      Got it back from dealer for ABS and Airbag recalls and got the PRNDS flash of death. Worked ok after a restart. Gonna check with Vagcom tomorrow and see whats up, really hoping its not the mechatronics.

      You got a fix for the airbag recall?

      Yep.

      When I took it in I looked on the Audi site and it said it wasn't ready or available but the guy at the dealer said they would do it and the final paper work says they swapped out the takata inflator.

      You would be the very first A3 I've heard of being fixed.. not saying it isn't true, just hard to believe they had a fix.

      I'm a surprised as you. Unless the dealer is lying.

      Check engine light came on again, usually driving into a strong wind. Throws a P0068 a couple of times but last night threw a B2800. Now the research begins.

      Cleared those previous codes (P0068 and B2800) with the generic code reader, tonight I got a B2000 and B3800. From what i have read it looks like new thermostat and or coolant sensors. Gonna check with the VAG-COM time as soon as my tablet charges.

      Friends! I need help! I'm selling my BLQs with the practically new tires on them. They're polished and ceramic coated. 18x8.5 et35. Probably about less than 5k on the tires. If that. They're pirelli p-zero tires. 205 40 18. I want $1000 for them. Is that unreasonable?

      Let's see...

      - Rear wiper motor is constantly running. Guessing the motor needs replaced?
      - When I opened the hood I noticed a nice crack in the washer fluid filler line. looks like that needs replaced.
      - Weird flapping noise just started when I get above 60mph. no clue what's causing this. guessing I need to get the car into the shop.
      - Some jackass decided to rub my front bumper with their car. now have a nice white paint stripe on my blue car.

      open the washer area as they leak after years of use and clean the connector and it should work correctly

      I replaced the line only which is a very cheap part and not the bottle

      if someone changed the oil then I suspect the belly pan is loose

      can't fix jackasses

      Get some rubbing compound and a wax towel. The white is just paint transfer from their bumper. There will probably still be some damage underneath but it should look better than it does right now.

      Is the washer area inside the hatch panel or on the exterior?

      Did you order that from a dealer? I'm only finding replacements of the whole unit

      I did just have the oil changed. I'll have to have the belly pan checked. it makes sense to me as to what would be causing that noise

      Slight problem...the door is definitely closed. pretty positive it's a wiring thing which is hurting my brain already.

      Had the timing chains done, along with the water pump and haldex fluid. Was perfect, dropped the car off and went fishing with the old man for a week. Except when I got back, found out the mechanic had to replace the radiator since he found a leak it it that had been sealing itself up but would've almost certainly blown out this summer. And, what I had thought to be an ABS issue has turned out to be something with the haldex system. Car starts and drives fine but within 10 minutes of driving there's a thud and a jerk and the traction control light comes out. Doesn't come back on when you restart the car. Battery is new. It's throwing the following codes which the mechanic was kind enough to give me, I couldn't leave the car there since I need to get to work.

      01234 - Control Module fo All Wheel Drive (J492)
      013 - Check DTC Memory - Intermittent

      00448 - Haldex Clutch Pump (V181)
      014 - Defective - Intermittent


      I'm going to have some time tomorrow so I'll have the car up on jackstands and see if the wiring harness is beat up somewheres but other than that there's no much I can do besides look around online for anyone with similar problems. Should I just get a new control module or a new pump? I've been reading that "Mk1" haldex systems are prone to failure but I don't know what years are considered "Mk1", the car is a 2006, I can give you the VIN if that'll help in case there's some odd inter-year part variations. Please and thanks.

      I had this last year in a hot summer days. Both fans had gone bad. I replaced the whole assembly and this fixed my issue.

      When it's hot out my fans will turn on full blast (both) shortly AFTER turning the ignition off. They will run full bore (very loud) for about a minute and then stop completely. This is not the usual running extra because the engine is hot. I haven't found a definitive answer about what exactly the problem is. All I find is people reporting the fans running constantly and never stopping or one fan running normal speed but the other fan not running at all.

      The list keeps growing:

      Sunroof stopped responding to switch input
      Driver's side window regulator crapped out (again)
      Still have exhaust leak
      Lights dim when I hit the brakes
      Developed a slight front end shake
