Hi guys I now have another suspension issue — Audi allroad europe.com

Hi guys, I now have another suspension issue.

:( I'm at my whits end with this car now.

The car has dropped to level 1 on the right side, but the left side is about the same height as it would be at level 2.

There are no warning lights on, but the compressor will not run. Its only showing 1 light on the level adjust.

Andy, so you have any suggestions?

I'm pretty sure it's not the red wire to the compressor this time, but I can't get underneath to see.

    Help, quick suggestions ?

    My car is down on its left rear. It's in a garage now & has had its spring seal kit replaced, but has dropped again. The garages next suggestion is the valve unit. They can't be sure though. Next down the line would bet he pressure accumulator, but as the rest are all staying up, suggests that's ok.

    Any advice or tips on a correct diagnosis ?

      Not really allroad related but maybe interesting anyway. Piloted a car carrier out last night and on the way up to the bridge, we passed through the car deck . Value of the total cargo was higher than the cost of the ship (200m long and 32m wide). Full of Audis, Maseratis and 14 Lamborginis. Check the lashing of those cars....

          Has anyone used spigot rings? I've got a spare set of 18-inch Audi alloys with winter tyres from a A6 (C7), ready to fit to my C6 Allroad for a trip to the Alps in a couple of weeks. It turns out that the C7 alloys have a 66.5mm diameter centre and the C6 is 57.1mm. My local tyre independent emporium has recommended buying spigot rings, so I've ordered a set. I'm certainly not going to fit the wheels as they are, just looking to see if anyone has any experience or knowledge of using spigot rings and anything I should look out for or avoid? Ta! ;-)

            What would you value my car at? I have just finished re-furbishing it and am looking to sell. It's a 2002 UK 2.5tdi in excellent condition, 97,000 miles, no service history just some old receipts but just had full major / timing belt service, pulleys, all filters fluids replaced etc. Also just undergone a fairly intensive restoration, new discs, pads and rebuilt calipers all round, stainless braided hoses, full underbody strip, de-rust, epoxy mastic paint and underseal. Bumpers and wheelarch trims freshly painted in Highland Green, grill refurbished and re-painted. Any bodywork corrosion fixed and re-sprayed. Front and rear lights clear coated. Very good interior in green leather. Everything working perfectly, both front window regulators replaced among a very long list of other new parts. Air suspension working perfectly, no air leaks. Only negatives are small dent on front of roof, spare key is dead and AC needs re-charged. Has full years MOT. Was re-mapped (with proof) in 2007 to 220bhp. Some pics below.

              Chris I am in a similar position with mine at the mo! my suspension light is on solid straight away, still looks like it's on level 3 in the morning but dash switch shows level 1, press the up button and in seconds it says it's on level 3 and all good. Drives great but light on all the time and as far as I can work out compressor is working. The lights only go down from 3 to 1 over night, leave for a few hours during the day and all good.

              I need to bite the bullet and get VCDS.....

              Any ideas before I get it scanned?

              But still love the filthy old beast

                Needs some pointers guys. My suspension has been in need of some TLC for a while and I can't seem to find the money to buy a VCDS so some pointers in the right direction might help for now.

                The warning light is on and back left corner is lower than the rest, the compressor is not working at all. The bag is holding air but I can't get the compressor to run.

                I've tried jacking it up but even if I put it in Jack mode and lift the car the suspension travels it's full distance.

                Faulty level sensor, knackered compressor, valve block? Where do I start?

                Thank you for any help.

                    Evening all,

                    I have had my Allroad C7 3.0 tdi (245ps) for ten months now. It has done circa 65k miles. About a month after I bought her i got a coolant low stop the engine immediately warning. I checked the coolant level and it was on max so took it to the dealer who found nothing wrong and could not recreate the issue.

                    I have just got the same message checked the coolant again and it was way below the Min mark so at least I know the sensor is working. My question is more around how can I lose some much coolant in six months given there are no visible leaks? Anyone else had the same issue? Is it normal and I just need to top up the coolant level by a litre every six months?

                    Cheers in advance

                      Hello — Audi allroad europe.com


                      Hello thank you very much for adding me...

                      I have a concern, maybe someone can help me here. Unfortunately, my allroad left me over a year ago and since I have been desperately looking for a new one, that is like the old one, unfortunately so far without success ...


                      - 2.5l TDI

                      - Color: Black

                      - Low range manual transmission

                      - sunroof with solar panels

                      - Alarm system

                      - Recaro seats or electric seats with memory

                      - Seat heating front and rear

                      - heater (not necessarily)

                      Perhaps there is sombody, who wants to sell one or someone who knows somebody...

                      Location Austria or Germany

                      But maybe the search would end soon. I have found a suitable car in italy. Only the seller does not want to sell abroad, because it is difficult with the authorities.

                      Maybe someone can help me with this problem...

                      I am very grateful to you for any help.

                      Best regards

                        Ok, it's happened! From 1 february 2017 my Allroad is not welcome in Antwerp anymore, because of new ecological norms. I may go there only for a fee of 35 euros per day. Or I can buy a subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months. Or I can place particular filter for 900-1200 euro's and upgrade an Allroad to euro-4 norms... Or go there by bike or bus..

                        With such a manner they are forcing us to sell our good old real cars and to buy this modern rubbish. And Antwerp is only the beginning, such rules will soon be everywhere...

                        Such are the times, guys and girls... Sad...

                          2002 180bhp Tdi. Had it 2 months, replaced the compressor, full service including timing belt, tensioners, water pump and thermostat. So spent a lot already.

                          Scenario: wife out in it this morning lowered the drivers window but now that's it. Motor is working but won't lift.

                          Rear drivers side window works from the front but not from its on switch.

                          Probably a common problem but thought I'd check here before pulling the door card off.

                          Lovely drive though now that the suspension is working.

                            My n/s front passenger door wouldn't shut properly unless I pushed on the door & it would bounce back open little bit. I had tried spraying grease into the catch but this didn't work. Not wanting to be beaten by this, today I took the lock out & did as follows. Unclip & remove the micro switch in pic 1. Unscrew the two torx screws as shown in the pictures. Then whilst gently lifting the two tabs next to where the smallest torx screw was removed prise apart the lock mechanism. Spray white grease into all the mechanism. Then reassemble. Hey presto my door now shuts with ease like an Audi should....

                              I got a chance to test drive that 163 hp Allroad today, not in too bad a condition , could not tell any great deal power wise between it and the 180 hp version ,, it needs some attention small things like the right indicator light in the dash is wonky , the gas struts for the boot are shot and soon it will need breaks , but more seriously the suspension was slightly down on the back and the compressor was really really noisy and it took ages to raise between the levels and strangely to me also was that it took for ages to lower back down also.

                              But then I spotted that the drivers door was out of alignment , maybe crash damage or maybe a simple adjustment ?

                              I also bargained down the price by over 1/3 of the original asking price which is also slightly worrying ..... Thinking about it ....

                                This beauty took my eye earlier today and can't stop thinking about her since , but the only thing I'm worried about is the fact she's a 163 hp tdi , does anyone have any comparison of one of these with the 180 hp for example , are they ok to go or much more sluggish compared to the 180 hp ? She's manual so that should be a great help

                                    My C6 Allroad has developed the common fault of the front passenger door handle remaining locked, even though all doors are unlocked, and can then only be opened from the inside.

                                    I have read that the the only way to fix the fault is to replace the door locking mechanism. I have also read that there might be away of pulling the internal and external handles in a certain sequence to effectively re-program the lock - but not sure if this is a myth?!

                                    Has anyone else had this fault and found a sensible fix?

                                        Does anyone know how to use the air line fittings from Arnott. Especially how to remove the air line from an Arnott air suspension.

                                        The description says you have to remove the old fitting and just insert the air line into the pre-installed Arnott fitting. And you should not remove or tighten the air fitting from Arnott. I wonder how the removal of an Arnott suspension works then? How does it work to get the air line unlocked?

                                            She has covered 180.000 miles with history upto 166.000. Had the gearbox serviced etc. She benefits from heated leather interior.

                                            Decent tyres.

                                            Car is not the best condition. But no rust at all.

                                            She has mot until may next year. With the only advisorys being tyres and a cover over the lights. That has now been removed.

                                              Time to sell my Allroad,

                                              I'm selling as spares or repair as the car has developed a vibration at over 50mph.

                                              Comes with no M.O.T.

                                              However, the engine runs sweet as a nut,

                                              Body work is in very good condition.

                                              If anyone on here wants it and for the asking price, I will throw in a service kit, timing belt, thermostat and a few other bits and bobs I have for it.

She has a restaurant close to Ingolstadt where some big guys from Audi are coming to eat regularly. The previous owner was an Audi engineer who now has a javagreen Q5 or Q7. Very cool. She is not that sure anymore if she still wants to sell it. Anyway, I will visit her in Ingolstadt next year. She will have a look for me if somebody of the guests can help in finding more about the java history and to get some old pictures. And if she still sells it, she will let me know who will be the next owner (if he accepts) so I can stay in contact. Really exciting.

                                                            Would anyone be interested in my 2.7 C6 allroad? 2006 with 151k. Bags all good, engine good, loads of Audi history, all the toys. Selling because I've been offered another which has a sunroof. That is the only thing I miss in the current car. It has a few car park scrapes but a straight and honest example. £4950
