    Anyone had coil pack failures?

    My first thought was that not all 4 would fail but my own OBD Eleven was showing missfires in all cylinders in live data

    Anyone had coil pack failures?

    2016 1.4TFSI 25,000m. Car was misfiring so checked with OBD Eleven, which showed misfires in all cylinders. Thought it might be a fuel system problem so booked it in to an independent VW/Audi specialist. They replaced all 4 coil packs and plugs. It's perfect now. Anyone else suffered coil pack...

    Trickle charging a stop-start battery

    Thanks for all the replies. I bought the Maypole and both cars absorbed a lot of charge. I now have confidence that I can prevent the batteries from deteriorating during these strange times...

    Trickle charging a stop-start battery

    Not driving much due to lockdown, so have charged my wife's Ibiza battery no problem. I want to charge the A4 but using ordinary chargers is not advised with an AGM battery. I have a charger which has a trickle mode. about 3A max. I can't see that causing any damage for a few hours. What do...

    Lost all DAB reception after frosty morning

    After a really hard frost this week I lost DAB reception but still had AM/FM. I drove about 10 mins and parked the car up in full sun. Went back to the car an hour later and DAB was back. I must admit to using a defrosting technique passed on by an old neighbour many years ago - if the car is...

    Audi A4 Avant TFSI 1.4 2017 Sport fuel economy!

    When I bought my 2016 1.4 about six months ago I was concerned that the fuel economy would be far worse than my previous diesel (Seat Exeo 2.0 143, basically a rebadged A4 B7 with newer engine), however I soon came to the view that MPG was only 10% worse, which works out at similar cost per...

    HI, I posted this in the A4 forum and received a reply recommending that I drop a PM to creweaudiparts, so here is my question: Would a driveshaft from an A4 B9 2.0 fit an A4 B9 1.4, assuming they have the same part number 8W0407271E In other words and in general, can you forget about other...

    Question about part numbers and compatibility?

    Would a driveshaft from an A4 B9 2.0 fit an A4 B9 1.4, assuming they have the same part number 8W0407271E In other words and in general, can you forget about other factors when considering compatibility as long as the part number is identical?

    Audi Ensurance - brilliant free service

    Sounds good. I usually take the optional legal cover with my insurance at £20 -£25 extra, as I used it once and was glad that I paid for it. If I take Ensurance, presumably this means that I can drop legal cover with my main insurer?

    Sound disappeared from Android Auto Google Maps turn-by-turn?

    Oh dear, egg on my face (sort of). I tried Google navigation again. Radio was on normal volume and when the silent pause started before a turning, I turned the volume up quite a lot. Turn-by-turn navigation audio could then be heard. I thought that when the voice had finished, the radio would be...

    Sound disappeared from Android Auto Google Maps turn-by-turn?

    Done all that but no luck. It sounds like things won't be back to normal until there is another Android Auto update.
