does the scroll knob work? the button often cracks, becomes loose and will not turn the selector. try with the knob pulled off.
Question Answered: 1989-90 AUDI 200 OVERHEATING
November 05, 2009, 06:38 PM
make sure your fans work. does the heater work well? a bad pump will decrease heater funtion too due to low flow. does the car actually overheat? false warning lights can come from the low coolant sensor in the tank or the wiring, and dont get me started on the coolant multi function sensor under the upper radiator hose flange. note: the timing belt drives the water pump, so be careful.
Question Answered: Please HELP! - adjustable steering column issue
November 05, 2009, 06:27 PM
easy as power and ground. get to the motor under the column and test power and ground at the larger of the wires going to the motor. there may be smaller wires for position sensing. if power and ground are ok, the motor is bad. if not, you will need a wiring diagram.
Question Answered: Cam seals, gears, and adjuster replacement
November 05, 2009, 06:21 PM
check your previous bill. were there 4 cam seals/plugs charged out? these seals cover the bolts in the cam pulleies that need to be loosened to do a t-belt and should have been replaced. there should also be 2 valve cover gskts since the cams need to be physically held to time the engine. i'd be wondering what else could have leaked. (assuming your car is an 02 "a"4 not "s"4 which should be a 3.0l)

you could try some powdered foot spray. spray areas you suspect. the powder will absorb and show leaks and may help in narrowing your search area.
Question Answered: Rear road noise
November 05, 2009, 06:09 PM
rear wheel bearing is my bet from experience. if you can, safely try swerving moderately left to right when noise is heard. if the noise changes, most likely a bearing. tire noise can be ruled out if noise is the same on various roads (like dirt). the proper "audi" bearing has blue seals. there is often confusion in the parts manual from audi.

left side only on rear fogs (cars pass on left in germany). later models use 2 but are called driving lights.
