      I am hoping this is just a vacuum leak, as I have found my brake booster hose is cracked at the fitting that goes to the brake booster. Found that tracking down a P1136 (lean.) Tested by covering...
    2. Whistle/moan cruising 30-35mph? Sounds like wind whistling?

      '01 Audi TT Quattro 225hp AMU

      When I'm driving about 30-35 mph, maybe 40, there is sometimes a "whistling" sound. Not high pitched, not following engine RPM, not even following what I would expect...
    3. If your rear caliper piston won't turn in, check the parking brake

      Today I was replacing rear rotors and pads on an '01 A4 Quattro. The piston turned freely but it just wasn't going in at all.

      I googled this and found others with the same problem, but no...

      No problem. Zimmermann discs and Akebono pads in a full kit from fcpuro.com. I was surprised it didn't come with the "sliders" and I couldn't find any others, so I cleaned them up and reused them.

      Still running fine after 200 miles of driving.

      When I filled it, it took a little over 7 quarts, which surprised me, because I though the full capacity was something like 9 liters. I did follow...
    6. Whatcha call the pad "sliders" and do you need them?

      I don't know the name for these parts, but they are a thin piece of bent stainless steel that fit between the little tabs at the ends of the brake pads and the bracket the pads sit in.

      Provides a...

      Filled with as much as it would take while off and cold, then followed the procedure described in many places to fill while running and shifting through gears (with foot on brake) until up to...

      Everything's been put back together for a couple weeks, but had to wait for a clear weekend day to fill it.

      Last weekend, had a minor disaster. I rigged up a pressurized pump in the gallon ATF jug...

      Without more info about your symptoms, hard to say.



      Do you mean, abruptly? In a way that makes the car lurch forward or slow down more quickly than normal? Has it always done this or is this a...

      Master VW mechanic I trust looked at my custom part and said that should work fine. I trust it more than bending my own wire clip. Cobra transmission said the wire clip was only available from...

      Master mechanic I trust at VW took a look at the pan and said that looks pretty good, he wouldn't worry about new fluid causing a problem. So that's what I'll do.

      Wow.

      Wow wow wow.

      In further researching this, I found a PDF for a BMW ZF-5HP-19FL, that shows the "bore plug retainer" as almost exactly the "L" part I made.

    14. Fixing "no reverse when warm" on ZF transmission valve body

      This post is to log my attempt to fix my daughter's transmission on her '01 Audi A4 Quattro with 01V transmission (ZF 5HP19FLA.) I will be updating with photos and info as I go.

    15. Would you put new ATF in this? (pan pic)

      I am doing some "targeted surgery" on my daughter's '01 A4 transmission valve body. But that's not the point of this thread.

      The point is, to work on the valve body, you obviously have to drain...

      Quattro = AWD.

      But I should have mentioned, sedan. However, even the Avant (wagon) shows the same rear suspension setup as the sedan.

    17. '01 A4 Quattro, rear spring differences?

      Working on my daughter's A4. On the passenger side, the rear spring was broken. Saw two white dots and two violet, so ordered two part 8D5511115G.

      One is on the car already, and I'm working on the...

      Is there anyone in CT, near New Britain, who can work with me on replacing an O-ring in a valve body? ('01 A4 Quattro O1V.) Preferably at your location, and someone who's worked on valve bodies...

      Aha. So perhaps the previous owner recoded it to start up in sport mode. If so, you definitely need to find someone with VCDS to check and/or change it.

      Or, maybe a dealer could reset it to...
