    • Hi guys, By the way this is my first post. I would like some help please, I have removed the air intake manifold and cleaned all the carbon mug inside the unit. My question is what position are the swirl flaps inside the manifold with the actuator vacuum bolted to the manifold. The metal control arm that opens and closes the flaps with the actuator vacuum has broken off. I plan is to use quick steel epoxy putty on the piece to hold it in place.  Will the flaps been closed or opened when I use quick steel putty to bond the arm to the flap rod?   In that picture 2 is the metal piece I need to attach to the rod for the flaps to open or close inside the manifold. I'm assuming actuator vacuum unit is bolted back onto the manifold the flaps are in the closed position I just need clarification this is correct?    
    • UPDATE : Further to this thread I created yesterday regarding the humming noise whilst driving, I had both front tyres replaced this morning for Continental Sport Contact 6's as the existing 5P's were both under 2.5mm. Prior to this, my garage carried out a road test along with a comprehensive stethoscope test; the results were that the NSF wheel bearing was failing and required replacement in the very near future. The OSF appeared to be in good condition and I was advised this only be replaced when applicable. This has now been booked in with Audi M/D to be completed alongside my Long Life service and heating element re-call! (I'll collect the car in a week then ha!) I'll keep you updated with the conclusion. In the meantime, could any of you advise if the OSF wheel bearing should be replaced as well? As I have heard various stories of changing pairs. Thank you all in advance. Kind regards, BC
    • Hello everyone.   As the title really.  I'm getting an intermittent P0401 fault.  I notice it happens after a DPF regen (fan stays on, burning smell) Is it worth removing the EGR valve and cleaning it, if so. What location is it?  My car's a B8.5 140bhp 2.0 Cheers, Seán
    • Hello Matt, If you didn't go for Poundland then we take it you have the correct number battery and it's been inserted correctly.  Before going to the main dealer ( who are likely to extract around £70 out of your wallet) it might be worth trying the simple one of inserting the key in the ignition and turning it to postion 2 ( the one before the starter) five times, and on the fifth turn (ignition lights on) press the lock and unlock buttons, then switch off and try to start the car, or lock and unlock.  Probably won't work, but it doesn't cost anything!  Kind regards, Gareth. 
    • Hi John....I'm sure there is space on the stand but I would need Steve Q to confirm this. Either way, I would go ahead and book tickets and put down for displaying on the club stand anyway.
    • Hi Gareth. Thanks for you reply. I steered clear of the Poundland offering and did put a premium battery in   I am going to take you advice and nip to one of the local dealers to see if they can help   thanks again   matt  
    • hi folks,   Thought I'd hop onto this thread to save over populating the section.   Just picked up a TT that is 2002, 114k miles . lovely to drive   I'd like to stay on top of it maintenance wise, so at the min I'd like to sort out the fuel gauge , it's very all over the place. digital and analogue. Am I right in thinking it's the fuel sensor ? And what sort of job is it for a garage to sort ? Advice welcome
