I have also been told by the same dealer that 'Audi Heritage' (if that's even a parts supply thing, google does not provide useful info here) now support the RS6 so parts should continue to be available going forward.

Re: Can't find this part

So I just had a quick look at mine. The red connector must be in the ECU box. Couldn't see anything else in the plenum chamber.

My fans run from cold. If I put the AC in Econ mode, both fans stop (engine's cold, innit). If turn the AC back on, they both start.

/Looking more likely to be the fan.

Re: Can't find this part

There are no relays between the ECU and the fan control units. The fan control units receive a PWM signal from the ECU. The wires for this go via 2 17-pin connectors. Worth checking them for damage / poor connections. One is the red one under the wipers. Not sure where it is, exactly. Maybe next to ...

Re: Tensioner rattle

How bad is the rattle? They all resonate slightly at about 1300 rpm.

You can get new tensioners cheaper than that on Rockauto. There was a thread about replacement pads fairly recently.

Re: Anyone know this one

Ak Specialist Cars doesn't appear to be a registered company. The address given in the advert is here:

I wouldn't even pick up the phone to call about it. I know even without looking at the photos that the car will be a dog.

Re: Anyone know this one

Well, when it passed its last MOT 2 years ago it had 139 000 miles on the clock for a start.

It hasn't been MOT'd since, apparently.

Re: ECU problems

Weird that you were getting short to zero errors logged, though.

Still, compression is compression and that's gotta be sorted before anything else. When's the last time the timing kit was renewed?

What makes you think it's timing belt and not head gasket?

Re: Front discs & pads

I'd definitely want to know in an aircraft if the brakes were going to stop me in extremis! I saw some aircraft brake testing. It passed if the brakes didn't catch fire for 3 minutes or something. Enough time for the fire crew to arrive. On the 3 minute mark, the brakes burst into flames. I had a si...

Re: After market stereo problems

Sounds more like a board level problem, but it won't hurt to try some contact cleaner on the accessible bits.

Re: After market stereo problems

I would be extremely surprised if it was the harness or wiring based on your description. Most likely is that there are some dry joints on the pcb of the Kenwood. Visual inspection might throw something up.
