  1. Hello does anyone know if servotronic was an option on the 2002 S6 avant , my wife's has recently felt a bit stiff in the steering so i decided to check it through .According to Elsawin its controlled by unit J236 in position 13 of the relay box under the drivers side lower dash panel , i don't think the lower dash panel has ever been off . I was surprised to find no relay and no wires to postion 13 fitted by the factory . I thought the servotronic was standard ? or was delete an option ? Thanks

    That would be brilliant, the replacement used dash and the ecu are supposed to be back with me tomorrow from a tuner who said they could recode the dash ( preferred option ) but now say they can't as it encrypted ? Or just remove the immoboliser from the ecu , where do I send them and whats the approximate cost please , I can post you the clocks old and replacement and the ecu , thanks again .

    ha ha basically someone who has limited knowledge and equipment messing about
  4. Wonder if anyone can help point me in the right direction of a specialist or even the correct software . I have VCDS which isn't any use apparently . To cut a long story short the convertible suffered a massive electrical spike due to a Fred in a shed . This damaged a number of controllers and modules all of which are now sorted except the dash cluster . After an extensive search of breakers finally got the exact part number , however on attempting to start the ECU doesn't recognize the dash and wont allow engine start.(engine start blocked by immobilizer) A specialist tuner said they could get the pin from the ecu and program the dash but now they say they cant . The original dash is useless and has lost information according to the repair specialist it was originally sent to. I have seen loads of tools that apparently remove the immobilizer function via the OBD port anyone any experience of these ? any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  10. front brake pipe?

    Thanks to all who replied and Ian and Dave at A8 parts . Audi Newcastle by the time i tried to stop the order already had them still, they were good enough to arrange some discount on service items to cover the costs . they do not contain any fluid and do not seem to have purpose but hey they are nice and new now !
  11. front brake pipe?

    Thanks yes thats them , the pipes that bend and return . do they actually contain fluid ?
  12. front brake pipe?

    Hello Just had an pre MOT inspection on 96 4.2 Q , The tester commented that the Front brake "link " pipes on the back of the caliper were Rusty . I thought this would be just an easy make a couple of new pipes , however they appear to be just a return which has some sort of "banjo " bolt not proper ends . Thus i ordered from Audi Newcastle , the parts guy rang back yesterday (week after order and payment but still on 2 week back order) and said these brake pipes we have ordered i am not sure they are brake pipes ! :mad: I think the car has the Lucas caliper anyone any ideas ? Thanks in anticipation
