Tip & How-To about Audi A4

VW and Audi cars - free online OEM part numbers and exploded diagrams for your cars

If you own an Audi or a Volkswagen, here's a great site to help you identify parts on your car:


This is an abbreviation for Volkswagen Audi Group Catalog. It's an online resource that will help you identify parts on your car when something breaks. Simply go to the site, sign up for your particular car (it's free), and then you can begin browsing the catalog of diagrams. The cars are first broken down into major subsystems (engine cooling, engine electrical, engine mechanical, interior, body, brakes, etc), and further broken down once your category is selected.

Once you're into the subsystem you need, you'll see an exploded parts diagram, with each part represented by shape, size, and location, and indexed by a marking number. On the right side of the page, you'll see a list of those index numbers, and next to each is the factory name and factory part number for that piece. It's a great way to find out what that broken thing under the hood is, or that bent piece on the suspension, so you can provide the OEM part number to your dealer to ensure you get the correct replacement part.

looking for a english service manual for a 1994 Audi 80

The normal workshop manual source is the Haynes Manual...but unfortunately (as you may already know) they have not produced one yet for this model (According to their website, this is "under consideration"

A recommended source of free information (basically a parts catalogue but not a manual )can be found here

Try www.vagcat.com and sign up (free) for your specific car. It gives exploded diagrams with OEM part numbers for most of the assemblies in the car, and that setup may be in there.

ignition barrel

I'm not positive which one it is but you can confirm this yourself online. Go to www.vagcat.com (VW Audi Group Catalog) and register for your particular car (it's free). The site gives you exploded diagrams for every system in the car, complete with OEM Audi part numbers. Get yours, then register for a similar year A4 as well, and see if its ignition switch carries the same part number. It's a great site for identifying parts and knowing what you're ordering when you go to the dealership.
