Re: "pulling" trunk codes


To the best of my knowledge, there are no limited-slip diffs in the
traditional sense in any quattros.  There are open diffs with 100% locking
features, open diffs with EBV (also known as EBD in some markets), and the
rare Torsen rear  la A8/V8.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if
someone thinks otherwise, lift the rear wheels up and rotate a wheel by
hand.  The other wheel should spin in the same direction, albeit slower in a
ltd slip type rear.  I just went through the factory tech material on
transmissions and diffs to check, and the only exception to the rule might
be the father of all quattros, the Audi designed VW Iltis, the not-so-sport
utility vehicle.
