  1. Past hour
  2. Have a look here - http://www.vaglinks.com/Docs/Audi/B5/Bentley_Audi_A4_B5_WiringDiagram.pdf I found with a Google of 2003 a4 cabriolet b6 3.0L v6 wiring 👍
  3. Hi I assume we are talking wheels, please observe the following, the difference in tyre widths and the fact that your car speedo is designed to run with 17 inch wheels so you will have to use really low profile tyres to get the total O/D of the 19inch wheels the same as the 17inch wheel or go to Audi to re program the body control to accommodate the new 19 inch wheels unless you are happy to drive around with a speedo that is not entirely accurate, your choice and I wish you well with it, if the roads are anything like the roads in Essex be prepared for an increase in punctures. The wheels should be a straight swap centre and stud wise, not sure if the offset will be different there is a website telling you which wheels will fit what models of Audi. Steve.
  4. Hi Kev, nothing in particular to worry about apart from the normal things that wear out bushes, brakes, suspension, though in saying that I am well chuffed with my car as I use it for a cab just hit 105k and apart from changing the clutch [had problems] no major dramas to report, I can only say welcome to the forum and never be afraid to ask a question, I wish you well. Steve.
  5. Today
  6. Thanks for the reply, have looked at Meyle brand on eBay as they have 4year warranty and heavy duty. Thinking of getting full set for around £350 but been advised mainly lower ones go so not sure if worth it? Any advice on other issues to watch for as this my 1st Audi? Only had it 3 weeks and repair being done via warranty.
  7. Hi Ted they just released a new version of OBD 11which I believe covers a lot of these functions and is less than half the price of VCDS, have a look on their website and either call the help line or email them telling them what you want to do they are very helpful. Steve.
  8. Hi, im looking for a wiring diagram for the 2003 a4 cabriolet b6 3.0L v6 can anyone send me a link for it? thanks very much, phil.
  9. Boy oh boy, what a performance just to throw £20 worth of squirt in, I just open the flap and unscrew the cap, simples. Steve.
  10. Helping a friend who has owned this car since 2003 and needs to sell due to recent bereavement, posting on this forum as an opportunity for an Audi enthusiast to buy and restore. The current owner loves the car and she would love to see it go to an owner who will appreciate it. Original specification (excluding wheels and front seats) 5 private owners, first registered Nov 96 138,6475 miles Last MOT Aug 2019 The car is a runner, starts first time and drives well with no currently known major mechanical issues and would make a great project to restore. This car has been off the road since Aug 2020. Last MOT August 2019. Taken off road in Oct 2019 mainly due to catalytic convertor failing emissions. Needs two new wings which the owner already has and are currently selling separately on e-bay (last two from Audi Germany) Advisories from last MOT Pass Aug 2019 Disc Brakes worn but not seriously (both front) Front tyres cracking/perishing (both front) - Tread good Coil Springs corroded offside front, offside and nearside rear Oil leak, not excessive. I have lots more info for anyone interested...
  11. Thanks Ray, Yes, appreciate it’s a hybrid, but the ‘alternative fuel’ only able to take you less than half a gallon’s worth of fuel? My environmentally friendly hat would be coming off for a few seconds, while I do the mental arithmetic bit of working out how much alternative energy (and cost) is expended to travel this silly extra distance. My other (silly?) comment would be that I bet - with careful driving - you could coast that additional distance (at zero energy cost) over a tank full of fuel. Kind regards, Gareth.
  12. Hi all, just joined today as I'm the new owner of a 2013 A6 3.0 S line. Its a high miler with 128K so just wondering if theres any issues in particular i should be looking out for? The car drives like new for the miles and has a full service history between main dealer and independent.
  13. I'm pretty certain that you have to disable / isolate the battery before you can fill up - it's a safety feature - so there is probably a button in the car?
  14. Sounds like the app is the issue for the timer - I've had issues with the app v the website login regarding my location (the website had me in Canada!) so your time zone could be wrong (tenuous I know). Also googling your error code got this https://www.audiworld.com/forums/audi-e-tron-232/dreaded-vehicle-cannot-reached-error-3005616/page2/ Might be worth a try as long as you have your 10 digit code.
  15. Hello Gareth This is a hybrid. That said I only have to put petrol in it once every three to four weeks, but if it performed as they said it would, it would be a lot better. regards Ray
  16. Will it be a straight swap over, or do I need too add spacers or other bits. ? Cheers Guys.
  17. Thanks Ray, Defies my logic of faffing about for less than 20 miles. Really - what is the point? Kind regards, Gareth.
  18. Hello Blue -? Thanks for being in touch with the forum. I steered (pardon the pun) clear of brands promoted by a certain 3 letter national supplier, and bought Lemforder ones - may have been from them, or their often- cheaper sister company Car Parts for less. Buy once and wisely, and not on price. Try EBay for alternative suppliers of the same brand at more competitive prices. Yes, I would change both sides for peace of mind. Kind regards, Gareth.
  19. Thanks Magnet and Shytot for your comments. In answer to Magnet, yes I am only getting that sort of mileage, because the battery is only charging up to about 21-23miles regularly on a full charge, so when you factor traffic conditions, battery usage with air con etc, I am lucky to get this sort of miles. I have never ever had the battery charge to anywhere near the 32miles quoted by Audi. If it did ever charge to the figure of 32 miles, I would realistically expect to get around 21-23 when driving. But the car has never charged to that. Shytot, thanks for your feedback. The car will charge from the new EV charger that we have installed, but not on the timer. It will not activate a charge overnight as it does when being charged on the 13amp plug and if I send the car an instruction via the App it just comes back with an error and times out. Audi dealers confirm that it will charge off their EV chargers, but they have not tried to do it through the App. And that’s that as far as they are concerned. They clearly can afford to lose customers that have bought Audis repeatedly, because I shall certainly look elsewhere when this comes up for replacement.
  20. Have a half tank of petrol. Tried to fill this morning and petrol will not go into the tank. The petrol flows back out of the filler as if the tank is full. Any one have an idea of what’s up?
  21. Hi all, just got my Allroad but needs new front control arm. Any recommendations on brand and should both sides be replaced? Thanks
  22. Hello Arm, Could I be excused for thinking this has been in the hands of a boy racer? Of course, if this is what appeals then great. Adding to the potential downside:- private seller, no warranty. Is this beware territory? Kind regards, Gareth.
  23. Hello Ted, Cheaper to just nip into an independent? Kind regards, Gareth.
  24. Hello Ray, Just to eliminate any confusion in my dotage, can you confirm that your Audi will only convey you approx. 15 to 17 miles from a fully charged battery? Surely not. I’m having difficulty in getting my head around that, since it is barely a trip to Tesco in these rural parts! - and certainly won’t get you to the next motorway services! Kind regards, Gareth.
  25. I have no direct experience but I have a couple of thoughts. Does the new charging unit work besides the timer element? I guess that there are no compatibility issues - but it might be worth checking with the installer / manufacturer regarding the set up ? Can you try it out on a 3rd party charger - car park / supermarket? Does it charge OK and give better range? Regarding range, much like mpg, manufacturers claim numbers much higher than you will normally achieve. In this instance (as with so much of our renewable sources) it will be based on a calculation of the theoretical full capacity with no allowance for losses and inefficiencies. Temperature, the local terrain and number of passengers will also affect the range. Either way - it's best to ensure that the problem is logged with your dealer just in case it turns out to be a later known issue.
  26. Sorry to read the warning hasn’t gone away and hope it isn’t the ABS unit. However, I’m surprised you drove for so long with the fault as I found the brakes pulsed, like the ABS was kicking, when I had the problem?
  27. Thanks. What's the best way to get a cable and VCDS software? Ted
