  1. Hi its a Hydro mount for the engine, these are oil filled and when the rubber reservoir deteriorates they start to loose oil, yours does not look terminal yet but it will need changing as they only get worse and you will experience a lot of engine vibration. Steve.

  2. My car had a similar issue,it started with a message saying key not recognised. So replaced the battery in both fobs. The message still came up. Two days later took the car to work however when I returned to the car I had the same issues you are describing, no power to start the car hand brake on etc. The car was in warranty and it took Audi 2 weeks to sort it out. Diagnostics didn’t show up any faults and they eventually replaced the convenience module which they assured me would cure the problem, it didn’t , then replace the 12v battery in the boot and problem solved with no further issue hope this helps

  4. Hello whoever-you-are. You set this forum an impossible task by not even outlining the minimum of detail - not even your name! Could you start again, by including your name, location, vehicle details inc. engine size petrol/diesel, mileage, history of service, when it was last serviced, whether any advisories on MOT etc. etc. I’m sure someone will then be able to help you, once you’ve helped us to help you. Perhaps you would also be kind enough to have a look at the forum rules. Kind regards, Gareth.

  5. Hi the units are not that expensive, DIY is possible but you will need two robust trolley jacks and a nice wide piece of wood to support the engine on one of the jacks, to my mind a garage with a four post ramp is a better proposition as it looks as though its very accessible from the picture and they will have a hydraulic cradle to support the engine whilst standing upright to do the job.

  6. Excellent advice, cheers. The wishbones have been hanging round my thoughts since I had it serviced at the vag independent shortly after buying. Did find it shocking that not even 40k miles and such an expensive maybe unnecessary repair was suggested. Gearbox and diff definatly need to seek specialist advice. 8 speed auto box changes with no issues and probably spending money that I don't need to so gonna do some further investigation.

  8. If I understand your post correctly, they other vents blow hot and cold air (depending on the temp setting on the climate control) but the driver's side is stuck on low? If so, I had the same problem. The problem is a motor that's bolted on the heater core (behind the centre console, on the driver's side) has failed. This motor controls a plastic arm that move the flap controlling the flow of hot air to the vent (there are 3 motors that control the temp for the various vents independently). The part itself cost around £170 (part is 'V159 control motor' for the driver side). Labour was around 2.5 hours. It cost me around £450 in total to fix it. You will need to find a garage that has the Vag.com or VCDS software though, as they need to perform a 'basic setting' on the part to sync it to the system. A decent VAG specialist garage should have this software. Technically, the whole dash is supposed to come out to reach the part (going by the book), but a mechanic can get away with removing just the lower part of the drivers side dash and get enough space to replace the part (it's a tight fit though). There is a good video guide on youtube is you search for it.

  13. Hello Matt, Yes, of course - you are certainly welcome to advertise your car on the forum. Just provide a fullest of descriptions of the car that you can, and ideally some photographs. Also post the price you want for it. Do not include any phone or e Mail contact details since this is an open forum. Interested buyers will be able to contact you via. a PM. Good luck and kind regards, Gareth.

  14. Hi guys, I am new to this site as I recently purchased my 2003 B6 A4 1.9tdi and she has 170,000 miles on the clock so an you can imagine fairly riddled with issues. I am a qualified mechanic but with only a year or so garage experience and finding these cars fairly complicated to work on. Guess that the beauty of these Audi's haha. I would love to meet some other locals around Bristol with these models/engines so that we might be able to share some in site on them and would love to meet some one with a VAG-COM would I would be more than willing to pay to scan my car for me as I am currently experiencing electronic issues and somthing that I am not so confident with. I am fairly capable when it comes to mechanical fix's and would be more than willing to trade time with any one that can help me out or money if they would rather! I hope to make some friends on here as my current friends have little to know car knowledge and I find my self relying on Google far to much. Cheers Ronan

  15. Audi recalls approximately 5,000 A8 automobiles with V8 TDI engine in Europe. As a result of extensive technical investigations, Audi has determined that a software update is required for its Audi A8 model (type D4) with the 4.2-liter TDI V8 engine with Euro 6 certification.

  17. Glad you have seen an improvement. I passed that little gem forward from @Stevey Y The next thing I was going to suggest was giving the MAF sensor a clean with the stuff from Liquid Moly. This too made a huge difference to my previous car, when I had nothing to go on from the scan. I'd also recommend using Archoil fuel additive.

  20. This place is amazing (North London) picks your car up and drops it back off (for free) likes to explain everything in detail and isn't talking bull like I know other garages do and have done to me. Patrick like to speak to all his customers face to face and very reassuring and great guy and goes out his way to do thing's for you, worked for Audi for years so you know you can trust him with your car, fully competent, 10/10 for customer service and the work that he's done. He's genuine and doesn't try to get money out of you, (he told me to research things on Google and forums and see if I can do bit's myself to save some money) http://www.automotivecomponentsspecialist.com/ 020 3532 1275
