    The dial nearest the passenger door has never illuminated since I've had the car. I thought it was possibly not supposed to but that would be a bit strange I feel.

    Can anyone confirm this is a fault, & if so, how easy it would be to put right? Pic attached.

    Thanks

    Just checked mine and it’s illuminated.

    Yours must be under warranty still so book in with Audi to sort?

    Thanks. I didn't think something like that would be covered by warranty, great if it is though.

    If you’re feeling brave, have a look and see if the plug is in right.

    Did you get this sorted!

    I’ve just had my whole dash removed for a repair to the SOS antenna and noticed that now the drivers side vent isn’t illuminated. If it means lots of trim being removed I’ll live with it, but if it’s a quick fix I’ll take it in / do it myself!

    Cheers

    Sorry, only just seen this.

    Haven't done anything about it at all as yet. Same boat as you, if someone can point me in direction of a quick easy fix would have a go but not wanting the dash removed.

    Thanks Darky, looks like that would help Blessed_Badger but the dial that isn't illuminating on mine is the opposite side, nearest the passenger door. Do you have similar for that side?

    Thanks for all the help DarkyUK. I decided to ring the dealer who’d removed the dashboard and the receptionist said to pop in that night and a tech would give it a look over and do it there and then if he could - or book it in if it needed major surgery!

    Half an hour later, I was fully illuminated again and driving home.

    Changing subjects. Where do you get those diagrams from? Are they available freely on the internet? Looking for one to swap out the front grill for an RS style one but want to know what I’m getting into first before spending £250-£300!

    @Blessed_Badger Something that gets talks about a lot on here but doesn't really get noticed.... Sign up for an Audi Erwin account, pay I think 5 euro for a hours access, or more if you want a poke around, download all of the manuals in PDF form for your exact car :)

    Happy to share all of mine with you if its an A5 Cab / Sportback though, I have them on Google Drive anyway
