Joined List, have Audi (4ksq), Have problems.
Hello, this is my first posting to the quattro list, so please excuse my
nervousness and if I'm off-topic, etc. But alas, I own an Audi, a beast
of a different sort, certainly. Here are the problems I have with it:
1. Diff. lock cable. Well, it dissappeared. The diff. locks worked
when I bought the car, but no longer works, because the cable, well, seems to
have dissapeared (ie: probably snapped, and found some way to fall off), What
exactly should I replace/need to get it working again, and is there any way
for me to manually unlock the cent. diff. (yes, I have been driving it with
the diff. locked, for about the last 3-400 miles)
2. Sunroof. Is there some cheap, (an Audi, yeah right, but I can dream)
drop in replacement for the crappy factory one? Such as just a glass
I called the dealer for information on parts of the sunroof. They said they
only sold the whole track assembly, they gave me a price, and I almost had a
3. Power window. Mine stopped working after going to a drive-thru. I took
the power window assembly and motor out. I opened up the backing plate
on the motor. It turns out that the cable has a bunch of bends and kinks in
it, making it impossible to wind back up on the spool. I called around, and all
anyone seems to sell is the whole assembly, the cheapest being something like
$125. YIKES! Does anyone know someone that sells just the cable, and
possibly the platic spool? Or can I use the cable/spool from an Audi with
manual windows? What about a VW?
4. More "pep"? Has anyone thought about wiring a few 'hacks' for more
power? (For off-road purposes only :) Such also grounding out the oxygen
sensor wire, and the NTC? coolant sensor, (plus say a 3k resistor) to the full
throttle? Any disadvantages to this? Any other methods of power increase
(hopefully cheap:) for CIS-E cars?
If anyone can answer the above questions (especially the power window
one, I've got the window held up, but it ain't a pretty sight.) I'd be much
appricated, because these problems are driv ing me up the wall, especially
since winter seems to be rearing it's ugly head :(.
