AUDI A3 leaking radiator in my A3 Faulty clips

First off I do love my car but I do have my doubts on how long it will last... My most recent problem is a leaking radiator at 65000 miles. Its being fixed under my audi 100000 mile warrentee( certified used had 15000 miles at purchase). I seem to remember that there are possibly faulty harness clips that can rub and slow punchure the radiator from my model year but I cannot seem to find the technical

Its being replaced under warrentee thank God anybody else with radiator problems

update Inskip replaced the radiator and replaced poorly designed wireharness clips (2006 model year) that rub and punchure radiator take care all

FYI radiators are generally considered a 100K part on BMWs (the plastic filler necks get brittle and crack). I havent looked at my audis radiator for that kind of weakness but Id plan on replacement at that interval. 65K does seem early regardless anda failure due to wire harness clips would certainly seem to be a warranty issue. meg123 What was the indication of problems with your camshaft (presumably both of them) and cam runners

camshaft wear started as a ticking noise at about 18000 and slowly became louder till it was replaced at 28000 miles. From what I can remember it was to cam that the high pressure fuel pump runs off of the orginally designed cam was not strong enough and wore prematurely it was an early production 2006 model year issue for A3s and A4s

AUDI A3 II 8P 2009 Audi A3 Radiator replacement

2.0L TFSI engine to be exact. Automatic transmission. Anyone have tips on changing out the radiator I think its just the radiator but will find out tomorrow. Hope no hoses or any other components are also damaged. Ive seen general videos on radiator replacements and it looks pretty simple but any thing I should know specifically about audis to make go smoother. It appears you just remove those three

Anyone Someone has had to have done this work on an A3 or similar model with a 2.0L. Does anyone have the audi A3 repair manual for 2009 that they could send me the instructions for the radiator assemblydisassembly. It would save me 90 and I would really appreciate it.

If you plan on doing the work you should just get the manual. You also should get a VAG. Good luck on your journey

AUDI A3 Audi A3 radiator fan and on dash thermostat troubles. Help

Hi everyone I have a bit of a problem with my 2004 audi A3 1600. The thermostat reads 0 and the radiator fans blow very loud and fast. From outside the car it sounds like a plane To get around the problem I have to drive the car for 10 minutes or until I know it must have warmed up. I turn the car off then back on again. The car then registers its hot - the thermostat registers at 90 degrees and the

AUDI A3 Radiator Replacement

Anybody else ever have a radiator leak with their A3 While on a driving vacation in the Canadian Rockies my coolant warning (big flashing thermometer symbol in the central display) came on when the expansion tank level dropped. The temperature gauge never moved from dead center since the coolant never dropped that far and I was thankful for the early warning. I topped off the tank but it was low again

AUDI A3 II 8P Radiator Fan on 07 2.0 TDI A3 removed from top or bottom

While Im here my radiator fan packed in and I need to switch it out. Haynes Manual says it comes out either the top or bottom depending on model but I dont have access to a repair bay so if its not the top Ill get a garage to do it. Anyone happen to know if it comes out the top or bottom in a 2007 A3 2.0 TDI Save me hoking around to find out.

Not sure what extra plumbing (or less) the TDI may have. I pulled my radiator fan shroud & fans out the bottom of my A3. Looked like too tight a fit to come out the top. I had the car on ramps and it barely came out with a slight tilt to the rear. If the car had been any lower to the ground it would not have come out.

cheers Ill bear that in mind. Also another stupid noob question - the FA3 50A resistor for the fans is located in the engine fusebox according to Haynes manual but I cant see the row of FAx resistors there just the big bunch of FCx ones. Ive a feeling the FAx and FBx sets are hidden underneath but what tool do you need to loosen the plastic board housing the FCx resistors ie the allen key type bolts except theyre shaped for something more like a 6 sided star screwdriver

Torx maybe Have not found any on my audi but then again I havent really taken many parts off. My motorcycle has a nice mixture of metric bolts Allen and Torx fasteners. edit Now that I think about it I have found Torx heads on some audi parts.

Torx they were cheers. Keep the protective under tray on too. Seems I have to take out the air filter first so another noob question - the plastic clipclamp with two protruding fingers that holds the MAF sensor to the big accordion air hose - what is it called and how do you remove it And is it reusable or do I have to fit a new one

AUDI A3 Radiator Leak - caused by fan shroud

Has anyone experienced a problem with the clip that retains the fan electronics wearing a hole in the radiator My 06 3.2l just went out of warranty (52K) and sprung a leak. It turns out the clip that retains the electrical harness for the fan is too close to the radiator and slowly wore a hole in it. It is on the bottom of the radiator near the middle. There are no service bulletins on it but Im wondering if it will start showing up more or if my occurrence was a fluke.

I had a slow radiator leak at 38K miles (discovered while on vacation) but never heard what was the specific cause. It was repaired under warranty by the dealer in Calgary. I later mentined this to my home dealer and the service rep said that there had been a history of radiator leaks on A3s.

I was facing the same problem but it was taken care by my local dealer. u may try the same.

Wonderful that the dealer will do it but when my 2006 A3 developed a radiator leak in Banff (nearest dealer is in Calgary 80 miles away) I needed something NOW Prestone 5050 was available at the local gas station and is described as compatible with all other coolant colors. The Calgary dealer replaced my radiator under warranty and of course refilled with audi coolant. BTW my dealer service advisor

AUDI A3 I 8L Alarm wont shut off after I install new battery (Audi a3 2006)

Hello everyone I just bought a new battery from the dealership for my audi a3 (2006). Problem is when I connect it the car alarm goes off.

AUDI A3 A3 Coolant Problem

Hello I wonder if anyone can give me some pointers advice please Basically Ive recently bought a second hand audi A3 (51 plate - 66000 miles) and its been running fine for the last couple of months although there was a coolant leak when I bought it so this was fixed as it was due to some problem with the radiator or pump or something (apologies but Im not technical as far as cars are concerned) Anyway

Not sure what a 51 plate is so no idea what year your car is. My 2006 A3 developed a radiator leak in the middle of a vacation trip. The dealer in Calgary Canada fixed it under warranty and helped me get a rental car for the two days that it took to fly in the new radiator and make the repairs. They never mentioned an apparent cause but I have heard of other A3s with radiator leaks due to faulty hose

2nd that youve been told wrong. like said them bubbles need to come out and the only way is up and out. on my a3 there is a bleed screw at the bottom of the radiator hose. also have a look at the other hoses there maybe one on there. on previous cars there normally on the matrix hose going through the bulkhead. hope that helps a bit

AUDI A3 A3 Cooling Fan

The cooling fan on my 1998 A3 sezed up and burnt out yesterday. As Im looking to sell the car very soon Id rather not buy a new part.

Upon inspection the Larger of the fans on the dual would fit the mounting points on my single fan radiator and the

AUDI A3 Coolant Leaks only on Long Trips

2006 A3 2.0T Fwd Hi Guys Im having major coolant leaks on long trips (4 hours) and am hoping to shed some light on it.

AUDI A3 Blacking out grill and side marker lights.

Ok so today i decided to black out my grill and those ugly yellow bumper lights. I bought a can of satin black spray paint and matte clear and also lens tint for the side markers. I ended up painting everything while still on the car and just taped the car off real good. It actually turned out pretty nice and saved myself about 270 bucks. So if anyone is thinking of doing this just be sure you take

saved myself about 270 bucks. So if anyone is thinking of doing this just be sure you take your time and tape the car off real good or you will get over spray all over your pretty A3. Eventually i will probably buy a after market grill because i want a badge less one but this works for now. I did leave the chrome ring unpainted because i didnt know how the paint would take to it but the chrome audi

AUDI A3 I 8L where is my intercooler im i knoob yes i know

i know its really stupid but im just wonderin where my intercooler is bc in my old gti it was in the left fender and was wonderin if it is in the same place and if so can get more cold air to it by cutting my fog light cover its just like a plastic bit that has nothing to do with the housing of the fog lights

On the U.S. 2.0T it should be in the center directly in front of the radiator. See this pic on APRs site their intercooler sits in the stock location httpwww.goapr.comaudiproductsabout_mkv_fmic.html Also the S3 intercooler which is supposedly a direct replacement for the stock A3 intercooler httpoempl.usindex.phpmain_page...roducts_id435

AUDI A3 II 8P 2006 A3 issues

Hi. I just picked up a used 06 A3 2.0T with 65K miles on the clock. Service history is unknown but the car seems to be in good shape. What are some of the standard (or non standard) issues that are common in these models that I should be looking for What if any things should I do in terms of preventing any known issues I have heard the trans control modules are iffy. Anyone have that experience What

system which has gone through a number of revisions. There are after-market systems that address this but I havent seen data that says they truly solve the problem. Be sure to use synthetic VW 502 approved oil (Mobil 1 0W-40 and Castrol 5W-40 are two readily available examples) and change it every 5-6000 miles. The DSG fluid and filter should be changed every 35K. Heres an excellent listing of A3

AUDI A3 II 8P 2006 A3 2.0T - loud tapping noise (video link inside) warranty help

I recently bought a 2006 A3 2.0T build date is 0605. The car is from Arizona but I live in NJ I never brought it to the dealer here. Original warranty expires 123109. It has 31000 miles on it. 1) Is this noise normal 2) What is it 3) If its not normal Will it be covered under the warranty I have a feeling the dealership will try to avoid the repair it since the warranty will expire soon and the check

Your noise is absolutely normal. The 2.0T engine has very high compression and with direct injection it sounds like a diesel engine at idle which is what youre hearing. Above idle that noise should disappear. BTW youre missing the small cover on the air intake behind the radiator. That part is easily lost but will result in drawing in hot air from the engine compartment rather than cooler outside air.

AUDI A3 A3 3.2 Check Engine Light on again

I picked up a 2006 A3 3.2 Quattro DSG with 67000km for my wife last month. Aside from the somewhat squeaky suspension and rough DSG take off the car was fine until last week when the check engine light came on. So I took it in to my local dealership for service as it is still under warranty (not for long). I was told the O2 sensor was faulty and the service advisor recommended against from driving

AUDI A3 III 8V 2012 A3 How do you adjust these fcking head lights

I would rate my automotive knowledge above average. I changed the timing belt and clutch on my 2006 VW BRM in my parents driveway a few years ago. I swapped a couple Chevys and built one from scratch minus the machine work.... So I feel about damn stupid here but I cannot adjust the head lights on my A3. I bought a Ross-Tech cable and found the adjust feature but in learn mode I am forced to manually

Im still learning audi terms but I guess its the Xenon range with LEDs. The bolts I speak of are directly behind the head lights close to the radiator. Seems like a couple turns and theyre out. I wondered if I had the wrong ones.

If you arent 100% take a picture and post it up and Ill let you know.
