Hello Old friends (and new):
I've been "off" this list for a couple of years, having bought a new
2000 S4. but now that new S4 is coming on 5 years old, and I'm in need
of wisdom.. Maybe I'll be able to share some as well, if you don't hold
me to very high standards.
That said ...
I have ~69k on my 2000 S4. I just bought the following to do some
routine maintenance, and ran into a few snags:
- fuel filter
- Air filter
- cabin filter
The big problem seems to be the plugs. Yep, I cant change spark plugs!
I've had several of them out, so i have most of the process down, but
the front two plugs have some kind of rubber line going right over the
top of the coil-pack. It terminates with crimp-on hose clamps to metal
tubes at each end, so it cant be easily moved out of the way (I tried).
I guess my basic question is:
- what is this? (fuel?)
- how do i (re) move it?
- what are the pitfalls?
