    Hi
    I have just fitted a scuttle cover to my A4 B7 Avant but still seem to be missing a cover, as shown in the picture, can anyone please advise a part number or name of the missing part? It would cover the ECU.
    Many thanks

    Mine doesn't have a cover over the ECU either. I've never seen one that does.

    I believe scuttle covers were standard on B6s, but not B7s.

    My B6 didn't have the cover when i got it, got all the parts off the bay, all genuine parts as well, all most certain B6 bits would fit a B7, basically same car isn't it.

    You have to buy that cover as well. I'm sure there is parts list on this forum.

    I dont have it either , also keep in mind a lot of B7's never had the full length cover to start with, my old bus never came with it factory fitment.

    only 3 parts involved .
    3B which is the pollen filter box cover , fitted as standard to all buses.
    the full length plenum cover is a single part and you'll need the battery cover section aswell as that is a single part.

    this picture highlights the issues the original op raised.
    the ECU box shape and size designs differ from variants hence why the final fit differs.

    Well I forgot I did not buy the extra cover when I purchased mine, as Rob states the TFSI has a different ECU box, why...
    That's Audi. I guess the TFSI ECU cover wont fit the oil burner box?

    Don't forget that when you change to the full length cover with battery panel the original pollen cover (3B) is not used .

    Maybe you could look at using the old pollen filter cover and modding it to fill the gap, just a thought.

    I still have mine, but my scuttle panel fits like yours so its looks fine.
    But he could try to make a cover from his old pollen fillter cover.

    Related to this are there drain holes in the top scuttle area that need periodically cleaning?

    I can’t see any and heavy rain seems to build up in there

    Underneath the battery, there's two rubber bungs, take them out and throw them away.

    If you have small hands and a bit of a contortionist you can get them out without removing the battery.
