    Hi Steve.

    Yes I understand .

    I did have to replace a pair on a Camry I had I just traded it in

    last week for the A5.

    I had it from new in 1996 till last week lol  127k on it.

    They seemed to be ok .

    The A5 is still very new to me.

    I wish it had a handbrake lol,

    I think its best I take a damper off and see it its tired.

    Nice to have this place to help me out.

    I am for sure a Newbie with the A5

    Take care thanks for the assistance

    I just re-read and saw you were going to rebuild. Good I'm glad!

    Damn had realised you had factory fitted xenon's on your narrow body. Would have bought them and the headlight washer system to go with it.

    Hi Steve.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The existing ones seem to hold the long boot up once its

    part lifted manually.

    I just got this A5 on friday. its a 15 plate with 50k on the clock.

    mint condition.

    Reading all the problems quoted on here I am getting nervous. lol.

    If I replace them I may go for the spring loaded in any case .

    I will keep the forum up to date as I go

    If it's the spring loaded ones I'm thinking of that give auto boot opening function be careful. Quality can be questionable. I've seen cases on the A6 c5 groups of them failing inside 3 months.

    I have a 2016 3litre TDI sport.my nav system is not not working MMI says not enabled when I press the nav button.I have tried the system reboot and the nav initialises then goes on to the data not enabled message.

    any suggestions would be most appreciated.


    I'd recommend a diagnostic check to see if any fault codes flag up

    Hi Steve

    I've sent a few messages to this thread, offering the engine from an A6 (AKE) Is this any good? Engine will be £500 minus the fuel pump. I read that you needed a new engine for yours?

    Hi Rich, 

    Apologies I'd missed your post. Thank you for the offer. I think at this stage I'm going to look at getting mine rebuilt hopefully. 

    I saw your a6 on Facebook. Shane the gearbox has gone looks in good shape. Steering wheel is nice.
