    hazard switch illuminates while car is locked.

    The hazard switch stays illuminated as you said for 30 seconds then switches off. Sounds like you have a current draw somewhere draining off the battery. You need to get an ammeter hooked up to the car and see whats being drawn out the battery with the car all locked up.

    Changing a rear brake hose...

    If you get a new hose it should come with the banjo bolt and seals all ready on the hose to fit, I know the genuine ones do as I fitted new rear hoses to my A4 a few weeks back. I would say rear wheel off, arch liner out to get to the union on the metal brake pipe into the hose at the body side...

    anyone got an avant with space saver spare?

    The car by the chassis number and PR codes was fitted from the factory with the 5 spoke 17"s and a full size spare alloy. The previous owner also had an S4 which he had tuned up and fitted bigger brakes too but the factory S4 18"s didn't fit over the brakes so fitted them to his other car, which...

    Factory Fitted Rear Sun Blinds - Securing Clip

    If you mean the window blinds in the rear door and the two clips at the top of the window frame that hold the blind up. I think you can get them on there own from an Audi dealer. I am sure I had a car at work the other day with one broken also and we priced a new one up for the customer (I work...

    will audi oem locking wheel bolts...........

    I don't think BBS LM's were ever a standard or optional extra alloy for Audi. If i remember rightly I think I possibly read somewhere once BBS alloys have the OE radius seat instead of aftermarket taper seat on most aftermarket alloys.

    will audi oem locking wheel bolts...........

    The seat of the face is wrong. OEM are a ball seat, aftermarket wheels are a taper'd seat. Some people do use them but your not getting 100% surface contact so it's advisable to get the correct wheels bolts for the wheels.

    A/C Part No needed

    True. You can fit it ok without the valve though I am sure you can get them separately as you can get the valve cores for the service points on there own.

    A/C Part No needed

    I think you can get the valves separately from Audi, I would try first. A normal tyre valve wouldn't be any good as I doubt the seals would be ok with aircon gas and oil.
