    Hi Andy,
    Thanks for reply.
    Quick version!
    Bought the car (2001 2.5tdi) and had the front passenger side replaced after about 4 months as was constantly down and proved to be leaking.
    As I was working abroad for that four months - didn't know about it until I came back, so as a result compressor been working like buggery trying to pump up a leaky bag.

    When bag was replaced, car was fine on two lights, no leaks and stays up.
    However when it drops to one light, it struggles to pump up to two, and warning light comes on in the dash.

    Rarely gets to three lights.

    No real loud noise from the compressor unit, purrs away quite nicely.

    Hope this helps

    Mark

    Hi mark, I would recomend a fault code read, but from your description it sounds like a tired compressor, a new Piston ring should get it up and running again.

    Regards

    Hi Andy
    I think a reply from you just came in on my ebay message to you as I type this. Being in Denver, we have a ton of allroads (2nd highest number in the world I am told). Have you thought about a US and Can distributor for the rings? It would give me an excuse to visit my friend in Oban. I am a business solicitor and Audi enthusiast. I am sure there are bunch of parts places and forums to sell these on in the US. As you know, beer canning is the big range on the allroad compressors here and your seal is far superior. We can talk on Skype if you like. My wife is a glass artist and we already have a mail room set up. Looking forward to talking more.
    kindest regards
    Peter

    Hi Peter, I will be in touch again through e-bay messages soon, I plan to improve the postage to USA, to be honest I havent had time to look at better shipping methods, I'm sure there is a cheaper method, I just chose the standard airmail method at the time.

    An update for all on the repair kits:

    I have made up a test rig to test each one as I make them, but all going well so far,

    I made a slight mod the the shape from the earlier batches which dramatically increased the pressure to 12+ Bar from 1st fitting, the benifit is, reducing any bed in time and so increasing the pressure from the start.

    feedback is: The hardest part is getting the bolts off as they can be rusted on.
    Selling well, worldwide 70+ kits to date, 3 off returns in total, one couldn't remove any nuts and so did not use the kit at all, 1 fail/No pressure at all, not sure if the piston is intact/cylinder issues or if the piston ring was to blame, and one poor pressure which I have now swapped out with the new version for them to try, awaiting feedback about this, but I am confident it will solve there issue.

    if anyone has any questions or had problems with the fitting please get in touch so I can assist.

    best regards

    Andy

    Nice to see you're doing well with these Andy.
    What about vibration dampers and bolts that hold compressor, are they dealer only or you can suply them as well?
