    Hi
    just got my first audi, an A6 Avant 1.8T 1999
    am impressed with the car but there are a couple of probs with it
    the stero does not power up even though there is power getting to it,
    the drivers side window is jammed up, i can hear the motor working but is not moving the window,
    sometimes the digital reading on the dash has large bits missing

    and finally some scumbag has snapped my rear wiper and arm off, is this bit only available from the main dealer

    thanks in advance
    Tim

    ,

    there is a fuse in the stereo too, at the back.

    the drivers side window is jammed up, i can hear the motor working but is not moving the window,
    best to check the motor gear is not jammed, you need to remove the inner door linning to get to it.

    A4's and A6's are terrible for this my A4 was the same. I learnt to live with it. some people have fixed it...but its very involved.

    No, Scrap yard or Ebay

    cheers mate
    most of that makes sense to me, will have a go at the window one weekend, as for the display i have found how to turn it off so it doesnt bother me now lol, i have checked the fuse behind the stereo and that is fine but still no life in the stereo, can they be repaired or is it cheaper to look for a second hand one on ebay?

    looked on ebay for wiper arm but nothing there at the mo for an A6, will have to look in some of the locall scrap yards

    cheers
    Tim
