  3. I have been searching for ages for a tailgate louvre as fitted to S3 Turbos but have drawn a blank. Any ideas? B

  9. Hi Giorgio. No, I haven't had to buy new hoses because my rear hoses are stainless braided items with reusable banjos. I have therefore simply bought some replacement banjos (eBay) and fitted them to the existing hoses. Things to note are, 1) The Audi calipers take an M12 x 1.00 thread banjo bolt. 2) You therefore need to buy a couple of M12 banjo's. Best to buy items that come with the compression fitting and olive as this saves buying parts piecemeal. 3) The Audi calipers are a direct replacement for the original Girling units - no modification necessary.

  10. I read this post several times a while back, thought about it and decided to have a go, because my handbrake has always been a bit naff. In case it did'nt work, I've initially bought just a nearside Audi A6 caliper (brand new & only £20 on eBay) which I've found you need to fit on the offside in order place the bleed nipple uppermost. There's a bit of a knack to getting the calliper in place because there isn't much space - the rear chassis loop that runs under the gearbox gets in the way. This loop also runs very close to the bleed nipple, so bleeding the rear brakes may be easier said

    MISFIRE

    Fixed it! On removing the carbs in order to the clean them out on case something was blocked, I found that a couple of the inlet manifold o-rings had swollen and weren't seating properly, causing an air leak. Cleaned the carbs, replaced the o-rings - sorted! Bob

    MISFIRE

    And it's not the Accuspark unit either because I replaced it this afternoon and it's still misfiring. And yes, the timing is spot-on. ...am completely stumped! B
