    Anyone else had headlamp washers not retracting fully after use, mines started doing exactly that after use, wondering if something just needs a clean or replacement parts are needed.
    Haven't had the time to investigate properly yet, just a gentle shove and it returns home as it should.

    Hi. Looks like my TT a water pressure driven system, so perhaps a relief valve sticking. This may assist

    The Audi line on this is people not using a quality approved screen wash causes the pistons to stick on retraction. These are 75.55 and mean removing the bumper, I know some people take them apart and try to clean them but we have to know what we do will work faultlessly as if we spent 2 hours doing it and we failed, we have blown the cost of the new parts which have an Audi 2 year warranty coving parts and labour.

How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Do we have a list of "approved" screenwash? Personally I've never heard such BS as "approved screenwash", it's just blame shifting by Audi to try and worm out of replacing a faulty part.

    It is an official TPI but I can’t dig it out from my iPad at home.
