Loss of power

Problem:

If you find that there is a lack of power when accelerating, or if there is a loss of power when driving at speeds over 70mph, then you have a problem with the air mass meter.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to identify if it is the probe that is causing the fault, or if it is the full meter at fault. Check the probe first, as this is the cheaper option to fix.

Squealing Brakes

Problem:

The front brakes make a squealing sound when applied.

Models affected:

Solution:

Don’t assume that this is a problem with the brake pads or discs. In fact, Audi claims that the squealing sound is totally normal. They even printed a pamphlet about brake noise, simply because so many people complained about it. It’s not affecting brake performance, but if the squealing gets too annoying, replacing your brake pads with a new set from our parts list will resolve the issue.
