AUDI A6 Headlight washer pump not working

I got my 2000 audi A6 2.7T back in October and is my first audi. I am working out some minor things and using this board as a valuable resource. Just for starters the windshield washer pump works fine. When I took out the inner wheel well liner I noticed the plug for the headlight washer plug was dangling free. I removed the tank and discovered there wasnt a headlight washer pump and the hole where

Is the water line blocked. Maybe the original started leaking does happen so the guy removed it then blocked the line rather than replace the pump You tested the pump OK. Put a multimeter on the connector and have someone run the fluid. Is there power at the connector Also maybe the engine has to be running for it to work

When I tested the new pump on the car plugged into the headlight washer pump connector I didnt have the water line hooked up so there wasnt anything obstructing the pump from operating. It doesnt seem like there is power going to the plug. I had put the headlight pump on the windshield connector just to verify it would work too. I will try it with the engine running but with the key on to turn on the

AUDI A6 headlight washer cap problem

my headlight washer cap fell of one day....so i ordered another one and tried putting it on.. it was loose and realized that the why the first one fell off was that the there are suppose to be what i believe two plastic prong like things that are suppose to go in little holes on wither side of the bottom whats of the cap. a easy way of making sure that the cap doesnt fly off again.. GLUE

Well of course you dont want to glue in vain... Whats holding you from actually figuring out how exactly the cap mounts on the washer and how the washer is seated intoonto the bumper I don have headlight washers on my car so I have never seen one either. What year is your car We can figure out from VagCat or from some parts site with a pic of the actual washer if nobody else with a model that has washers

my drivers side nozzle was cracked and whenver i use the headlight washers the drivers side cap and top of the nozzle would fly out one day i forgot about it as i was pressed the winshield washer thing i saw the sht fly off i went back and only found the cap so i just supper-glued it to the bumper im planning on removin the nozzles completely one day anyway they just make a bigger mess

I used clear silicone adhesive on mine. in my case the headlight washer was missing one of the prongs on the side of it which hold the cap to the washer. silicone the cap to where the missing prong would be. problem solved.

If memory serves (IF) theyre behind the left front tire inside the fender. Need to pull the fender liner out for access. The headlight washer pump should be the one with the bigger hose. The easiest way to change the nozzle is pull the front bumper cover off. They come off fairly simple.

AUDI A6 C5 Audi A6 C5 Avant headlamp washer question

Hello guys I have a audi A6 C5 Avant 2.8 quattro bought second hand and the headlamp washers do not work. Ive looked at the front - and the washers are OK themselves - but the hose that should lead liquid to them goes nowhere - if I put compressed air in that hose - that raises the washers. The question is - is the washer reservoir the same on models with headlamp washers and without Do I need another

Thanks for the reply Ill have a closer look. Not that I need the headlight washers but having them available and them not working is frustrating.

Quote Originally Posted by infestdead Thanks for the reply Ill have a closer look. Not that I need the headlight washers but having them available and them not working is frustrating. They are nice in winter conditions but they use a boatload of fluid with each wash. They are designed to only work when the headlights are on and you use the windshield washers.

AUDI A4 B5 Headlight Washer turned into fountain

Hi guys My passenger side headlight washer has recently turned into a fountain. It no longer aims at the headlight itself but just shoots wiper fluid up instead. Its cold out now so I dont have the patience to stand out there for a long time to see whats wrong with it but when I did it seems to be working properly except for the aim. Has anyone else experienced this Itll likely be a spring project once the weather gets warmer.

When you pull off the cover youll probably find the little sockets the ball-shaped nozles are in is cracked. The ball-nozle shoots out and youve got your symptoms. I bought these for 34...replaced both of mine a few weeks ago. So far so good. New audi A4 A6 headlight washer Sprayer Nozzle Fits Left or Right eBay

AUDI A6 Windshield washer fluid level...

Hi everyone the other day the dash light for the windshiled washer fluid level came on. Well the connector to the headlight was loose. Fixed that and filled it back up. Unfortunately the dash light will not go off. Its topped off I noticed there is an upper and lower tank. Looks to me theyre both full. I tried resetting the check lights but it wont go off. Is there any special procedure to turn the

I only have to refill the tank for the icon to turn off. No reset necessary. It sounds like the sensor for picking up fluid level is not working. Maybe you knocked something loose when you were messing with the headlight wire.

AUDI A6 Dyamic headlight range control faulty

The warning is now on permanently. It was intermittent a couple months ago and my indie cleared the code but it came back last week. The error is with the left front headlight which I was told means the headlight assembly has to be replaced. Thats a little pricey. Does anyone know how to suppress this stupid icon -- or even all the yellow warnings that pop in the upper center computer readout I can

There is no way that I have been able to find to disable the warning light for the range control or windsheild washer fluid level. I have both on more or less permenently. I can fill the washer fluid reservoir and that will get rid of the warning light for a couple of days then the fluid all leaks out of somewhere and the light comes back on. Wait - I know -- remove the level sensor wire it in the full position then stuff it back in Now for that pesky range sensor....

AUDI A6 C5 Considering buying a 2001 Audi A6 - AWD

I am considering buying a 2001 audi A6 AWD. I live in an area where it snows a lot and I travel to the mountains almost every weekend. I think this would be a good car for what I need but I would like to get the experts opinion. I usually work on my own cars I would be mostly paying for parts when I do maintenance.

AUDI A8 LED Headlight finally

I was surfering the LLTek website because I was looking into updating my grille. I found that they are finally making new LED headlights for the D3. It has not come yet but looks like its in the works. Count me on that. Can not wait to see what they look like. Forgot the website. httpwww.lltek.comaudi_headlights...g_lights_f.htm

1. Your car has automatic headlight onoff feature (with this feature in the Auto position your headlight will turn on automatically when the sensors detect darkness). 2. Your car has automatic rain initiated windshield washers (with this feature your washers will start automatically if the washer stalk is in the Auto position when the sensors detect rain). 3. Your car already has HID Xenon for audi

AUDI A6 New member Question for A6 enthusiasts

Hello Everyone. Im looking into purchasing a Certified pre-owned 2010 audi A6 Premium with 19 Sport package. This is the 3.2 (non-supercharged) I sold my 2007 Infiniti G35-S 6MT Sedan. My question is coming from a RWD if I get the FWD 3.2 am I going to regret not getting 3.0T supercharged quattro AWD instead Also I have read the consumer reviews and everyone tells me audi can be very high maintenance

But I have no qualms about taking a 1200 mile weekend trip in the dead of winter from MI to NY and back and I bought a 2003 A4 3.0 for my youngest daughter that she drives several times a year to college 600 miles away. If you live in the south FWD is probably fine. If you live where it snows buy a quattro. 3.2 vs 3.2T is kind of personal choice -- I like the 2.7T and chipped it. But my next audi

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Retrofitting headlight washer system

There is one glaring omission as far as I am concerned in regards to options. That is the headlight washer system especially on vehicles with HID lights. As far I know the only way to get that system in the US anyway is to get a Summit or SRT. You dont know how nice that is until you have had it. I have had a few drives in the mountains at night with my 98 Jimmy where I had to pull over to clean snow

AUDI A6 C6 Noobie Audi A6 C6 Questions

Hello All Just purchased an 06 A6 Quattro S-line and had a few questions as I was not given an owners manual 1- What does the button on the right side of the steering wheel and the left side of the volume key do...I dont have tech package on this car...was this the voice command button that is inactive in my model 2- Are headlight washers standard in the A6 and if so how do I activate them 3- The side

1 - It is the voice command button 2 -headlight washers were part of the s-line package. They are automatically activated when the headlights are on and the windshield washer fluid is activated from the stalk. 3- There is no light that comes on when the mirror defrosters are activated. 4 - The upgrade is softer leather. The standard leather is just the seating surfaces. The upgrade leather also put

AUDI A6 need a new car. new to VWAudi. A6 a good choice

hello everyone Looking for a midsize four door car on Craigslist and found a 2003 2.7T A6 with autoquattro and it looks nice from the ad though Ive yet to look at it in person. Wasnt necessarily for or opposed to VWs even though my only experience with the brand were with friends 90s Jettas who seemed super prone to electrical gremlins and window regulator failures Mileage is 97k and seller is asking

Regardless of brand its an 8 year old car with 100k miles. Have it checked out by someone who knows audis and negotiate down whatever you find. You yourself need to test every accessory and button - radio windows heated seats heat cold headlight washers etc. There are a lot of extras on these cars that can fail. Test drive it for at least 50 miles to give CELs a chance to pop. Turbos can indeed be

AUDI A6 C5 looking at 04 A6 2.7..any good are they bad

Hi everyone how are you just wanted to get your opinion on these cars...how is the 2.7L twin turbo engine pretty good reliable any issues are they pretty good on fuel does it have a timing belt or chain I read a bit on this modelyear and seemed to have good review but wanted to make sure... thanks fabs

206k on original turbos shocks even battery. All gauges and pixels work. I plan on spending about 2kyear on maintenance and repairs and it is well worth it for a luxury car especially with no car payment. With quattro this thing rides like it is on rails around curves. It can cruise effortlessly at 60-100 mph. With a chip it moves very well for a two ton car but you wont mistake it for a vette. On the downside the headlight washers always leaked so I shut them off (note I bought the car used at 37k miles). After I chipped it I had to replace clutch and flywheel. I recently replaced the coil packs under recall and the cats - but I cannot get the cat CEL to go off. I also have a failing SAIU. These effect emissions a little but not mileage or performance. I do all the necessary and some extra maintenance like replace the tranny and diffy fluids every 60k. I am on the fence about replacing the shocks since they seem a little soft but my indie shop tells me they are not leaking and look fine so I will save myself that 1k for a little longer. If you want the same luxury but a sportier ride look at the A4 and S4. Surprisingly they are within 300 lbs of the A6 but feel a lot smaller (at least the older ones like my 2003 A4 3.0 MT6).

AUDI A6 Interested in new A6..help

Hey everyone. im new to the forum. im a GM guy. always had GM vehicles. always had SUVs and sports cars. past list of vehicles are 2002 tahoe 1999 camaro 1999 trans am 2002 escalade 2002 STS 2007 H2 2012 tahoe 2010 camaro ss. I currently have the 2012 tahoe and 2010 camaro SS....im looking to dump my tahoe after less than a year of having it. my H2 i had before the tahoe was jacked up and was alot

time. Im just under 210k miles. Thats not to say I have not put money into it clutch and flywheel cats replaced. She generally runs me 1000-1500year in maintenance or repairs. The newer A6s are much higher rated for reliability and avoiding the turbo engines eliminates the fearexpense of blown turbos. If you are looking new or lightly used just have it thoroughly checked out by someone who knows audis.

AUDI washer resevior empties out

Hello new owner of a 2001 2.7t allroad. Awesome car but a problem had returned.When i bought car a about 6 months ago the car wouldnt keep and fluid in washer tank for windsheild. It would empty out after turning car off. Took back to dealer and they fixed it. Turns out it was for the water to shoot out on the headlites.Now it has come back and the dealer said we didnt use washer fluid that wouldnt

I have the similar problem of fluid leaking out all the time. My garage floor is getting a permanent blue stain. My mechanic was fixing the same problem on an A6...the headlight washer jet. He says thats almost always the problem. I was able to get my hand in back of the headlight (no easy task) and found a leak at the base of the washer. Its getting fixed soon.

AUDI A6 Audis are overengineered poss

As much as I love driving my stage. 1 a6 2.7t the 1 month out of the year it actually runs with no issues Ill never buy another audi again. Lets see...the constant failing factory a.d aftermarket parts impossible to diagnose problems(which can involve spending a load of money replacing the 20 diff things that could be the problem until you buy the right one) and too.many more.issues to list replaced

Nice rant and I can feel your pain. But did you buy an abused baby or have you been kicking the crap out of it Admittedly there are a lot of things that can go wrong but basic preventive maintenance reduces it. Ive done all the maintenance and at 214k I have replaced the clutch and flywheel (3k) and the cats (2.5k and a waste of effort still coding). Everthing else has been maintenance a couple TB

AUDI A6 reliability of a 2.7t

im in the works of buying a 2001 2.7t. first of all just to make sure it is a twin turbo some people i know argue with me that bi turbo is different then twin turbo and that there is only one turbo. also im wondering how reliable these cars really are ive read a ton of different stuff from they are the most inexpensive and best car to it being a complete night mare. im trying to have the benifit of

Three years and 81k miles (37->118k) and the only unexpected problem was the alternator dying at the exact moment I impacted a pothole at 70k. I was out of town and the local stealer quoted 1200 but I negotiated and bought a re-manufactured alternator and had him do the work total 600. Would have been 200 less if I could have driven it home to my local independent. Other than that chipped at 74k

BMW SERIES 3 E46 3-Series vs Audi A4

So I know this is probably the thousandth post about the two cars in comparison but I checked and want information a little more specific to my situation... Right now I have an audi A4 (1999 1.8T) Quattro. I have had it for almost 8 months and have only driven it (or been able to) for about 2. The reliability of it is horrid. I just replaced the headlights (I basically had two sets of fog lights...)

AUDI A4 B6 Is 190k to many miles

Found a screaming deal on an 6spd 3.0 but it has 190k on the clock. Did several hours of research on this motor since I dont know much about it compared to the 1.8s but I didnt find anything that spoke to super high mileage 3.0s... I mean at what point do you just through up your arms and rebuildreplace it This one had a new timing belt installed at 100k so its due for another one....thoughts

engine that is properly maintained should last a long time. However approaching 200k is always a risk. It certainly needs a timing belt (with all tensioners etc) and probably some solid maintenance like replacing brake tranny and differential fluids. The catalytic converters could be a real expensive risk if your state requires them to be functional. A thorough inspection by someone who knows audis
