall lining and it is part of the chassis that makes contact with the seat so the bottom part of the seat is too long. With that in mind I think this will cost too much for a pro to do and will be too much for me to handle so will start looking for 8P rears...

    Adapting seats to fit another model? Specifically rear 8V seats into an 8P

    Hi all, I recently bought a set of full leather 8V seats to fit to my 8P. I expected the rears to be a complete mismatch but compared them to my 8P seats and they are more similar then I thought they would be. The top half seems to fit into place fine but the bottom of the rear makes contact...

    Audi A3 8P front seat male airbag connectors

    I feel silly requesting such a small part but can't find them elsewhere. I have just bought 8V seats and will be fitting to my 8P. The airbag plugs need changing so I need a pair of 8P plugs. P/N: 4e0 972 576 I would bundle other stuff with this but don't think I need anything else to get them...

    Can I drive my car after removing the passenger seat?

    I removed it just now, turned off the passenger airbag and there are no errors on the dash. I will still scan with VCDs once finished to make sure the new seats aren't showing any errors :)

    Can I drive my car after removing the passenger seat?

    Will read up about that tomorrow mate, sounds like a bit of a weird feature if true, don't like the idea of not having airbags even if it is only for one journey.

    Can I drive my car after removing the passenger seat?

    Cheers lads, just like I had hoped.

    Can I drive my car after removing the passenger seat?

    I haven't been able to find out if 8V seats are a straight fit into an 8P so I am thinking of removing my passenger seat and taking the car to someone selling a set of 8V seats to see if they simply fit into place. Obviously to do this I will be disconnecting the passenger airbag and so an...

    8V seats into an 8P?

    Anyone? I have seen threads that say they fit such as here: http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/a5-seats-into-an-a3.136184/#post-1807815 But the picture of the seats looks quite different to the ones I am looking at. The ones I am looking at have a separated headrest. Cheers

    8V seats into an 8P?

    I saw someone on here had done it but I didn't see how. Are the front seats a straight fit? How easy is it to change the wiring plugs for heated seats and airbags? I assume the rears won't fit. Cheers

    Will a 096 battery fit my 2010 8P 1.8TFSi?

    Cheers mate, I deleted it because I thought I was being stupid but then realised I wasn't. I ordered it so glad to hear it is right, strange how all of the sites that check using your reg are wrong and would have supplied me a battery with lower Ah and smaller in size.
