  1. Past hour
  2. Yes! Now we're talking. That's a lovely mk2 Ghia. Plenty of poke. Never owned any of the 3 litres before. To be honest this is my first Injection, I had Lasers before that. You must have really loved that Trans-Am! And a mk1 too. That looks like it was a while back. They can fetch crazy money now, closest I've ever got is the model on the living room bookcase 🤣 Admittedly the injection isn't entirely stock from a cosmetic standpoint, but I think it's still a looker. Not bad for an old Ford pushing 40. I've a bit of bodywork to do to it over the winter, nothing too major. The A6 does all the parts running.
  3. Yes....slow lane with the hgv's...at about 57mph....regularly had 74.3 now as few more miles and recent service, 81.3mpg.....and 74 on dual carriegeways.
  4. Unfortunately the seller has ignored all my messages and calls
  5. Today
  6. Hello Aigars, You really need a meter to check voltages/continuities rather than just changing bits and pieces ( except perhaps bulbs and fuses). We take it you’ve checked the associated fuse-? , but probably on the same circuit as the side lights, so no need - but consult to handbook for confirmation. It would be worth pulling back the covering off the harness that links the body to the tailgate/ boot, to check for any wire breakages - a common issue point. Kind regards, Gareth.
  7. It certainly was! 35 degrees! Jack took his TT for multiple runs down the strip. I'll ask him to upload them as they're all on his phone.
  8. Hello Jon, Sorry to hear of your issue. Ref. ‘………or are you just here to be condescending …..’ comment. Based on my experience on this forum, no poster has ever previously been questioned of being so, and without ‘taking sides’, I would defend the actions of contributors who give up their valuable time to assist those who are in difficulties and wish to have their issues solved remotely, and without any, or at least minimum expense. As with many forums-? We have a over-riding predominance of posters who wish to tap into free advice, yet it would be difficult to count a handful of folks who regularly try to help out - more often than not, in situations of vague or minimum description of symptoms, so it would be good if this was taken into consideration in your particular case. I’m certain that the need to engage politeness is mentioned in the Forum Rules, so it would be great if any personal slights were avoided. Just as an aside, in my experience, when such comments arise, the ‘accuser’ has already lost the battle so to speak, and puts themselves in a disadvantaged situation going forward. Still. Apologies for having to to take the role of Moderator, but I’m sure you will understand the need in this case Jon. Many thanks and kind regards, Gareth. p.s. On a progressive note, ‘…..the garage…’ Is this garage a diesel specialist? If not, I would be making local enquires to find such a specialist - who should be able to diagnose the issue for you, and you can then decide what you are going to do.
  9. Yesterday
  10. I have an audi a3 2010 model does anyone know why I have rear speakers in the door panels but they are not wired up took both back door panels of and I can not find any wires to power them so do I need to wire them up from my head unit.Has this happened to anyone else does anyone have any ideas please
  11. Changed the key receiver also but problem still persists
  12. You're welcome. Parts might be your best bet as I know they definitely have schematics or they did when I worked at Volkswagen.
  13. I'd recommend a diagnostic check or for an auto electrican to take a look as it sounds like it could be a wiring issue.
  14. Welcome to the forum you'll find the members on here are a friendly and helpful bunch 🙂 great to see another 300k+ car on here. My A6 has done 341k with my dad and I as the only owners. Going to Germany next month in it! I find there's always some preventative maintenance required once you hit such high mileage.
  15. Well, Kids are all left home, a Rav4 and a big ol' estate seems a bit much. As much as I love the car, it makes sense for me to downsize as it will be only me in it now (maybe to a lovely old landrover) - but here we go. It's sitting at 104000 miles at the moment. Never missed a service - I have all the stamps upto a year after I bought it when I serviced it myself - full services each time (receipts available) - if you check the MOT you'll see some advisories - these have all been rectified. I am looking for £14000ono. It is well-loaded as you'll see below. I would contemplate a p/x or swap for a county/defender or series landy. All standard kit as per the spec for this, plus all these add-ons: Audi Parking System Advanced with rear reversing camera Adaptive cruise control (ACC) with braking guard, Audi side assist and Audi active lane assist with pre-sense plus Camera and or distance sensor Audi pre sense plus Park assist Audi side and lane assist Adaptive cruise control Sports seats Front sports seats Front centre armrest for driver and front passenger, movable and with adjustable angle Electric 4-way lumbar support <p> <span>Adaptive light and high-beam assist, including bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime-running lights, LED tail lights and headlight washers</span> </p> Xenon Plus lighting Windscreen wiper interm.

  16. Hello Trevor, Just wondering if this post can be flipped to always show the latest page (21 at the moment) rather than Post no.1 first. Many thanks and kind regards, Gareth.
  17. Hello GEM (?). If you klick on the poster’s profile then the answer will be there for you. Sold 2nd June last year. Kind regards, Gareth.
  18. Hello Andrew, Thanks for joining and posting you plea. When you say the oil warning light came on, and you talking oil level warning light, or oil pressure warning light? If it was indeed the oil level light, and you put 1 ltr in from half full, then I wouldn’t expect it to now be overfilled. Does it have a dip stick?? - possibly not if it has an electronic level display. Anyway - as Mike says if it has a dip stick, but I would check first thing in the morning before starting the engine - car on level ground. If no stick - same procedure but check the electronic displayed level before starting after its been standing overnight. Apologies for being direct, but are you from the school of total reliance and faith by acting at a point where a warning light appears, rather than regularly checking the level of a morning? Kind regards, Gareth.
  19. I'd say you're right. I've looked up up online. When I get back I'll go through the motions and if need be I'll get it. I'll let you know how I get on 👍🏻
  20. Sorry, yes, I should have posted about it. turned out it was a sensor that had failed (not the one I thought it was) the garage said it was a boost control sensor, but that is the only info I have
  21. Hello everyone, I had the same problem as you guys. No data transfer at all. No traffic updates, no Google search, 3G logo was there but no internet connection what so ever. Not even able to delete the key user to complete the factory reset. All pointing to an issue with eSIM in the car. Dealer was clueless and less than helpful. Took me 3 days to convince them this is a real issue (you don't really want to know the dirty details). Anyways, after feeding the dealer with lots of forum discussions and proving that 100s of owners having the same issue, they finally contacted Germany tech and within half a day they instructed the dealer to change two components J949 and J533 and everything was back to normal. Not sure what these parts are but seems like related to the eSIM. Attached you can see the repair report. Hope this helps the ones experiencing the same problem as mine.

  22. Last week
  23. Hi Jack So there was more to the story which has disappeared from this thread. I took the car to another garage with better diagnostics etc, a German car specialist. They replaced the crankshaft sensor again and advised what my garage had installed was a cheap copy and useless, they also replaced the glow plugs. Car ran fine until a week ago, new set of symptoms and different codes etc but drivable for now. Hope you get it sorted 👍 Cheers Jon
  24. Audi technician……..now there’s an interesting thought……… Gave you incorrect information, and stung you for the part, it’s such a shame the dealers don’t match the quality of the vehicles, and that is the reason I have p/x my Q5 and moved on, voted with my feet 🤣😂
  25. You'll need the modules and for them to be coded in to the car.
  26. It might be the light circuit board that's failed. You'll need to remove the light to inspect it. Or get a diagnostic check.
  27. All the best Larry. Sorry you've had such a negative experience with the main dealers. Thanks for being part of the club 🙂
