      2 good productive days. Got the n249 delete done yesterday an today got the dv relocation kit fitted and the polished charge pipe. The new oil cap came today so that's gone on aswell.

      Input wanted while we're at it. I've put the new charge pipe on an now I want to paint the 2 clamps for it as they stand out like an asbo tag on a chav! What colour without it looking tacky. I'm thinking black to keep with the rest of the car or have them carbon dipped to match the splitter and eventually the engine bay plastics??

        Well after finishing off polishing the charge pipe this morning I set about cracking on getting the N249 delete done before the dv relocation is started. The pipe work to the dv isn't set in yet as it'll b moved this week before anyone picks up on it lol.

        It's smoothed out the lift off throttle and gear changing than before an obviously now sounds a little different when dumping near full boost. Very happy with the result!!


        I've been looking at the top intercooler pipes an wondering how I'm gonna get to the bottom jubilee clips to remove, I'm hoping not a bumper off job, can anyone shed light on it?? Thanks all.

          Decided to tackle the fuel pump today which took just over 4 hours - taking my time at the different stages. Would feel confident doing another one but it takes a bit of patience & a few light heads!

          This is very much one of those jobs you need to feel your way into as familiarity is important.

          There are various notes on how to do these and to be honest I don't think any of them are very good and that includes the Bentley manual which I had by my side. Having said this, they do make more sense after you've struggled for a few hours!

          So, after putting it all back together and priming the new DeatschWerks pump for a couple of minutes with the ignition, she started up first time & Tickover was smooth and no issues.

          One question - where & how the hell do you re-fit the retainer strap?! (sorted now - see below) The retainer clip is connected to a fuel line and remains inside the tank at all times and hence is not in any of the pics below.

              Hi all — Audi TT MK 1

              Hi all

              I have a very annoying problem with my TT. Thought I'd ask on here in the hope that this is a common problem.

              Basically whenever I let off the throttle or lift the throttle, even minutely, the engine seems to jolt like it's lost power momentarily. This doesn't happen under hard acceleration/WOT runs, just when driving casually under gradual boost. It's quite annoying as I cant seem to get a smooth gear change.

              Definitely doesn't feel mount/stabiliser related, it's more to do with the running of the engine.

              Ive changed the N75 and diverter valve and still no difference. Any ideas?

                  Ok guys bit of advice from you if you please. Just come back from about an hour motorway journey and left it idling for a couple of mins (secondary coolant pump not working) noticed it was smoking quite a bit and a bit of a blue tinge so obviously oil. Pcv system replaced a year ago so hopefully not that again, no smell of burning oil on exhaust and level is as it was lost nothing. Thinking turbo oil seals, feed/return pipes. I did rev it a couple of times after spotting it smoking on idle and the it died down considerably. Is there any other places to check? Thanks

                    Just to remind you...

                    The sales page was started to save you all scrolling past endless for sale posts. With a group this large it happens, members suggested it so we implemented it.

                    This page is primarily for help and advice, if you don't like it and can't help but post sarcastic comments then you're free to leave. Admin work hard to keep the group as it should be..

                    Perhaps... we should start being "idiot police" as well.

                    Just a thought.. enjoy your day !

                    For those of you who don't know or who can't be bothered reading the pinned post, all sales, wants and services should be on our sales page.

                      Good Morning TT People, I've been having a misfire issue on my 2001 Audi TT Mk1 225bhp BAM engine 189,000 miles. You can feel it on tickover, it was only slight to start with and is still drivable now. But I have noticed a slight bit of holding back on pulling away. I've plugged my code reader in, first it said random misfire and then it said misfire cylinder 3. So I changed the coil packs round, but still the same issue. Also just to mention, I put a new set of plugs in when I serviced the car a couple of months ago. So I've had another look today, I've found that one of the coil packs seemed smelly

                              After some advice from people who know how to set up turbo actuators please! I have boost drop off issues and have been told by my mapper (and came to the conclusion testing various things myself) that it's a weak actuator (or maybe turbo but I'm gunna start with the actuator first).

                              So I'm running a stage 2 map requesting 1.5bar boost pressure. I reach about 1.2 before it drops off, so I've purchased a forge actuator with a yellow spring. I believe the fitting procedure is fit new actuator, set waste gate to fully closed, wind nut up, give it extra 3 turns preload, then lock other nut upto it?

                              Anyone else have more advice? Is it smart to use the yellow spring or should I stick with standard greeny?

                                Guys who track their car... thinking about taking the TT for a track day for a bit of fun now it's not being used as a daily. It's pretty much a standard car other than a RamAir and the potential drivers will be amateurs with me being the most experienced at this sort of driving. What is best to do to prepare the car before hand? What tyre pressures do you run? What do you do about petrol? Will a tank last a day? Is it worth filling with the extra super stuff you can get near some tracks? Any etiquette I should be aware of? Also plan on driving there and back, what happens if I break it there and can't bring it back? Do you use track day insurance? How much do you pay?

                                    Good morning everyone, I wonder if somebody could shed some light on a problem I'm having with my MK1 Roadster alarm. Last year I replaced the batteries as described elsewhere in the forum to great success. I came to test the alarm last weekend and only the indicators flash- no audible alarm.

                                    I opened up the siren and found the top corner of the pcb to be badly burnt, tracks gone, SMD chip cap and R000 completely vaporized.- It was not like this last year when I repaired it and it worked fine for over 6 months.

                                    So I ordered a used one from a breaker "Guaranteed working" put it in over 24hrs ago and same problem. Am I that unlucky that both are dead or is there something wrong elsewhere? I have had a look at the fuse layout but it mentions nothing about the Alarm. Any help greatly appreciated :-)

I know it's an old bus but omg what a well put together machine. It's done 145k miles and has wanted nothing doing in 3 years of owning it! Anyway on a dual Carriageway going fairly slow coming out of roadworks I got a TT sat on my arse, to cut a long story short after one 3rd gear pull I handed said arse to him on a plate lmao turned out to be a 225 with a very nice sounding exhaust! Has anyone though about transplanting the 4.4 V8 from the e39 into the TT?

                                          Last September i took my dashpod to Cluster Repairs Uk based in Waltham Abbey Essex.I took the pod out and it was repaired whilst i waited.These are the faults i had on it,pixelated center lcd screen,faulty tempreture gauge and a dead lamp on the rev counter behind 3000rpm mark.

                                          Well all the problems have come back and under the warranty it can all be fixed.I paid £180 all in for a full dashboard rebuilt. I have been told they rarely have them returned under warranty.

                                          They now need the dashpod for two days to look at it to see where the fault is.

                                          Anyone had this happen after a full rebuild.

                                            Hi guys, I am just going to give a write up on the 50/50 powertrack insert install. This is a guide if you are looking to move to 50/50 torque split full time on your Quattro system, instead of the 90/10, 70/30 from the factory. I had trouble finding any guides online which made it frustrating for me, at one point I thought i was going to have to pay a mechanic to drop Mr. Haldex down enough. It's actually really simple! This guide will cover the circlip insert as well as the 17mm hex bolt. They are in the same location, however for MY 2002 and above, they use the circlip (Like mine). Please double verify which insert you need before buying. There is a hex head bolt at the top of all Haldex units, what you need to feel/look for is directly on top of the controller, not the rest of the Haldex.


                                            Please browse through the attached photos first, as well as read the full guide before performing any actions.

                                            So first off you will need to identify specific parts and their locations. Once you have your vehicle on jackstands, a lift, whatever, look at the rear differential. at the front, you will see a small screw for draining the Haldex coupling oil. I recommend changing the oil, especially if you do not know the last time it was changed, like me. There are plenty of guides online. At the rear of the diff, you will see two bolts holding a cover with wire plugs attached. This is where the Haldex Controller can be unplugged for removal. Now, at the front, right, upper side of the diff you will see the words Haldex. That is the Haldex controller location, and the item we will be removing to install the powertrack insert. In the pictures below, you will see where the two bolts mount the controller to the haldex unit.

                                            If you plan on a Haldex oil change (PN G 052 175 A1) please first drain the oil, as you will lose some oil upon removal of the controller. Do not lose the plug or it's washer. Some oil change kits come with a new plug and washer (I recommend getting a new one)

                                              Hey all. Need some input please. 2002 TT 225. Wiper fluid leak, and the silly low fluid light. I replaced the pumps for windshield and headlights. Could not see any leak after staring at it for 20 minutes. I did notice the low level light came on AFTER I had headlights on, AND used the wiper fluid. Then it followed with the low fluid light.

                                              I am thinking of just pulling the fuse for the headlight pump. It seems like that may be pumping the fluid continuously, but I'm not sure.

                                              Any input from the forum? And thanks.

                                                Any advice guys on diverter valves. I believe mines pretty duff on the TT I've just bought. Haven't had time to look yet which one it has but the car is making quite a lot of whistling/whurring. When you let off the throttle it sounds like it let's more out. Also it holds on to a little biy of revs when gear change. Also I have nothing to compare my TT to buy I'm not exactly impressed with it's performance. Seems very slow and then a huge turbo lag and then something happens but not at an amazing rate imo. Certainly not as quick as my manual fto mivec. So any tips on which DV to get? As I've been recommended forge but they are a bit minty. Are the eBay ones from spooled-up up to the task does anyone know or have experience? As I dont know for sure it even is the dv at fault, even if I suspect it is. Also a quick guide on exactly where it is as I haven't looked yet. Saves me a few minutes scratching my head haha. Cheers all

As the OEM one from TPS is £500 which is bloody silly, and the one on eBay is much less and loads have been sold. It's only a tensioner, surely these are good enough?! Anyone used one?! Thanks

                                                  Soooooo...... thinking of selling up. Really just can't use the car anymore as my route to work has horrendous roads and I don't have the room for two cars outside the house we have moved to. I've owned the car three times after selling it, regretting it and buying it back but now I really can't justify having it just sat there any longer. If anyone is interested, I will get round to doing a proper advert eventually but if you have any questions for now, just let me know. Will be asking for £5k - I know it needs more info to justify the price - I will get round to it.

                                                      Hi guys, I am after some advice or guidance if possible - I have a 3.2 roadster and want to fit a Cruise Control unit to my '05. I have purchased the unit you see on the left image from eBay (Genuine Audi TT 8n Cruise Control Module, I have taken my car to a local specialist and he thinks that the CC module cannot be retro-fitted to this car. I have been in touch with the nearest Audi dealer parts dept and they say it cannot be fitted retrospectively.

                                                      I have been on the TT Forum and looked at a few posts and it looks like it can - the local specialist says the arm fits fine but there is nowhere for the wiring to connect.....

                                                      Has anyone else tried this mod and come across the same problem? Has anyone then offered you a solution or a person who has first hand experience of the 'fix'? Otherwise it could be £124 wasted.....

                                                      Hoping for a positive outcome.

                                                        But anyways I fitted a new arm today topped up the diff oil and now when you drive it there is a whining noise no crunching or grinding though I've looked into it abit and heard about this hadex filter and solution could that maybe needing changed and will it stop the whining

                                                          Quick update on my MoT ordeal this week with my local Audi Dealership — Audi TT MK 1

                                                          Quick update on my MoT ordeal this week with my local Audi Dealership.

                                                          As you may remember, they'd failed it on items (some of which were questionable, bear with me on this) and were asking three grand to get it MoT-worthy.

                                                          I took it to my local independent garage after sorting the windscreen myself (through insurance, £75 excess) and the tyre (mobile fitter, £95).

                                                          The garage did the work, fitting it in between other jobs, and after 3 days, I picked the car up on Saturday 8am with an MoT.

                                                          They replaced the CV boot, both front arm bushes, fitted the 2nd-hand rear caliper I supplied them with, and retested, total bill was £268 all inc, parts/labour/retest... even if I factor in the full price of a new windscreen, tyre, caliper etc on top of that, I'd still have only shelled out 1/3 of what the dealership wanted.

                                                          And some of the things that were failed on first time round weren't even an issue this time?! Like the headlight washer jets (aliens)... passed. "Fractured Anti-roll bars"...? Advisory only, "corroded but not dangerous".

                                                          Lesson learned, don't let your MoT expire and ask an Audi dealership to "sort it" for you. (y) :-\

                                                              HELP I NEED ADVICE PLS. I'm in the process of replacing my air induction hose with a Badger5 TIP. The old hose is far worse than I realised and has one side pipe totally broken off and the connection to the turbo was split and knackered.

                                                              1. Is it normal to have lots of oily residue in all of the connecting pipes? Where the splits were this oily crap has been spat out all over the engine and turbo.

                                                              2. I took the hockey puck off as one pipe virtually collapsed and found more oil and shit loads of yellow crap! What is it and is this a sign that my car is about to die? The turbo spins fine with about 0.5 mm of play. Do I need to replace hockey puck as well as these crappy hoses as no shit is in puck?

                                                              3. On the first picture is a plastic pipe that inserts into the side of the Badger5. It went to the very middle of the old pipe but only reaches the edge of the new one. Should I cut the Badger5 pipe down to make it the same as original?. Many thanks in advance for any words of wisdom.

                                                                Can't remember who asked about removal of the CCM

                                                                Here's something from the TTF

                                                                I just repaired my wife's RHD 2004 roadster comfort module.

                                                                The unit can be found behind the hoop behind the driver. On the shelf behind the hoop is a small oval inspection panel. Remove this and you will see the module bolted to a bulkhead. To remove it you will need to take off two nuts at the top of the module with a 10 mm 1/4 inch socket.

                                                                You will now need to go into the boot and remove the small storage unit at the back, it is held in place at the top with two plastic things, I used a small pair of needle pliers and put them behind the head and pulled hard, they do come out. With the storage bit out you will see the unbolted unit, it is still held in position at the bottom by a spring clip, just wiggle it about and it does come away.

                                                                I then pulled on the loom a bit to free a bit more cable. I then put a clothe on the metal lip of the storage unit to protect the module, it only just comes into the boot, sort of. Then unplug the five connectors and it will be free to come out.

                                                                I found that the pins that had the yellow plug had verdigris, I used a scalpel knife to scrape away the mess and then score the plastic between the pins just to make sure ther was no more tracking.

                                                                I then put the connectors back on and then reprogrammed the keys by putting one in the ignition and turned on but engine not running, shut door, boot and then manually locked door with other key, pressed the button on the key and flashers flashed and everything than worked OK or both keys in one go.

                                                                Just reverse the above to put everything back again and all should be well.

                                                                I hope this is of use to some people and good luck in trying this

Now that I took the break light switch off to change it over, euros gave me the wrong one so I stuck the original one back in and now it don't come on at all, neither with the lights on or off or when the break is applied. Now all fuses are fine so would you say it's most definitely the break light switch is nackered, it looks fine and looks like it works fine but I can't be sure. Any help would be great.

                                                                        It was up on the lift today and the mechanic said I need to sort the rear suspension out. The springs just lifted out and there was no rubber in the top. The springs are Koni 1533047120. Can I buy standard Sline springs? Are they any different to other TT springs? Where can I get them without getting a second mortgage?

                                                                        Any other advice appreciated. The car is low and looks great at the moment but is not practical where I live.

                                                                              What did she think I had an elephant? So, since I had time on my hands on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Dog Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I'd lost 10 kilograms before I woke up in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

                                                                              I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with My Dog nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in queue was now enthralled with my story.)

                                                                              Horrified, she asked me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off the kerb to sniff a Labradors arse and a car hit me.

                                                                              I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. I'm now banned from Tesco's

                                                                                So I'm not even sure if this car is beyond help, after being sat for 3 weeks my APX engine TT wouldn't start. This was 4 months ago. I've steadily been trying to figure out what's wrong with it when I've had time. With some serious cranking and persuasion it will start but misfires really, really bad until it gets warm (lots of high revving whilst still cold which doesn't make me feel good!). It'll then idle perfectly fine when warm but as soon as it's driven under load it'll misfire, back fire etc. So far I've drained the fuel out and replaced it, tested the fuel pump and it's fine. Checked cylinder compression and it's fine. Replaced plugs and coilpacks. Checked injectors and they seem fine. Run a diagnostic plenty of times and doesn't come up with any errors! What else could be causing this? I don't want to take it anywhere as I'm reluctant to put another penny into into it!!

Totally ruined the mood. Now, I didn't know Joseph THAT well, don't even remember where he was from, but let' just say I put my plans on hold to help him through his injuries.

                                                                                  Joseph had gotten big glass shard in his eye, making him completely blind in that eye. He was walking around with one of those cotton pads on his eye for a couple of months. Then suddenly, he disappeared, along with my girlfriend

                                                                                  Apparently they'd bonded during the time after his injuries, and eloped together , left me behind without as much as a note. I tried to track them down, but never could.

                                                                                  In conclusion, if it hadn't been for cotton eye Joe, I'd have been married a long time ago. Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from, cotton eye Joe?

So I recently took my car for a stage 2 map, and they said they could only get 240/250hp out of it max due to what they think is a faulty turbo actuator. They also showed me the rolling road graph (attached) now my question is, is this obviously a weak turbo actuator? I say this as I've now brought a forge one, but don't really want to return with the problem being something silly like a big boost leak rather than the said actuator. I've checked over and fixed all leaks in the breather system and front intercooler pipes. But it's slowly getting worse, I'm only producing 230hp now and the symptoms before were that I use to boost upto 1.4 bar then it would come down pretty much instantly and hold at 1 bar. Now it only holds 0.7 bar. Any help appreciated thanks!

As you can see, the engine tab has no code stamped on it, no sticker in the trunk, and the only thing I can find is this sticker with ATC on it. I can't find much information on the ATC motor, and it makes it hard to know what parts to order for it. Also, any idea what the wire clipped on the injector wire could be for? Thanks for the help.

                                                                                                      Lots of new members, soooo, if you didn't know already? most TTs can get a FREE recall on original coil packs, call AUDI with your Reg or chassis number and if your car is eligible they will book it in to change your original coils. APX coil packs aren't included tho.

                                                                                                      You can also ask for a free health check on your car (yes, they might find lots of things wrong), but, you're under no obligation to get them done there,

                                                                                                      Altho they will price match other garages if they use OEM parts. They even price match on tyres and they offer fixed price servicing on some things, haldex oil and filter and alignment too. Worth asking about x

His forehead is more like a 6head, probably 7 of his girly fingers! Carly isnt a dog with nits, she is either a dog with fleas, or a woman with nits, but either way if she is an Avatar they don't get nits, so make up your mind.

I know most of the stuff I post on here is usually a load of bollocks or taking the mickle (usually out of myself!) But that's just the point. My car as much as it's liked or disliked has brought me to this amazing group and I've made friends with alot of people and maybe a few enemies maybe as I can be a little outspoken but non the less I have events to go to where I can meet many of the people on here and we are looking forward to that a great deal. Before I get the.... stfu comments lol what I am trying to say is I feel extremely privileged to be part of a group no that's not right a family that looks out for each other, there are a lot of things going on in many people's lives including my own and this page is a welcome pitstop which you all contribute to. So I personally would like to say as I'm sure you all would a big thank you to the amazing work the admin team do as I've seen groups with 1000 members turn ferocious, to control 10k is fantastic so cheers to you all and look forward to meeting many of you over the coming years.

                                                                                                            I repaired my radio cassette volume control with contact cleaner aerosol.

                                                                                                            It would come on too loud, if you touched it it would be full. And then zero.

                                                                                                            The first attempt with the unit out and complete made it worse.

                                                                                                            So I took off the top and bottom panels. 4 Torx screws hold the face, which has a Block connection like a face off stereo.

                                                                                                            4 screws hold a black plastic cover. 4 More hold the circuit board, and 2 More hold the light diffuser. The volume button pulls off. Spray it copiously (outside, fire risk, intoxication risk, asphyxiation risk) and dry thoroughly.

                                                                                                            It now has a satisfying clicking feel as it goes round and the whole repair cost about £2

At the moment when I'm really wanting to throw her into the corners, like on a track, I'm having to fill the boot with about 100kg of ballast (usually my spare steely wheel and a big bag) to counter the big V6 lump in the front.

                                                                                                              What kind of spoiler upgrade options do we have, without adding an ironing board?
