Answers and questions: audi a3 rear door
I need some help on where to find the proceedure to remove the rear door
pannel specifically the passanger rear door
and repair the window. I heard something rattle when I shut the door
and now the window wont roll up. I can hear the motor working but it sounds like grinding and snapping. Thanks.
Just incase this happens to any other A3 owner out there. Well the popping and grinding was the mechinism that pulls the window up and down. The plastic piece that connects the cables to the winow is pretty cheap and the cable that pulls it up broke out of the assembly. Heres how to remove the pannel. Fortunatly I didnt destroy anything. 1. Remove the cover over the tweeter speaker to access a 25 torx bolt. 2. Remove the cover over the window rocker switch. Be careful you can pry it up with a small flat head screw drive and not cause too much damage. There is another 25 torx under this too. 3. Starting from the bottom of the door pannel gently pull until you hear the snaps come free work your way up to the top of the door and then pull straight up. There are a few smaller trip plastic pieces that will come off too without too much prodding. Becareful not to loose any of the small screws when disassembling. 4. Remove the wiring harness from the window motor rocker swith and speaker. Again be careful not to damage any of these components as they look pretty delicate. You can access the window mechinism through another pannel that looks like it is glued into place. You can remove this by sliding a flat head screw drive under it where the tabs hold it into place. Tomorrow I am installing the 159.00 (dealership item) widow regulator piece. Will update then. The dealership said that this part specifically the passanger rear window regulator fails all the time. Im surprised there isnt any more threads on this topic. So with some and time you can fix this problem your self. Im guessing at an audi dealership this would be more than 500 to get repaired.
Can anyone advise on how the black metal section between the front door
and the rear
glass panel gets fitted the local audi
dealer says it fits with 2 rivots without much more explanation. Do you for example have to remove any body work to do this and how do attach with rivots as it looks pretty much sealed in Any advice appreciated. Model A3 3 door

Help Ive just bought a 2007 A3 Sportback (5dr) and am well disappointed to find that there are no rear door
speakers and there dont appear to be any speaker wires in the rear door
s either. The current stereo unit is a single CD Chorus so im guessing this is the basiccheapo model. Can I just run wires to the back of the existing stereo or do I need to get hold of a different one Ive seen some Concert
Im driving a 1.6 2004 A3 and the rear
window wiper has stopped working also i rear
window wash isnt working Front window wipers and wash is working fine Any ideas on what to look at Going to check the Fuse first...
where is the fuse box i thought it was at the side of the dashboard as you open the door n00b
I have the same 2004 audi a3 1.6 and im having the same problem except i managed to fix the washer as there was just a blockage so i took the small cap off the rear wiper and simply clean out the hole with a pin. It now works the wiper still dont move though even though i tried physically moving it whilst it was on and could feel it trying to move. Yes the fuse box which contains the rear wiper fuse is on the side of the dashboard on the drivers side when you open the door

Hi I didnt realise until today that my rear
speakers dont work Judging from the technical stuff Ive read and only somewhat understood the Chorus headunit doesnt support the rear
speakers I seem to have rear
speakers on the door
s (little ones at the top and bigger ones at the bottom) - are they purely for decorative purposes lol. I seemed to get a Concert Manual with my A3 (second-hand) so wondering
I just bought a 2006 A3 that is in fabulous condition overall but I just realized that i cant get the rear

s manually Thanks guys Any help would rule
I have a crackling in the passengers side rear
speaker of my 2005 3 door
A3 Does anyone know how to get access to this speaker i.e which panels i need to remove and how. Any support would be much appreciated. Regards Ash.
What should trigger the lights in the door
edge (red on rear
edge white on underside) I would expect them to come on whenever the door
is open but nothing happens. Do they only work with certain Packages I have all except Technology and Cold Weather on my 06 A3.

How do you remove the cover for the rear
speakers in A3 (1999 3-door
s). I want to set in some new speaker here because its empty I think. I have tried with a screwdriver but no success. I dont want to damage the cover or interior. Must the new speakers be a dim of 165mm So if you have a solution for this and maybe a picture I would be grateful. arneost
Hi My 06 A3 has developed a central locking fault whereby the passenger door
doesnt unlock but all the others work fine. I can hear it trying to unlock but without success. I have manged to get the door
panel outer off but theres a black rubbery looking infill with the handle wire coming through it between me and the inner workings of the door
and Im not sure how to get this off or what to look for Any ideas please Cheers Charlie from N.Z.
Charlie No help here but have similar issue. My rear driver side door intermittently will not lock. Have to manually lock it from the door edge. Havent gotten the door panel off yet & my Bentley manual leaves a lot to be desired in a repair guide. Any chance of a picture to help others with what to expect in the door
I noticed that when I turn the volume up the rear
speakers causes small vibrations in the driver seat. Its barely noticeable but it is annoying. I adjusted the fader to the front and could feel the vibrations diminish and disappear. If its inherent in the design due to rear
speaker location I guess I will live with just using the front speakers but it does sacrifice the overall sound. I may call audi
and see if they gave any solutions. Anyone else notice this and have a solution
You might have hit it on the head Chef. I think it could be there is too much bass going to the door speakers because I dont have the upgrade audio which would send most of the base to the subwoofer and quality power in the correct frequency range to the doors. The manual doesnt say much about the stock stereo. I think there is a subwoofer in the stock system but I am not sure. Turning down the base

Hi I wondered if anybody knew if a 2007 A3 could be retrofitted with the optional rear
sunshades. Much like some dealers seem to be willing to install the blackout grill does any of you know if a dealer would do the same for the rear
sunshades Or is there any other place I could go to Thanks Chief
rear door window shades are cost-prohibitive to retro fit - they require new door panels and the shades themselves are very expensive. rear hatch window shade is easy and available from VAG.
boys got my staggered rims installed yesterday...... i got this tires just to have a temporary same look frontrear
for now im using front ..... 19 x 8.5 225 35 19 (next proper tire 235 35 19) rear
...... 19 x 9.5 245 35 19 (next proper tire 265 35 19) i wanna do some bodywork on the back fenders wider enough to fix the proper tire size listen above anyone from this forum done som like that
Ben (HPA 3.2 3 door) did the Osir front fender andBrian aka Project A3 did the one you saw which is from Nothelle. Neither one can be DIY unless you have some serious training and equipment for body work.

Hey guys... I have a 2008 A3 2.0 and Im hearing a strange knocking noise every time I go over bumps in the road. Ive inspected the entire rear
hatch and spare tire compartment and everything is tight and secure. I jacked the car up and inspected the underside and there is nothing visibly loose other than two plastic shields beside the interior of the rear
wheels. Has anyone experienced this before If the shields were causing the problem would I be able to hear it that well inside the car
Your noise might be from the cargo cover. Heres an excellent How To on the subject httpoooo-a3.blogspot.com200603...noise-fix.html I recently looked at a new Mazda3 5-door and noticed it had small rubber dampers on the cargo hatch for exactly this reason. I might investigate getting some of those.
My noise is more like a muffled rattle that seems to be coming from the right rear at 30 to 40 mph over a series of bumps e.g. broken pavment. The first thing I did was remove the cargo cover then stuffed foam rubber in various places including the gas filler door. No luck. Seems to be worse when it is cold out which would be consistent with a plastic part. Will definitely check out those shields.
I have an 07 3.2 with the auto dimming mirror. Im thinking of having installed in my car a Mito auto dimming mirror with Homelink. heres the link. httpwww.mitocorp.comflashhomeli...ingmirrors.htm I found a local installer and the price isnt too expensive but the installer asked me if the audi
has a cam mount mirror. Does anyone know if the A3 has a cam mount for the mirror
Ive never heard that - Ive had Homelink on virtually every vehicle for maybe 10 years (and for me thats a lot of vehicles ) and through at laest 6 different garage doors. Simple to setup always works. That said dont spend hundreds to install it. You can buy just the unit itself on ebay and give it any simple power source in the headliner and youre done.

My original doorgate opener uses the dip switch technology. Its a two button remote with the code set by two 10-dip switch blocks. Any thoughts as to whether the Homelink will be compatible with my gate system and garage door system
I cant fathom spending that much money to just avoid having a regular garage door opener installed. Maybe you would be able to live with the aesthetics of a keychain garage door opener

I started out looking for a VW GTI and I really do like that car. Right now I am driving a 1999 BMW 323i and it is an excellent ride. I had a 1999 audi
A4 before that and love it except for the auto transmission. I have never owned a car newer than 1999 model year and I am proud of that. But this is my year to buy a new (used) car and first I thought a 4-door
GTI. I dont need 4-door

Ive searched the forums and looked through the audi
maintenance book to determine maintenance intervals and there are some items that are not mentioned or maybe theyre typically done with something else.

Hey guys Im new to the forum. Purchased a used 2009 A3 about 2 weeks ago w51k mi. Its in great condition. This is my first car in 14 years as Ive owned 2 trucks over this time. Gas mileage is now doubled. I really like the car. It did have a leak after 1 week and the dealer fixed it(AC high pressure switch).

Why does the back of the 2-door A3 look so cheap Why doesnt audi just use the same rear configuration of the 4-door
Quote ORIGINAL ScareGlower Why does the back of the 2-door A3 look so cheap Why doesnt audi just use the same rear configuration of the 4-door Personally I really like it. Especially now with the 2009 has decent rear tail lights. Having seen S3s in person I must say the 2 door look is aggressive not cheap I think the back is different because the proportions (if not the dimensions) on the 2 door are
Hi Guys I just bought a 2007 A3 2.0t S-line. Color is ocean blue pearl. I have been over in the A6 forum for the past years and I still drive it but my wife was hooked on this new car. So long story short I continue to drive my 2002 a6 4.2 and she is now driving the a3 2.0t s-line. Car feels and sounds solid so far but I will take a more thorough look on the weekend when I get it. Dealer kept the car
So I was checking out my usual news sites and saw that pricing for the new BMW 1 series has been announced at it starts at 35k. I know this is way off topic but there are a handful of cars out there that I see as alternatives to the A3 and the Beemer is one of them. But at 35k for the stripped down version (52000 when you max it out with options) I dont see how anyone looking for a premium compact would go for this when the A3 2.0 and 3.2 are out there. Just my two cents.
Yes here in Taiwan they are competitors. Before I bought my A3 2.0TDI I drove the BMW 120i and 120d (d is a diesel version). Both are 5 door hatches. The price difference between the A3 diesel and the BMW diesel is about 14000 but if you compare the diesel audi to the gasoline BMW the price difference is around 3500. In my opinion very different cars. The rear-wheel drive on the beemer is nice but

windows and rolled back up i noticed
wetness when i roll the windows down and back up--after its been in rain of course. i took it to the dealer. they took apart the door (i actually saw the taken-apart panel) and noticed a gap that would be enough to allow water to seep in. they finally reprod the issue but didnt know if it was a manufacture-wide issue. they had a regional specialist look at it on mon and then they had 5 audi
