You can also get about 20 different connectors (male

you've got one) for about $10.  They don't even need
to be Audi specific as many manufactures used Bosch
components and similar connectors.  They come in handy
for just such a reason, as well as making up those
cool test connectors they always show in the Bentley.
I made about 4 differnet ones.  All shrink wrapped, so
they look just like the ones in the manual.  I try to
take them from protected, low heat areas.  They seem
almost like new, if you find the right ones.

Do you have the "right" oil filter installed?  Using a
generic Merican oil filter will have them rattling
like crazy.  The real ones have an "anti-drain back
valve".  Well one that works anyway.  The only
American made oil filters I had any luck with (very
good actually) were the old AC ones.  Painted blue
with a thick steel case and a good anti-drainback
valve.  Of course, they worked so well and were so
inexpensive, they had to change them.  Oh well.  I now
favor the cheapo Mann 715? universal filter.
