    Audi A3 8P 56 Plate Nav DVD Issue

    eBay is where I got mine (although not sure if RNS version will make a difference). Also worth noting that sometimes the DVD ejection is locked so hopefully you don't already have a disc in there. Sent from my M2007J17G using Tapatalk

    Car Battery suggestions/advice (low usage)

    Morning all, the battery had given up on my S3 (actually think it's the original a MOLL). I've been looking at replacing it with the varta E44 which a few people seem to recommend round here. The question is that now my job seems to be WFH and going forward I may end up only driving my car...

    tfsi (all) intake leak fix, I thought should be shared

    This dipstick is a common issue by the looks of things (check the sticky preventative maintenance). I recently had to replace mine as the plastic just feel apart as I pulled it out to check the oil level. Sent from my M2007J17G using Tapatalk

    Old Style HPFP Removal Help Please!

    If you're inspecting or changing the cam follower you don't need to disconnect the line on the left of that (or at least I didn't). I did it at the weekend for the first time, hardest part of the whole job is getting the engine cover off, almost gave myself a hernia.

    Old Style HPFP Removal Help Please!

    What engine? I can only talk for the 2.0 TFSI, but you only need to disconnect one line to replace the cam follower. Not sure if it's any help, but only thing I can think it is from what you're doing is 4:05 in this video () Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    Audi S3 (8P) dipstick part number?
