      Upholstery - replacing seat cover

      It's a common experience to have your driver side seat bolster wear and split. I've had my a3 since 07, and yes indeed, my seat bolster has been split almost half this time. I've only priced out a...

      Yep. I plan on having the mechanic who installed the pump check it out. I just wanted to know if these were tell-tale signs, but tstat sounds also possible since it's in the same area.

      Weird how these tow hook covers fall out - even when the piece has a little whip and hook that is supposed to keep it hanging there in case it falls out.

      You should perhaps keep in mind that if you are driving in D mode and then shift using a paddle, the transmission takes about 30 seconds (approx) to return to automatic shifting. This might be a...

      The BJ seemed fine after I removed it. Boot was not torn; it still moved smoothly albeit stiffly. Under load, it probably worked fine. The removal tool caused the boot to open on the narrow end, so I...

      Fixed it.

      Creaks were coming from two M10 bolts on control arm bracket. They were not torqued adequately. All is well. Now I am enjoying clunk, creak and wobble - free driving!

      This was my first thought as well, since I initially reused four stretch bolts. Now, they are replaced with new ones, but it did not effect a change.


      Next opportunity I will be examining the...

      So, I acquired a lightly used set of the collars designed to center the front sub-frame. Honestly, the diy install did not go as smoothly as I expected. I was having trouble aligning the holes and...

      Great advice! As it turns out, my ECU had an incorrect program. My tuner was able to sort it all out, and all readiness bits passed. I now have my emissions certificate.
      Thanks for all your input!

      I was able to pass my emissions test in 2013. I remember switching to Stock ecu program the...

      Santos,
      Thanks for chiming in. I have spoken to my local tuner and I plan on trying again once the car is reflashed. I'll update the thread at that time. Cheers! :beer:

      When I took it to test shop, ECU was set to 91 tune (that, suddenly occurring to me as the tech was literally half way into the test! Doh!). But since then, I've scanned it about five times while...

      Catalyst Readiness problem

      I'm having difficulty setting readiness using VCDS. All bits are ready except for the cat. I've run through the guided readiness program, but could not get past the 8th step out of the 16. It seemed...

      It only has APR Stg 1. It currently is switchable and is at a STOCK setting.

      My main query involves the length of time it takes to initiate readiness via VCDS. I found it very frustration that...
