View Full Version : 2005 A6 Ignition barrel

19-05-2011, 09:52 AM

I have had my 2005 A6 2.0 TDI Avant for comming up to 2 years and must say it's been the most expensive car I've ever owned. It came with a full service history and I have maintained it religiously only to have the rear wash wipe fail (replaced and it still has an intermitent fault) the oil pump to explode (yes its the BLB prefix engine), and now the dam thing has thrown up a ignition barrel fault. I have asked Liverpool Audi if they could supply a barrel to match my key, to which I received a negative answer, but I'm sure this must be possible, can anyone out there point me in the right direction?

Thanks for any guidance.:zx11:
