Hi guys, ive finally got round to replacing the rusted through front wings on my A4.
Does anyone have a "how to"guide for this job and is it an easy or difficult job ?

thanks in advance

Barry - have you tried claiming through the corrosion warranty? I've had mine down twice now - what year is the car?

Hi its a 2005 S-Line.
Thanks for the reply , yeh I had thought about it but really cant be bothered with all the claims and counter claims from Audi. I dont mind getting my hands dirty but just want to see if its easy enough to do.

:) Okay, no idea on actually doing it...as both times a slightly forceful "conversation" with Audi made it happen...

I tried and failed with Audi (mines a 2006) and given up to be honest. Id rather get a decent paint shop to paint them and fit them myself rather than them incompetent monkeys haha.

In regards to fitting, front bumper off, undo all the bolts you can see, then I think theres one when you open the door too. Sorry if its a bit vague, I'm just trying to remember when I helped my friend install his B6-B7 facelift wings :)

Corrosion warranty is always worth a try. I had a whole new roof skin fitted on my B7 £foc

Granted it took them 3 fricken months! And i racked up 7k miles between the 2 courtesy cars i had off them.

Its a 12 year corrosion warranty so worth a try? Usual get out of jail card is if they can prove the issue started with a stone chip...

Always worth a conversation - I don't think that should be a consideration - their main "checks" are stone chips and paint thickness as an indicator of non-approved paintjobs...
