new 4000 owner has several questions
Hi all! I've been lurking around the list for some time now and just bought
my first car, an 86 4000S, 5sp, non-quattro, :( I must say this car is
totally different than my parents' 89 sdlO sialaC and the rest of the
American cars Ive been driving until now. I'll never go back!
Anyway, I've got a couple of questions maybe someone can help me out with:
1) Since I don't have an owner's manual, could someone identify the 3 gauges
underneath my radio. The first is obviously the volt gauge for the
battery. The second is identified as "bar" and goes from about
1 to 5. The third is some type of temp gauge which starts at
60 degrees C but it never moves, maybe broken?
2) I'm a bit concerned that my turn signals are only visible from directly
in front or behind. At the front, shouldn't the parking lights at
the corners flash when I signal or are the blinkers kind of in
the center of the bumper the only ones in these cars?
3) Lastly, my alternator belt REALLY needs replacing so I bought one this
weekend from the local parts place but when I went to put it in,
I couldn't figure out how to remove the second of 2 belts that are
directly in front of the alternator belt. The belt in question
went to the pulley on the AC and I didn't see any way of relieving
the tension on it except for maybe trying to remove the AC pulley.
I didnt want to do that without knowing for sure (I've got to order
a service manual this week) but I also didn't want to take it and
have the dealer replace it.
Thanks in advance,
Oh yeah, whoever posted the address for Audi Product Service Publications
in Ohio, do they have a phone number I can use to order myself both an
owner's manual and a Bentley manual??
