Been having some teething problems with my 04 A3 2.0FSi. Owned it a little over a month and already had coil packs replaced under warranty.

I thought it may be something to do with the 'bang'. Hopefully the garage are smart enough to read the codes rather than speculating.

Thanks for the swift response.

A3 Brake Pads

My pads are due for replacement all round. Got a price of £120 for the lot which was expected. Was going to price up doing it myself but I don't know what make/parts to go for. Halfords do 3...

RE: first creak sound from headliner/sunroof area!

I have the exact same annoying noise coming from the same area of my 97 Mk 1 A3! Hope you find out what it is. I'm assuming your problem will be covered under warranty?

RE: audi a3 speakers / wires

I've heard about a lot of people having the exact same problems. I've kept the BOSE concert system just because it sounds like SUCH an arse to change it all, even though the rear speakers are pants!...

RE: Q(1)alarm remote lock 2 audi keyring - Q(2)extra power

Yeah it's difficult. I really wish I'd forked out extra for the 1.8 Turbo when I had the chance. I think I'm gonna leave it until my exhaust needs replacing and get a after-market then. £330 fitted...

RE: Q(1)alarm remote lock 2 audi keyring - Q(2)extra power

All depends on if the alarm/RCL is an audi fitted part or retro-fit unit. If it's audi I don't see the problem as it should work on the same transponder. Just a case of programming the key to...

RE: Power/Acceleration Problem (1997 A3 1.6 SE)

Got my problem sorted to an extent. Had a new MAF fitted and it has made a huge difference. Cleared down 4 fault codes in the ECU too which can't have been helping. Still not QUITE right, think she...

RE: Brake Lights Not Functioning

Sorted it thanks. You were right. The fuse panel has got to come off, and then the front panel below the steering wheel. 30 minute job. £8 part!

Brake Lights Not Functioning

Whoever said bad things come in threes wasn't effing kidding! After my MAF buggered (which still ain't right), and the airbag light came on (still buggered), now the brake lights aren't working! Both...

RE: Power/Acceleration Problem (1997 A3 1.6 SE)

I've just cleaned off my MAF sensor. Really simple job but I'm not sure if it's worked to full effect. There is definately a noticable difference at the lower end but there is still hesitation...

RE: buying advice

Nice choice pal. You won't be disappointed.
Well first of all I'd go for a 1.8T. From memory its only group 14 insurance, standard 1.8 is group 12, 1.8 Sport is group 13 (I think). I love my 1.8...

RE: Power/Acceleration Problem (1997 A3 1.6 SE)

Nice hint, I will try that. So does it clear down any ECU faults in much the same way as a VAG-Com, minus the fault code reading of course? Suppose the fauts will come back if the MAF is still...

RE: Power/Acceleration Problem (1997 A3 1.6 SE)

Well they seem quite easy to fix! Blocked valves can be sorted with engine addetives such as Wynns (I think thats how you spell it) or STP injector cleaner. However, I periodically use these products...

RE: aircon instalation

I guess £600 is ok yeah, but when you consider you can get so much done to your engine & exhaust for that amount of cash, it makes you wonder what's more important!
Hmm, as for the key fob I'm...

Superchips?

Has anybody had Superchips installed on their motor? I've contacted AMD & REVO but they say they can't cater for my motor, but both have put me onto Superchips. I've got a quote of £300 form my AG...

RE: Power/Acceleration Problem (1997 A3 1.6 SE)

Since my last post I've found out a bit more. It's 99% certain that in my case it is a MAF problem. This is a REALLY easy clip on, clip off part mounted just in fromt of the filter box on the cold...

RE: Power/Acceleration Problem (1997 A3 1.6 SE)

I have the exact same rpblem with my 1997 1.8 20v. It feels like something is bunging up the power.
From what I've found out, it could be either the cam belt tensioners or the Mass Air Flow sensor....
