What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

Purely down to design i'm afraid, anything type of motor assembly that has water passing through the motor has the chance to leak into the motor itself.

I got bored of it after the motor failed for a second time and just deleted the whole lot. I don’t miss it. I’ve driving plenty of cars and vans that don’t have a rear wiper or window so don’t find it a problem

Yeah my rear wiper stopped working about a week before I bought the new bootlid with wiper delete and spoiler fitted.
Silver linings haha.

Just another one of the B7 flaws I'm afraid Alex.
I'd like to say it's not happened to me yet but sadly it has, but luckily it was within the first year of my ownership and under audi warranty.
They fitted a completely new motor and wiper assembly back in 2015 , touch wood its been behaving since.

It is yes, one of the comman faults i thought I'd avoided, but hey, luckily a cheap fix. Already swapped the wiper arm and blade for a Q5 variant earlier in the year

Personally ive never got the whole de wipering thing. I like it there myself and use it when regularly. Each to their own ofcourse

To be honest Alex I’ve never thought about doing it before, but it was already done on a bootlid I bought purely because it had the S-line spoiler in the same colour as my car.
But as it’s already been done, it’s actually grown on me and I really like it.

Rear screen washer fluid leaks into the gears

I need to investigate mine then. The rear one has stopped squirting, so the fluid is going somewhere.

the fluid normally finds it way into the tailgate and then into the spare wheel well .

There is only 1 pump Alex , it just rotates in reverse for rear tailgate wash mode, cars with headlamp wash have a second pump though.

Today's little mod, that isn't too hard to do, but makes a big difference to the front end.

Changing the B7 front grille is one of the biggest improvements there is...

Whilst i carry on acquiring big turbo project bits , a random webby search resulted in me buying a brand new decat pipe for £20 to keep me busy in the short term.

Today i did little, but took a drive to West Yorkshire and got a remap.
Stock 170hp
Actual 168/169hp
Tuned 206hp

Car is stock apart from a pipercross panel filter and manifold without swirl flaps.
Car pulls better and runs smoother imo, but i got a bit too exuberant on the way home and might not have a license much longer to enjoy it for long after a cam van on a flyover :busted cop: :sorrow:

Nice little parcel on the doorstep today, even has a nice PCV delete plate with it, wasn't expecting that bit so a nice bonus.
As I'm running my own PCV delete setup that bit won't be used but handy for another project maybe.
Not bad for £20 :yes: , that's tomorrow sorted now.:icon thumright:

little addition to the front end, which was reasonably easy to do.
The only problematic bit was getting the first screw in.

The cupra splitter makes a huge difference to the look of a b7 front end, especially with an rs4 grill. It just fits the shape so well, especially with the correct bits fettled to perfect the fitment
