  1. A4 AVANT Battery Life

    If it aint broke............................................
  2. A4 B7 reverse lights problem :(

    The switches can be temperamental with regard to the depth they are screwed into the casing. Also, the lights are actually switched via the convenience module in the car to give a delay on the lights coming on (done so that autos did not switch the lights when moving the selector from park to drive) Sadly, it could be the module that is causing the issue.
  3. 1996 A4 starting problem

    Poor battery connection to either earth or the starter solenoid.
  4. My 2004 A3 DSG had the hold the upshift to return to auto, on all of the three gearboxes it had...............

  7. Pulsing acceleration only when engine labours

    Not that then. Sticking EGR valve?
  8. Pulsing acceleration only when engine labours

    Do you have a variable geometry turbo on that car? If so is the actuator sticking/stiff/u-s?
  9. Bleeping sound coming from the boot.

    Internal battery on the alarm unit is sha***d and it talking to you to tell you.

    From January this year it is. Any vehicle fitted as standard with a cat must have the cat fitted and working (paraphrased)

  13. Go drive it in third at about 50 mph on the dual to regenerate the DPF. That is when DPF light comes on. Mind you I had a 170 for 5 years and never had the DPF light on .................. ever. Get it warm and give it an Italian tune. Actuall that's what you should have done every month.................now I guess its a garage forced regeneration if you are lucky. If not an expensive new DPF will be yours...................

    You have used your spare key (swapped keys) and that has the 16 degree setting 'on it'.
  18. Insurance Query

    What are the implications of not garaging the car occasionally despite stating to insurance company that the car is normally garaged at night? I appreciate the word normally is important here. If away from home then the risk is covered 'on the street' as it were but what about at home? If you empty the loft into the garage for sorting before binning for instance, or decorating lounge and putting furniture in the garage for say, a week? Thanks

    Dismissive? Of Alex the Arsehole? Jumped up little sixth former in a suit looking for a job interview - Sincere apologies to all sixth form students, in suits, looking for employment.
  22. The joy of car cleaning in Scotland

    Sky News is an unknown medium...................... However, I hope you are right despite the extra money south of the border would be welcome. Scotland on its own would be a basket case (read Greece, Ireland etc.) within 5 years. This from a proud Scot............
  23. The joy of car cleaning in Scotland

    Yeah, but after you go independent you won't be able to afford to wash it! Repeat after me 'Salmond is a miguided fool' He is going to ruin MY country.......................
