keep checking local scrapyards, avoid audi breakers they know what the're worth, plus you never know what else you'll find while your there, my recent finds include leather handbrake handle, several avant toolkits, auto dim mirror
i got quoted £60 for a pump, but a complete impeller accidently fell into my toolbox so i repaired my own
nope in my boot i got a sponge cover meant for the pump loads of wires and 2 tubes. 1 tuebs goes to only the fuel cap cover so im assuming the other controls the entire central locking??? mine a a4 1996
96 will have a pump starting 4a0, you can get these fairly cheap, call in your local audi dealer with chassis no. and get a quote then when youve stopped laughing ask them give you the full part no, so you can get on ebay or down to scrappy
you cant convert to o.e remote c/l but once youve got a pump you can get an aftermarket kit
im pretty sure later models wont lock/unlock without a pump in place
i know mine wouldnt lock with the battery disconnected. As i was fitting my sub on monday and went to lock it not thinking and the door did nothing key turned but the pin stayed up and the door was still unlocked. So i'd presume that it wouldnt lock/unlock without a pump either.
whats part number? time to get on ebay!
the single outlet ones fetch a lot less as they dont fail as often
aragorn; i found this out the hard way by leaving lights on all day, put key in and nothing happened, could open boot but had to get AA out, he had to jack up, remove tray and attach leads to starter to get enough juice to unlock door, just as he pulled off i thought i wonder if i blow down airline it would unlock, it works aswell!
Like said earlier i dont have any pump at all it complety missing. audi gave me a gen number with my chassis number. ive found a 8lo 862 257 A on internet will this fit my car?? part number form audi was 8Lo 862 257 G so onlt he end letter different.
its not a remote c/l pump but would lock / unlock doors, 'A' is the most basic pump, still not convinced your car should have a twin outlet 8l0 pump though, how many wiring connectors have you got that would plug into pump, do they all have tiny connections?
