hi
earlier today i flashed my hazards at a mate as he went the other way and about 5 mins later, the hazard switch lit up and all the indicators were permenantly on. i pulled over, whipped the fuse out (#39 iirc) and the lights went off. the indicators work as normal, but its mot time soon so i need it sorted, any ideas??
everyone seems to say the switch / relay is a common fault... sound likely?
oh if it makes a difference its a '51 S3 :blush:
cheers

Defo worth the wait :)
As already mentioned, it will be your hazard, cost about £40 from Audi and it takes about 20-30mins to change, you will have to take the centre piece out unclip the current one and clip the new one in...job done :)

takes about 5 minutes to change. lol.

There is another not so common fault as well, so if this doesnt solve it, start looking at your ECU.

Just screwdriver it off, but see if you can put a cloth or something in between as not to scratch ot.

The cup holder is yet another common problem, once mine goes in, it doesnt want to come back out!!!

yeh the black trim is just clipped in, carefully get a cloth +flat-headed screwdriver behind it, it doesnt take much force IIRC to prise it off.
It should all be clear from there.

As for the cup holder, mind was a bit iffy going back in sometimes so i priced a new one up from Audi it was over £30 so I just stuck with the one I had seeing as mine did actually still work fine.
