    Thread: Audi TT FAQ

    1. 12-05-2009 03:11 PM #101
      ya bumper needs to come off. not difficult though should take u 20min if u got two jack stands a jack and you have done it once or twice. do your self a favor and take both front wheels off to make it easier.
      1)front wheels off
      2)inner fender lining (just get the front of the lining free so u can pull it back and rest it behind the front suspension.
      3)2 10mm nuts on the inside behind the inner lining
      4)2 screws on the bottom
      5)6 hex screws on the top (need to remove the cover on top to get to them)
      6)remove bumper straight out and ur done to work on the lights

      The TTq, like the Volkswagen R32, uses an AWD system manufactured by a Swedish company called Haldex, rather than the traditional TorSen (torque-sensing) quattro system used in other Audi models. The Haldex is basically a control unit that uses a prop shaft off the rear of the transverse gearbox (02M, DSG) to control how much power the rear differential uses. Both cars are effectively FWD until sensors throughout determine that power needs to be sent to the rear, which, in stock form, happens with hard acceleration or loss of traction. The Haldex system on average distributes about 80% of the power to the front wheels and 20% to the rear wheels. In normal driving and highway cruising, the TT quattro is essentially a FWD car; when handling becomes an issue, the Haldex system wil send power to the rear wheels, but it will never go beyond a 50/50 split. TorSen, on the other hand, can send almost all its power to the rear wheels, depending on modifications.
      If you want a more constant 50/50 power distribution, you can purchase a Haldex Performance controller... they sell for $900 new or around $600 used. This part will give you a more aggressive power distribution, and will allow more power to go to the rear wheels in any conditions, not just after front tire slippage. There are two replacement parts for the Haldex system, in the form of either a Blue or Orange controller; with the Blue controller, more power is sent to the rear wheels earlier, but the controller unlocks once the gas is released, or if the clutch or brake pedals are pressed. The more expensive ($1000+) Orange controller, however, stays locked.

      If you could incorporate all of the different engine codes, what years they were offered and what are the differences between them that would be cool. Probably just put it in with the different submodels. A guy just posted this and it was a really good question, that I actually was wrong about the answer and it was also very interesting. I had no idea that 180's were VVT.

      I'm unsure of the 3.2 engine code


      Just saw this many days too late...
      The NA 3.2 TT's engine code is BHE (a MKIV r32 is a BJS)

      Hi Eric, can you check the link to the offset calculator in post #1?
      The link should contain the ending forward slash '/'; ie. "http://www.2x.ca/TT/offset/" instead of "http://www.2x.ca/TT/offset". Internet Explorer doesn't seem to care about this but Konqueror and Firefox(svn) complained about a malformed url.

      I am installing a V.D.O. boost gauge in my 02 225 and using the Modshack gauge ring setup I need some help on which wire to tap for the gauge to light up and be on the dimmer. So which wire do I splice it to on the back of the headlight switch for proper function. Help !

      Can some one explain to me about what the "revised" TT really is?? I'm not 100% sure about what exactly it is... and I ask because I do not have an asr button on my dash... I got the emergency flasher button, the 2 seat heater buttons, the rear window defogger button and that's it... I have one empty hole right in the middle. Is that where its supposed to go??

      Yes, the ASR/ESP button would go there. You also have a button between the hatch and fuel door releases, that is to turn on and off the interior motion sensor (for security), the later mk1s just dumped the button and always have the sensor on w/the system. The various updates to the TT all happened by 2003 (aside from the 3.2/DSG stuff) but I don't have hard dates for several of the changes

      Any pics of this? I thought that button was for the roadster's wind deflector (mine is blank obviously).

      I think if it detects motion right off the bat, it disables the motion. i.e. like leaving a dog in the car or something.

      1. Press bottom "A" and hold it
      2. Turn on the Ignition (you should see "SERVICE or SERVICE IN XXXX MILES"
      3. Release button "A"
      4. Press button "B"

      The only LSDs available are those from Quaife or Peloquin, the OEM rear diff was open. Final drive is set, though I know transmission gears from other cars can be used (Euro TDI O2M had better gear ratios)
