  9. Hello Pip, Audi dealers should be open shortly, so that would be my best advice, to ensure you have the correct ones as quickly as possible. Kind regards, Gareth.

  13. Hey all! I know Im too late to the party, but suffering from the same symptoms, fuel gauge was working on and off, then mostly off for a couple of months, took the car for a full service, then suddenly worked ... for a day, might give the instrument cluster hack a try from above. but still need a permanent fix. Is there any way to tell without VCDS which sensor is faulty? Read somewhere that can be measured with a multimeter , two middle pins on top of the fuel pump socket. Wondering if anyone know a post, or made any photos about the procedure of replacing these sensors? how easy it is to replace? also can anyone tell me the part number for the sensors? thanks in advance
  14. Hi CSB, ive got the same motor and had the same EML light and code come up today... did you find a solution or new manifold? Thanks
  15. No as soon as you stop spraying it dies. To be fair buddy thats the conclusion I've come to. I'm currently weighing the options on a used pump vs a recon/new. The new fuel pressure sensor arrived today so I fitted that but alas no improvements. - I'm basically skirting round the 'I'm gonna have to replace the HPFP' issue lol. I'm sorely tempted to pull this one to bits so see whats actually failed but obviously if the replacment carries a surcharge I can't go too mad with it.
  16. Nice vid. How is the ride on the 20s? Did they say why only getting 14mpg as that is a big difference from getting a stage 1 or is that standard for the TT?
  17. Good luck, please keep us posted on how you get on 🙂 Cheers Steve
  18. Hi, knowing the Jaguar forum [ I used to be Chairman of the club ] I don’t think it’ll have half as many graphic designers, advertising men or publicity agents as this Audi forum. However, not having had much response here [ thank you for yours, by the way ], I will try another forum as well. I’ll try both the Alfa Romeo and Aston Martin forums since I am a member of both those clubs. As it happens, the subject matter of the pictures doesn’t matter. It could be cans of beans, packets of painkillers, or the latest Lamborghini. The name I am seeking is what the type of picture that is used to make presentations or obtain approval prior to being used for advertising, printing etc. Cheers.
  19. Hello Keith, I’m of the same mind as Cliff, and question why you would want to syphon the oil out rather than remove the drain plug - take it your 10 year old model has a drain plug, and appreciating some more recent model don’t. Re Mobil 1 5w/30:- a good oil ( I use it in our non-Audi) available in Wilco for around £24, but the preferred oil for the Audi is the recommenced/was recommended Quantum brand, and I use their Longlife 3, (on EBay) which although will last for c18k, I change it every year at around 6 to 7K. Re. Blackness of oil, I think you will gain more by getting your current oil up to temperature (min 10 mile run) and leaving it to drain off for at least half an hour. Ok, using the Ford oil for a couple of days should be fine, but I would not trade off the benefits of this against syphoning rather than draining. As a matter of interest, what oil filters are you using Keith? Kind regards, Gareth.
  20. I would most certainly being doing my search homework first. You need to be able to stand your corner, and get a plausible explanation for why the oil level increased - which it certainly did, and dictated the Audi Assist man to drain some off. Don’t be fobbed off with some Cummingsesque excuse! Suffering oil dilution/contamination with diesel can have serious consequences for engines. Personally, I would not be happy with a simple oil and filter change - which is most likely they will do. Kind regards, Gareth.
  21. Unfortunately mk1 TT are well known for this and there was a recall for it. The cure I believe is a new instrument cluster. Cheers Steve
  22. Last week
  23. No worries Gareth, I was told at the time hard wiring them would fix it, I don’t know much about motor mechanics and just went with what was suggested, luckily it’s been put back correctly. There’s got to be someone out there who can sort it for me.
  24. Did you have them to remove the other rear tyre and check that for damage and balance Kieron? Kind regards, Gareth.
  25. Have a look at this thread on.hete, as it'll help 🙂 cheers Steve
  26. Glad you've got it booked in. It could be but better wait to see what the garage says 👍 Cheers Steve
