  1. Today
  2. I did. I live in Jamaica so it only rains here. I don’t know what to do. Maybe it’s the modules cuz the sensors seems fine to me. Is there anything else I can check?
  3. I’ve just ordered an avant black edition 40 tdi with the tech pack pro . The wait begins 🙂
  4. Yesterday
  5. You know I was thinking, could it be the thrust bearing, makes a similar sound.
  6. Yes it would be stub axle to bolted flange, although after having a chat with the mechanic he has managed to find a slimmer more oem boot and will replace it FOC as it was his mistake.
  7. I have a 3dr, my right drivers door is the most used especially if i have the kids in, I didn't bother looking at the passenger side as everything was working as it should. At least they didn't use the biodegradable plastic for the wires like Mercedes did, my old c class engine loom was all falling apart when I passed it on to some unsuspecting buyer.
  8. That's funny, it could be a sign! Yes, I'm a far way from Essex. My profile says Los Angeles so no clue how Essex pops up. Yes, I think this could be a clear sign to steer away. Maybe record the Vin and check back in 2-3 years to check the carfax and see if this was a bullet dodged!
  9. Got a 2010 Audi q5 2.0tdi Quattro it’s auto 7speed I think the clutch is going. It seems like it’s slipping bad certain gears it don’t do it like in 4th or 6th and sometimes 2nd but 1st,3rd,5th and 7th it just revs right up and then it comes up “gearbox malfunction you can continue driving (limited functionality)” if you put it in manual it will let you put your foot down abit more in a few of the gears especially 4th and 6th but still slips and comes up with malfunction. Does this sound like the clutch is going ? And how would I know which one to buy to replace it with. it was gearbox serviced about 1 month ago not long after we noticed it started slipping and the malfunction started coming up. any help much appreciated want to figure out if it’s easier/cheaper to replace the clutch or the gearbox with a second hand one
  10. Thanks Ian, I think you can do a far, far better advert than that to encourage its sale, and as Kev points out, you haven’t even included the price you want for it. Please come back to us Ian when you have come up with a more comprehensive advert, and the price. Please don’t state ‘Offers’. Many thanks, Gareth.
  11. Seems daft that it hasn’t sold Steve. Having said that, I offered a new Audi cambelt kit on here some time ago, and no one seemed interested. If I were you, I’d list it on EBay, where you are likely to get more reaction. Kind regards, Gareth.
  12. Hi if its the plastic retaining plate between the wing and the bumper you can buy new ones on line. Steve.
  13. Just a follow up, I replaced the wheel bearing and abs sensor. Lights and faults all cleared, looks like the ECU shuts off certain modules when it detects a short which causes other problems.
  14. Hi All, I have recently purchased a Q7 16 plate, it has keyless start, which is functioning correctly. Initially I thought it had keyless entry too, it has the squares on the door handles, I thought it might be disabled in the MMI. After a bit of digging I found the correct menu where I expected the option to enable convenience key and it was not there! My question is - if there is keyless start and it looks like the sensors are in the doors (squares on the doors) then is it simply a software update needed to add the option to the MMI menu and enable the keyless entry feature or is there further hardware implications? Thank you!

  16. I’ve specced an a6 avant (2024) with valcona leather seats, just wondering if the extended leatherette pack is worth adding and what would it offer in addition as looking at the details it’s offering the same as just choosing the valcona interior .( arm rest centre console etc ) thanks
  17. Abs sensor or harness is top culprit check wiring ...
  18. As Greg and Graeme say, need to put pressure on. I did notice comments on other forums detailing similar type problems on older cars. I certainly haven't had these problems on previous A3's and I am a big radio listener when driving. From my point of view, is that I don't think my dealership took me seriously, hoping I would 'go away'. I basically lost a week with their lack of interest. A customer complaint letter went off last night so I recommend you do the same if your dealership mess you around. They badger us for a good review and 5 stars in the sales survey so when things fail they must be told and bluntly so. I will post on and further developments
  19. I must qualify this by making it clear that I’m not certain on this, so please do your own checking and searching. I’ve been told by someone in the battery supply business, that Lion batteries will now be supplied under the Starline brand, so if you are considering buying a Starline battery, you may (in caps) be buying a Lion battery. Whatever, please do your own digging for detail. Kind regards, Gareth.
  20. Thanks Gill, Make of battery? - as a matter of interest? Kind regards, Gareth.
  21. Hello Gary, 2006 been-in-the-family-from-new, now showing 175K miles. Kind regards, Gareth.
  22. Hello George, I’ve amended ‘values’ to valves. It’s more complicated than with petrol engines. Have you looked up any You Tube presentations on this ? Kind regards, Gareth.
  23. Hello Hugo, If you have read the recommendations mentioned in the posts, and you still don’t know what to do, then your best option is to take the car to a trusted diesel specialist - rather than an ‘ordinary’ garage. Kind regards, Gareth.
  24. Welcome to the forum. Guys here have been very helpful in helping me with whatever is needed. I bought my first Audi in December last year. 3.0 TDi A8 - A bit older being a 2009 but its well looked after and doesnt really give much trouble (*touch wood*) Got VCDS aswell, but havent done alot with it! just the normal checks and stuff. making sure that everything is as it should be. I hope you enjoy the forum. Get a few pics of the car posted. We do like to see what other people are running and admire their cars. Regards, Neil H
  25. many thanks for the messages folks, few people have been to look and not sold yet a few just cant get cover on it at a good price, so please check insurance before messages to save time
