Various Probelms Caused by Clogged Plenum Tray Drain

Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.

The Audi company should improve the resistance on gear box. Because the most problem on this is gear. You can find Audi almost everywhere in the world but, there's no accessories, and good cars parked due to the same problem.
