  4. Front end removal

    pictures! 2 hoses going in to the left of my basin are abs fluid so i think i'll just disconnect them at the two clamps shows and try get new clamps for refitting? The real problem: these pipes going in here? Are they airconditioning ones? What can I do with them? air con on the right...... Coolant ones on the left?? And from below:
  5. Front end removal

    Hi, i'm currently removing the full front end of my Audi A8 but have come across some problems at the final hurdle. I've been following Paul Waterloo's tech article on how to do it - found here: audipages Front End Removal I have everything off ready for the front end to drop off, i've just left it sitting on the front bumper shock absorber bolts. My problem is that I want to remove the front end completely but I'm left with the air con rad connections, abs fluid cooler connections and what i think is some sort of other coolant connections. What is the best way to remove these? Can I remove the air con connections? Wont that just depressure my system and then i'll have to get the air con system overhauled? I take it Paul just left his connected and dropped it to the deck as shown in his first pic on his article? I've looked at doing this with mine but I think the car is too far off the ground for the air con hoses to reach that and I really need it right out of the way so that I can get a 15 tonne crane i'm going to be using right in! I have some pics that i'll upload just now Cheers Andrew

  12. Subframe diagrams

    When it says attaching to the rear of the engine, i'm guessing it doesnt just mean lifting it by the 4 engine holes on the block? Does it mean you must also lift it from somewhere else aswell? I'll take pics of the 4 engine holes I was going to put U-bolts through and then use four 1 tonne slings and attach them to a 15 tonne engine crane that I am getting a lend of. I'll send you a pm with my e-mail address. Thanks for the help!
  13. Subframe diagrams

    Ska, where are you getting these instructions from? ETKA? Autodata? ELSA? Anyone know what sort of weight the 4.2 v8 engine and 4 speed box is? I'm looking into getting an engine crane and i'm not sure whether to get a 2 or 1 tonne crane Cheers
  14. Subframe diagrams

    Thanks Ska, is there any instructions on the correct way to support the engine/gearbox while you remove the subframe?
  15. Subframe diagrams

    Hi, I am wondering if someone could help me out. I need to know if the mount from the back of the subframe to the chassis comes out and if so how? I have taken the plate that connects the subframe to the chassis off and I can see that there are two blocks of metal and then the captive nut is at the top. Any diagrams or info on this setup would be appreciated. Cheers Andrew
